The proposed design is not intended to be seen just as a normal bridge or a path which is just the shortest link. The existing structure fulfills this requirement well enough. It can be structures, areas, surfaces or places strengthening interaction, focused on performance in many ways, on what it can give in return to the Eco-system, nature and society due to claiming of a piece of land.
The outcome is a 35 meters wide and 144 meters long platform which would hover and stretch beyond the focus area to create a seamless connection with the land and improve pedestrian connections. 10th Street Bridge would concentrate on creating a positive impact offering a varied program and presenting a new neighborhood park which would be a retreat for residents and a territory to explore for motorists who travel along the roadway without stopping. The top part of the strip would be entirely devoted to pedestrians,green areas and urban farming making it a pleasant destination for contemplation for some and a desirable urban place for other individuals to interact. The underside would be covered with a mirror surface which would reflect the ambient. Modifications applied on each side of the lifted surface would be positioned in specific points oriented towards interesting and visually appealing places in the city and the nearest surrounding.
