Project Description

FROM THE ARCHITECTS:

Located in downtown Dallas, the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge is a major component of the city's urban revitalization efforts, connecting Dallas' two riverbanks for easy passage between the downtown area and the rapidly revitalizing neighborhoods of West Dallas.
When the Dallas City Council commissioned Santiago Calatrava to design a signature bridge across the Trinity River in 2002, he saw it as an opportunity to rething the city's riverfront. In order to celebrate the Trinity River and highlight its enormous capacity to bring new development to Dallas, Calatrava devised a plan to transform the area into a central gathering place; effectively pumping life back into the river.
