Bridge that rolls up

Watching telly this evening I finally heard the word I needed to go a-googling after this bridge:

Cute, yes?

Slightly bigger versions of those pictures, and a description of how it works, here.

The word I needed was Heatherwick, the name of the designer. BBC4 TV had a show about him this evening.

More recently, Heatherwick has done this. Which was unveiled this very evening, apparently.
