The University of North Carolina at Greensboro prides itself in being a campus rich with landscape and outdoor communal spaces. In the warmer months and sunny days students can be found sitting on the benches, steps, and grass. They gather, they read, they observe. Though not without quality outdoor spaces, the school could use a new one, different from any other.

The new pedestrian bridge crosses at the intersection of college avenue and spring garden; a densely traveled area. High above the bustling street lies, not only a means of safely crossing, but more importantly, a new destination spot. It provides students with more places to sit with a fresh perspective of their surroundings.

The bridge will provide students an outdoor gathering space able to accommodate every comfort or way of seating. From oversized steps to tables and benches, the bridge allows the students to observe the campus from a new vantage point. From ground level to feet above the road, the students will read the life around them
