More Than Just a Bridge - Reprised
image"It's a city of ravines. Remnants of wilderness have been left behind. Through these great sunken gardens you can traverse the city beneath the streets, look up to the floating neighbourhoods, houses built in the treetops. It's a city of valleys spanned by bridges."
(Anne Michaels - Fugitive Pieces, writing about Toronto)


Arterial roads intersect with Toronto's natural system of ravines. Our proposal for "Living Bridges" is designed to celebrate these intersections, in conjunction with intensified redevelopment along Toronto's main streets. At these points, inhabited bridges over the natural valley topography provide intense nodal connections - horizontal continuity and vertical access.
