The objective was to redefine the bridge, to create a new entrance to the city and a safe public pedestrian path.
The challenge of the project lies in the relationship of the old masonry bridge and the new design. The entire balustrade with variable geometry, the flowing single curvature frame, and the underside cowling allow the new design to integrate while standing out from the existing structure.
The bridge widens in the center to form a viewing platform and a resting place, that allows pedestrians to pause and appreciate the flora and flow of the River Lion that passes under the bridge.
Collaboration with @sterlingpresser architects, STRAINS engineers, BUCA structures.
