THREE PIER BRIDGE

Studio Providence LLC, a collaboration between 3six0 Architecture and Friedrich St. Florian Architects, designed a new pedestrian bridge using the existing foundations of the former Interstate 195 Bridge spanning the Providence River.

Setting

A heroically uncovered river and relocated highway in a historic city filled with promise.

Problem/Opportunity

Existing structural piers; two parks separated by a river; a culturally rich but economically challenged city.

Inspiration

The iconic New England fishing pier: a place you want to go to, a way of getting there and a way of going somewhere else.
