2012: Transforming the Bridge | 12267

Team: Adam Kerechanin, Camille Cazon

Location: Dallas, Texas

Overview: The bridge design, Feedback, addresses sustainability and response in many ways. First and foremost the design promotes bicycling, but the bridge is no longer just a connector, but a destination as well. Four bike share racks are positioned at even increments along the bridge, meaning youÕll always be within a 2-3 minute walk of a bicycle station and anyone can travel the half mile bridge in about a quarter of the time it takes to walk. This accessibility makes the vast bridge more suitable for diverse uses at either end. A farmerÕs market in the West Concourse sells fresh, locally sourced food while the East Concourse houses artist studios, collaborative workshops, and non-profits who serve the local community. Shipping containers are used as an adaptable, modular, and temporary means of utilizing this space. The central span serves as a splendid lookout as well as a dynamic performance venue. In the Central Span, the bicycle path rises into a one-way elevated track loop that encircles the performance space, allowing for unique views while also serving the practical purpose of traffic control. Lastly, the lower level is powered by the electromagnetic energy of the vehicular traffic passing above.
