Providence Department of Planning and Development has announced that inFORM studio and Buro Happold have won the Providence River Pedestrian Bridge Design Competition.

inFORM studio and Buro Happold entry states:

The proposed Providence River Pedestrian Bridge can become a spatial mediator between urban and ecological spaces and function as an integrated series of programs into the waterfront public spaces, allowing east and west to become a singular meandering public space. With this perspective, the proposal is better understood less as a bridge and more as an urban intervention.
