What's Our Approach?
Bridge X is an X-periment,
A Process of Discovery.
Brooklyn Bridge has always been an experiment.
It was a test of technology – could towers be built in the East River to support the magnificent bridge?
It was a test of policy – would the bridge support New York’s economic development?
It was a test of community – how would the two cities change after construction of the bridge?
Let community ideas be the drive for design
In order to answer those questions and understand the context, we reached out to a variety of stakeholders with the following questions in mind:
"Who should the Brooklyn Bridge be for? "
"What do we need the Bridge to be?"
Design & Strategy
Reclaim and create space for all to enjoy
TODO: briefly describe our UD/UP interventions here and how it responds to the insights we collected above
A Bridge That Truly Connects
Bridge X encourages more people to comfortably cross the bridge by diverting existing vehicular traffic through a multipronged approach.
Navigating and Interacting with the Bridge in New Ways
Bridge X offers a digital presence via its website and mobile phone application, in addition to traditional engagement methods. These digital elements introduce new ways for people to engage with the bridge infrastructure and community while providing Bridge X with a platform for collecting planning ideas and feedback. The dynamism of Bridge X welcomes a wide range of visitors, who in-turn inform future interventions.
