+(plus) Bridge

A winning entry for the Northern Avenue Bridge Competition in Boston, sponsored by the City of Boston and the Boston Society of Architects (BSA). The +(plus) Bridge will connect two distinct and vibrant neighborhoods of Boston through a series of layered programming and outdoor spaces that act as both expedient thoroughfare and a meandering public path. The bridge is designed as place of exchange where various modes of transportation, user type, and public programming coexist to form a dynamic interstitial neighborhood and a new urban destination. +(plus) Bridge replaces a beloved piece of Boston harbor infrastructure with a new kind of infrastructure: a structure for place making, harbor viewing, waterway crossing, and environmental awareness.
