Elegant Bridge

Architecture: Inform Studio & Buro Happold
Project: Providence River Pedestrian Bridge
Location: Providence, US

The development of a comfortable and functional public space on a bridge is a relatively new and quite rare phenomenon. Therefore, every implemented example deserves attention. Considering my unhealthy love for this class of engineering structures, their value becomes even higher.

If you remove the water from the background, it may seem that we are looking at a part of the recreational area of some development. Here you have multi-level design, lighting, landscaping, benches, and surfaces with trendy concrete-wooden coverings.

The shape is, of course, a bit odd, but look how organically this structure fits into the overall landscape in the aerial view!
