Pickering GO Pedestrian Bridge

Located in Pickering just east of Toronto, this major pedestrian bridge over Highway 401 and CN rail lines connects the GO train transit station on the south side to parking and commercial development to the north. Constructed of a simple exposed truss and clad in perforated metal panels, the undulating sculptural form provides dramatic framed views east and west along the highway.  Programmable LED lighting creates vibrant changing light patterns at night.   When Teeple Architects commissioned me, we immediately discussed aerial photography as a way to showcase the sheer length of the pedestrian bridge, as well as the context, from local buildings to the nearby Ontario lake, all the way to the Toronto skyline.   With the...

Pedestrian Bridge over Miramon Park

The footbridge at Miramon Green Park is thought as an instrument to discover the Park as you walk along. Created as an additional walk of the park, its curved design invites to look towards the parkand and it reduces the perception of its slope. The footbridge is characterized by two lines which with their movement defines the footbridge and its connection to the ground, but they mainly define a trace in the landscape. The footbridge has a curved part, providing a nicer view at the beginning of the walk, and creating a natural way, a viewpoint over the landscape. More

Murex

The large scrolls of a “Murex” shell emerging from the sand of the long coast of Bahrain, have inspired the Italian architect Giancarlo Zema for the design of the iconic pedestrian bridge connecting the water restaurant with the artificial island that houses the Four Seasons Hotel. A highly sculptural and poetic sign to donate to the city of Manama something more than just a pedestrian link. An ideal place to meet and socialize all day round to enjoy the magnificent and unusual sight in the heart of Bahrain Bay. The sinuous architectural shell made of tubular steel with bright terminals, stretches out on both sides for 250 meters above the water, to a maximum height of 10 meters. The pedestrian pier made of teak has a variable width from 6... More

Telekom Bridge across Bundesstrasse B9

The footbridge for Europe's largest telecommunication company is an elegant, slender concrete structure that connects the company´s buildings on both road sides in a sweeping gesture. The elevation of the bridge is defined by the clearance height of the tram. Thus, the walk-way supported by steel columns leads through the tree tops along the highly frequented but beautiful tree-lined boulevard. Abutment points, where the bridge is supported on bearing plates to place it on the ground, occur on both sides of the road. On each face side, set against the bridge, there are elevators standing as light solitaries to delineate the structure. Hanging underneath the bridge are folded steel stairs marking the connecting paths to the buildings. The or... More
