Footbridge Over the Railways in Villetaneuse, France

Saturday, March 30th, 2013

Article source: DVVD

The long-awaited Villetaneuse Université interchange is now taking shape. Although this is a good thing in terms of urban development, it also exacerbates the division between north and south due to the ensuing concentration of networks and traffic lanes. Consequently, the footbridge serves a twofold role: access to the station and a link between neighbourhoods. It needs to play its part in the interchange at the same time as fulfilling its role as an urban connection between North and South, improving traffic flow. As an urban landmark, it must also create clarity for the town’s flagship spaces and buildings: the Town Hall, University, sailing centre, interchange, and so on.

The Gold Line Bridge in Arcadia, California by Andrew Leicester

Sunday, February 24th, 2013

Article source: Andrew Leicester 

As the largest, single public art/transit infrastructure project in California, we believe the Gold Line Bridge would be a very unique and special entry for coverage. The Gold Line Bridge has set many precedents. The Construction Authority wanted the art to lead the engineering, so an artist was hired before the architect and contractor. In 2010, the Construction Authority put out a national call and selected Andrew Leicester, an award-winning public artist from Minnesota.

Water at-traction in Paris, France by bureau faceB

New structure for new uses : a pedestrian bridge to stroll along the water

It’s in the heart of the city. One of its major attraction. However, you can barely feel it. Maybe on a boat, a little bit on bridges, anyway without intimacy. On the contrary La Seine has to be seen as an out of time place, telling you stories and History. A link through time and space: the water attraction.
