Bridge – a contextual event

Villem Tomiste

In the second PRS I will explore my community of practice through the lens of the “streets”. I will analyse one street type — the bridges — and explain through this how I observe and practice and what the role of my community of practice is in this. A contemporary bridge serves the energy that is vital for the survival of the contemporary city — the energy of a curious city dweller. The flaneur, thanks to slower tempo, brings the bridge back its functional diversity. Todays bridges have been designed as unprecedented spatial phenomena to experience time, views, light or even taste. I claim that a bridge is a contextual event.
