The Common Seadragon
With this analysis, I experimented with a number of spaces before I ultimately decided to pursue building a bridge. The concept behind the bridge was to enable people to have a number of elevation-based vantage points on a river that flows east-west, the direction of sunrise and sunset. People could move as close to the water as they wanted, even dipping their hands and feet in a river that would reflect the sunlight. For those who would prefer to just cross the river, a straight and level path would be provided.
