A design for a new footbridge to span Sheffield's Parkway has been chosen because it is "a simple and optimistic icon for the region".
The new bridge will be 'an optimistic icon'
The bridge was designed by a Danish architect and features a large 'O' design with wires running from the top of the structure and along the bridge.
Judges who viewed entries for the bridge design looked at concepts from experts in 14 countries.
Work on the £2m bridge is expected to begin in the autumn.
The brief had been to design a bridge that would be "a pleasure to cross".
The bridge will offer a crossing point over the A630 Parkway, which links the city centre with the M1 motorway.
It will span the border of Sheffield and Rotherham, with Tinsley golf course at one end.
Chairman of the judging panel, architect Nik Randall, said he had "every confidence it will become a much-loved local landmark".
Sheffield councillor Mary Lea said the design would "provide a memorable feature on the busiest gateway into the city".
