Harley-Davidson Pedestrian Bridge
Architecture can be more than just buildings. Designing space often means recreating space and bridging space. What has been accomplished here is a visual statement that further supports the authenticity of the Harley-Davidson Motor Company. Even before arriving in an office, meeting room, or training center, employees and visitors become acclimated to the environment they are about to enter.
This pedestrian bridge is a unifying element for two large historic brick buildings. The steel and glass of the seventy-five foot bridge, while providing a needed visual contrast to the brick, also reflect and reinforce the mantra of this company – authenticity – as they bridge a heavily utilized road below.
