Missouri River Pedestrin Bridge Design Competition





Designing an iconic structure within a set budget was the assignment for this new pedestrian bridge connecting the cities of Omaha, Nebraska and Council Bluffs, Iowa. The illumination of the rounded shape of the arch was intended to be visible to pedestrians on the bridge and viewers of the bridge from elsewhere in the area. The articulated underside of the bridge was washed with light to create reflections in the water and to provide light at the river overlooks located under the bridge.
