“Salmon Bone Bridge” study model

This is a study model of the “Salmon Bone Bridge” which is composed of steel and wood. Bringing the underwater experience to land, the forms of the bridge abstractly refer to the skeletal structure of a fish. The bridge decking is composed of recycled cedar timbers placed in a herringbone pattern. As part of Seattle’s Millennium Project and Urban Creeks Legacy, this 5-acre creek restoration provides improved fish passage, drainage, and habitat. It also offers a sequence of outdoor rooms that allows people to discover the creek environment while protecting wildlife habitat. Both the “Salmon Bone Bridge” and “Dragonfly Garden” are inspired by the species that inhabit the site and illuminate the wonders of the watershed.
