Big Month for the 11th Street Bridge Park

We're barely into the second month of 2014, but we've already had busy year!
Remember our successful December 7 community design meetings that the Washington Post wrote about? Based on that feedback, the talented engineers at the software company Autodesk created a visualization of the future 11th Street Bridge Park and even incorporated some of the community generated concepts. While the final design will look much different as we go through a nation-wide design competition (this rendering shows a simple flat span) this fly through video dramatically captures size, scale and location.
And last week, we were invited to sit down with public radio's Kojo Nnamdi and Washington Post architecture columnist Roger Lewis for a talk about urban spaces broadcast live on WAMU. In case you missed it, we've included the link below. Please share with your friends, neighbors and co-workers!
We are hard at work on the design competition, building websites (www.bridgepark.org to launch in late February), submitting grants to foundations across the U.S. and selecting a jury and design oversight committee who will help shape the project. More news on the competition in our next update.
Finally, we're working to match the last $20,000 of a generous $100,000 challenge grant we received. Consider making a tax-deductible gift today. With your continued support, 2014 will be an amazing year for the 11th Street Bridge Park!

 

Using state of the art software, engineers at Autodesk created this visualization of where the future 11th Street Bridge Park will sit across the Anacostia River.

WAMU's Kojo Nnamdi and Washington Post's "Shaping the City" columnist Roger Lewis discuss the 11th Street Bridge Park on the Kojo Nnamdi Show (listen for us around minute 19.)
