2012: Transforming the Bridge | 12154

Team: Dwight Yee, Eric Egenolf

Location: Salt Lake City, Utah

Overview: Over|Under + Through
Transforming Cleveland’s Detroit-Superior Bridge lower level into dedicated space for artistic exhibition, social and commercial interaction, and personal transit is an opportunity to re-invent the public’s physical relationship with the bridge and create an icon of adaptive re-use and revitalization.

Installation of repeated S-shaped steel frames within the existing bridge sections provides structure for exterior perforated metal skins and interior wood decks, defining and connecting space OVER, UNDER, and THROUGH the lower level.

The existing pedestrian walkway on the north side upper level is re-purposed as a dedicated west-bound bikeway. A new exterior skin shades and protects the path from harsh weather, making it more attractive for daily commuters.

Hanging adjacent to the south side lower level, a new bikeway provides dedicated space to east-bound traffic. Taking advantage of the sectional qualities surrounding the bridge, this new path provides cyclists with a direct link without a significant elevation change.

Created as a new platform spanning across the lower level, the main concourse provides the public with space for recreation, relaxation and gathering. The elevated deck allows for new utilities to be routed to amenities as needed, and can be rearranged depending on the evolution of the Bridge.
