SYNAPSE: 2006 Venecia Bridge Competition

The bridge becomes a connective tissue in a network of historical and cultural destinations.  At the crossroads of academia and everyday life, it signifies the suspended moment between perception and cognition, contemplation & action. 

Motion and fluidity permeate the design, as the exhibition spaces are embedded within the sinewy circulation routes, which bypass and intersect each other as they span the canal.  These tendons are fluid, transparent and tense, while the exhibition and study areas provide room for pause--suspended, yet solid and introspective.
