The Weston link bridge is one of the few new building additions at the Royal Academy of Arts and a pivotal element in creating a new campus. By connecting the RA’s two buildings, the bridge creates a public passageway and opens up the institution, revealing more of its life and collections. The masterplan involved the refurbishment of two listed buildings and promoted the repair and restoration of much of the existing fabric.⁠
