The Bridge City
Best Project of Public Building or Facility
About the project
In our project The Bridge City, we take inspiration from the universal concept of form and space proposed by avante-garde and suprematism movements almost one hundred years ago. The vision of suprematism inspired architecture to seek union and harmony with nature by creating special compositions that are elevated above the ground plane and seemingly soar above the landscape.
The Bridge City structure’s main goal is to combine the utility of the transportation artery of the bridge and elevated highway and add to this function many square miles of usable space for multipurpose development for use in commercial, residential, and recreational purposes.
In addition, The Bridge City structure could be used as flood and storm mitigation and barrier asset and also urban shelter for neighboring coastal communities. The Bridge City structure could incorporate flood protection systems within lower levels and upper levels could shelter thousands of people in the time of weather emergency.
