Dave Dahl (M. Arch '11) and Nicole Lew (M. Arch '11) recently placed first in the Transforming Seattle's 520 Floating Bridge International Design Competition. The competition challenged entrants to envision new and innovative reuse strategies. The focus was on the 520 bridge which will be decommissioned in 2014 due to high maintenance costs, damage, and the need for additional lanes. Dahl and Lew's project rescues the concrete pontoons to reclaim the South Park riverfront as a productive, healing, and community-centered landscape. To see more details of their project click here.
