Skyscape reimagines the Courtland/McGill Overpass in Downtown Atlanta for a competition entry. The parametrically derived “cloud” form reshapes the harsh bridge edges, creates shading structures for the activated urban space above. The sculptural facade that wraps around the walls of the overpass provides an ethereal metallic “cloud” for motorists traveling below. On the street level the structures create canopies for public park space that incorporates a permanent exhibition of folk-art.
The design was one of two finalists.
