Our General Manager, Diane Harwood, in San Francisco has been following the final stages of the rebuilding of the Bay Bridge. On the BLDGblog, Bay Area architects Ronald Rael and Virginia San Fratello have called for stabilizing the disused – and soon to be entirely dismantled – portion of the Bay Bridge. They propose turning it into a pedestrianized urban park and outdoor sports attraction. As our urban centres bulge with an ever-increasing population, the re-purposing of existing, heavy-load bearing structures becomes a vital skill when dealing with the cataclysmic change of our moving world.
On a lighter note, Diane has also been enjoying this hyper-American collection of chrome logos.
