The Northern Ave Bridge in Boston has served as an iconic symbol of the city’s industrial history since 1908. More than a hundred years of exposure to the salt water has caused the bridge to deteriorate significantly over the years and the bridge will soon be torn down and replaced. Over the last few months the City of Boston and the Boston Society of Architects have been accepting ideas from the public to create a new plan for the space. I came across the list of submissions today and it’s made me really excited to see what will become of this downtown landmark. Personally I am leaning toward the public gallery concept (rendering below) but there are a lot of great suggestions.
