Curtis Park Bridge, Sacramento CA: Pedestrian Bridge

Curtis Park Bridge, Sacramento CA: Pedestrian Bridge

Kuchman Architects task for this $11 million pedestrian bridge designed by Drake Haglan Associates was to develop the aesthetics. We worked together with landscape architect Callander Associates, engineers, lighting designers, metal craftsman, bronze sculptors and others to integrate materials and forms that evolved from functional requirements. The bridge will cross the Southern Pacific Railroad tracks and light rail line to connect the new Curtis Park Village, along with Curtis Park and Oak Park with Sacramento City College to the west.  A considerably more conservative version of the bridge was completed in Spring of 2016.
