West Glebe Bridge
2021-2023, Alexandria, VA
Vicki Scuri SiteWorks with Alexandr Polzin
Sponsored by Arlington County
This project is inspired by its site, Four Mile Run and the diverse community in this emerging neighborhood, transitioning from industrial to urban. The choice of materials and motifs reflects the natural terrain, the movement of water, the passage of people: strolling, bicycling, and driving by the site. The West Glebe Street bridge includes artistic enhancements on the concrete bridge rails and metal railings. The barriers have a flowing patterning on both sides, suggesting water. This pattern is referenced by cut metal railings on the bridge. Under the bridge, paint on the walls along the river trail and programmable LED lighting enhance the pedestrian experience day and night.
