Every day while crossing the river we don`t even register how the rythmical urban environment is split in a long pause. Series of houses, trees, signs, and traffic lights is replaced by meditative emptiness. Fog and horizon, the distant cloudy sky and the silhouette of the city. You can finally see what is the weather today, what is happing in the sky.
Bridges are tremendously long and our time perception is relative. The space above us and above the bridge is huge. However there is also a space under the bridge. This space is not as high but is just as long. What kind of place is it? What do we know about it? Almost nothing. This is the hidden place of the city, the recondite resource. When have you been under the bridge last time? What were you doing there?
In general, the idea of your project is anything you`d add to the city, using such unusual, little cosmic place, like space under the bridge.
