Abstract
Taking the shortest possible distance and staying on a leveled surface is an intrinsic part of human nature. The bridge, a powerful invention realizes this human desire. It connects very directly otherwise separate locations and it saves time and energy while crossing the gap between them. Its elevated surface offers us different views to the world.

This project proposes a pedestrian bridge as an elevated surface. The bridge allows people to reach their cars and other destinations across topographic variations, while being sheltered from rain and sun. Its scale and location will designate it as a signature element in the campus plan.
