Bridge Lines

Philadelphia, PA

B’ridge Lines is a proposal for a site-specific installation inside the abandoned Fairmount Station, in Philadelphia.

The installation itself would be tethered between existing architectural elements to share history and the infrastructural beauty of the Broad Ridge Spur (BRS) subway line in an on-site / community context. The resultant woven canopy will became a catalyst for a unique type of limited public gathering and sharing experience.

“…abandoned subway stations are some of the most character rich and historically significant urban spaces that cities have to offer…but the subterranean stigma and bureaucratic complexity behind permitted access to the spaces often renders them completely inaccessible to most members of the general public”

B’ridge Lines is a proposal in collaboration with the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority and Hidden City Philadelphia.
