This bridge is the result of Joseph Strauss, an engineer who is responsible for more than 400 pictures a bridge, although much smaller than the Golden Gate Bridge, and mostly on the continent. Strauss has spent more than one dekadi to gather support in Northern California. Strauss's initial proposal for this location is not really good, consisting of a large cantilever on each side of which is connected to the centralized suspension. Another important person of the project include architect Irving Morrow, responsible for the touch of Art Deco and color options, and technician Charles Alton Ellis and bridge designer Leon Moisseiff, who work together in complex mathematics involved.
