Our project intends to discuss the dynamic intimacy between bridge and water in the context of Amstel River. Rather than thinking of a bridge as a connector and passage between two points, we reimagine it to be a focal point and an attractor in the middle of the river where the bridge touches water with ever changing volume as the water level rises and descends through time, creating an event space along with seasons change and served as a structural support for the bridge. The topographical urban landscape is then embedded along this center and spread out to both side of river that joints pedestrian street. We believe that in this way art is significantly engaged in constant open interaction with public and the bridge functions as an extension from Hermitage museum. Multiple forms of joining art and collective events including water-sculpture park, performance amphitheater and ice-skating rink can occur in all four seasons.
