Northern Avenue Bridge, Pier and Multi-cultural Pavilion

The Northern Avenue Bridge, Pier & Pavilion is investigation into two types of assemblage.  The first being the ways in which diverse groups of people can assemble together for common relationships.  The project features small individual reflection spaces, commuter reception space, boat dock, open pier gathering space, and a large multi-cultural pavilion.  All of these spaces are designed to embrace the spiritual qualities found in and around the bridge.The way in which this places are physically assembled is the second half of the exploration.  The design process in an investigation into the "Digital Fabrication Loop" This is the process in which prototypes are designed within the computer and then outputted.  The prototype then informs the digital,, where changes are made and outputted again.  The bridge itself most importantly embodies a similar process.  Small components of the bridge are designed and made as part of a larger collection of assemblies which then form the bridge.The historic swing bridge and the new pier/pavilion together express new and old methods of craft.
