public transport authority pedestrian bridge 3

The third and final pedestrian bridge continues the lucid quality developed in the second proposal and then relocated under the western edge of the central perth train station. The role of the bridge is expanded to connect train platforms, bridge the city across to the Perth Cultural Centre and provide protection to the main station from strong wind, sun and rain. In our proposal the notion of the bridge is transformed to provide a public city square. This is achieved through a meandering platform that encourages ad-hoc meetings, moments to ponder, sit and rest while allowing the busy commuter to make the last minute dash for the departing train.
