Hudson River Bridge

This studio concentrates on the design of foot and bike bridges, and the final design is a pedestrian/cyclist bridge connecting New York and New Jersey by crossing the Hudson River. Pedestrian bridges differ from other types of structures, for they have the freedom of being highly expressive, light, and sculptural. The overall concrete form of the bridge hinges on the differences between two cities and its connection to the urban fabric. Characterized by rising residential development, Hoboken is a quiet and serene city, which is in clear juxtaposition with the boisterous, cultural hub of Manhattan. The landing location of NJ is placed next to Hoboken’s Pier C Park, Sinatra Park, and Hoboken plaza, so as to accentuate suburban living and green space.
