Three key projects of C19 architectural engineer Isambard Brunel's greatest acheivements for a touring exhibition, celebrating his work, 'Isambard Kingdom Brunel: Recent Works'. The Design Museum, London, U.K. 2000-2002.
Recognised as the worlds first industrial designer. Brunel's work included the Royal Albert Bridge at Saltash, which connects Devon and Cornwall over the river Tamar. Commissioned by the Design Museum, Tyrrell designed abstract models using various media, that could be touched, including a 25 foot long version of the Royal Albert Bridge as well as a full scale section through.
