2012: Transforming the Bridge | 12310

Team: Catarina Violante, Philip michael Coelho

Location: Obidos, Portugal

Overview: The Detroit Superior Bridge is the ultimate icon of an industrialized Cleveland that is visually characterized by an endless intersection of metallic beams. This graphic frenzy belongs to the cityÕs landscape and most importantly to a collective memory of ClevelandÕs people.

Consideration is definitively the most significant guideline for our proposal. By leaving the bridge untouched and creating shapes that either embrace the existing structure or flow along with it, we use the potential of the existing frame to create an atmosphere on which people will most effectively take advantage of.

Inspired by the industrial environment in which the bridge seems to remain forever we add shapes that derive from the industrial process of sheet metal. We recreate this process by folding stripes of paper in rocky shapes that materialized with weathered steel, concrete and grass work as a resembling element to a riverbank.

This project lives in the most particular way through time. The City Museum is homage to the past, the Walkway is a leisure area that enriches everyday lives in the present and the LightBox that is a multi purpose venue tries to predict how the city will look like in the future.
