Abstrait:

North American bridge design is dominated by a culture of risk aversion and economic constraint. While objectives of safety and efficiency should be the baseline of any project, they are sometimes set as the sole benchmarks for a successful bridge design within the North American context. When the end game is to simply meet the baseline of safety and efficiency, goals related to user experience and aesthetic impacts are often considered superfluous. This paper showcases lessons learned from designing within this context.

Stories from bridge designs showcase the ups and downs of bootstrapping higher design goals into footbridge projects in the Wild West.
