Dreamy Draw Pedestrian Bridge
1991-1995, Phoenix, AZ
Vicki Scuri SiteWorks with Carol Shuler Landscape Architects and TYLin Engineers
Sponsored by City of Phoenix, Phoenix Arts Commission and Streets & Transportation
This project features a 311' pedestrian bridge reflecting
the nearby Squaw Peak Mountain Preserve and the Mercury Mine
Elementary School. Its form and red color reference the mountains and
the mercury ore once mined at the site. Featuring tire tread formliners
and speckled red-rock-paint-splattered finish, the bridge mimics a rock
outcropping. A notable feature is the shadow garden, transforming 311'
of span into a patterned walkway, ever changing with the conditions
and angles of the sun. All architectural concepts, form, pattern work,
paint finish, and site design are conceived by Vicki Scuri Siteworks. TY Lin
Engineers provided engineering support documentation.
