Our proposal, called the Inhabited Bridge, aims to reclaim the streets for the people through pedestrianised bridge-like structures that encourage people to slow down and appreciate their surroundings.

These structures act as a form of conservatory and introduce nature into the cityscape. They are elevated so they are separated from cars.

Slow motion is crucial to health and wellbeing, as it encourages people to live in the moment. We see this form of movement as a way to gather the community and combat loneliness in the vital city.
