The Bagley Avenue Pedestrian Bridge is the winning submission of a 1998 design competition sponsored by the Federal Highway Administration and the Michigan Department of Transportation. The pedestrian bridge is the most consequential part of a multi-million dollar highway interchange between I-75, I-96 and the Ambassador Bridge leading to Canada. The pedestrian bridge was a critical gesture to the Mexicantown community in the city of Detroit in order to mitigate the bifurcation of their community when the highways were first introduced in the 1950's. The re-unification of a community severed by a chasm of highways demands a connection that heals the wound within the landscape and offers a vision towards a unified whole. The pedestrian bridge is a mediator of various adjacent landmarks that speak to the notion of place at various scales. The morphology responds to the alignments of these landmarks as a processional experience across the bridge.
