BNMC Bridge by Architectural Resources

Design Brief

The Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus is a regional center that has transformed a neighborhood into the home of one of the world's premier medical education, research and treatment campuses. A|r collaborated with The University at Buffalo, the Hauptman Woodward Institute, and Roswell Park Cancer Institute to design and construct a 100 foot long pedestrian bridge spanning over the primary corridor of the campus. The bridge design aesthetically marries the buildings it connects by responding to the form and material of adjoining facades while establishing the bridge's architectural identity. The transparent structure is composed of full height glass walls joined seamlessly together. The glass walls also extend above the top of the bridge to visually dematerialize the roof. These two design features contribute to both the integration of the buildings and the bridge while producing the visual weightlessness of the structure.
