The Weaving Bridges is designed as a light-conscious construction of future mobility above the Cross Bronx Expressway, with a syntax of cable-stayed bridge systems. The design intervenes in the expressway to prevent pollution and provide transportation and potential educational benefits for the surrounding communities that cannot afford a vehicle for transportation but suffer from the noise and air pollution. The main program elements include educational events, a study area, and a gallery. To raise health awareness and prevent emissions from the Cross Bronx Expressway, a series of lightweight PVC-PES filter devices are embedded in between the cable-stayed framework.
This project was a collaboration with students from the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University to imagine new ways of expanding the intermarriage of social policy and design. It intended to re-envision infrastructure that has harmed the well-being of those who are of color or socioeconomically disadvantaged.
