San Francisco-based landscape architects SURFACEDESIGN, INC. proposed an overlook and viewing platform for a new San Francisco waterfront park created from a series of bridge trusses and other elements. Their project will celebrate the historic bridge "by re-purposing salvaged steel from the original 1936 Eastern span of the Bay Bridge into new landscape features including an overlook and observation platform that will directly connect users to views of the Bay Bridge; the landscape itself will be a vehicle for displaying the cultural and industrial narratives of the construction of the bridge. Park users will be able to engage with the re-purposed steel and learn about the history of the Bridge through a series of interactive exhibits, employing an integrative approach to interpretation, the landscape itself will become a tool for understanding and marking change."
