The Harp (officially known as Samuel Beckett Bridge), Dublin, Ireland.

Samuel Beckett Bridge is a cable-stayed bridge in Dublin that joins Sir John Rogerson’s Quay on the south side of the River Liffey to Guild Street and North Wall Quay in the Docklands area.
The architect is Santiago Calatrava. This is the second bridge in the area designed by Calatrava, the first being the James Joyce Bridge, which is further upstream.
The shape of the spar and its cables is said to evoke an image of a harp lying on its edge.
