Last Thursday, the renderings and descriptions were released of the final four designs for the highly-anticipated 11th Street Bridge Park.
Plans have been in the works for over a year to turn three concrete piers into one elevated park connecting Anacostia and Navy Yard. The goal of the project is to create a connecting design with an appeal similar to that of the Providence River Bridge park in Rhode Island, although many compare it to the more well-known High Line in New York City.
We polled our audience on their favorites and got a huge response. (The full set of designs can be viewed here.) So, which design do UrbanTurf readers like the best?
The designs from OLIN/OMA/Arup and Balmori Associates/Cooper, Robertson & Partners/Guy Nordenson Associates ran neck and neck as the top two most popular among those polled, with the OLIN design narrowing edging out the Balmori design. The full poll results are above.
The third most popular option was Anacostia Landing from the team of Wallace Roberts & Todd (WRT) /NEXT Architects/Magnusson Klemencic Associates, and rounding out the four designs was the proposal from Stoss Landscape Urbanism/Howeler + Yoon Architecture/Robert Silman Associates.
The city will be choosing their own favorite in October. If you weren’t able to participate in the UrbanTurf poll, you can still weigh in at the following locations for the next few weeks:
From September 14 – October 11, 2014 at THEARC Gallery – 1901 Mississippi Ave. SE, Washington, DC
From September 24 – October 11, 2014 at: Smithsonian Anacostia Community Museum – 1901 Fort Place SE, Washington, DC and District Architecture Center – 421 7th Street NW, Washington, DC
