IN SITU is a design series that brings the conversation out of the lecture theatre and into the real world.
Beautiful artwork paired with beautiful downtown views – the tawatinâ bridge is a must see! The bridge opened in December 2021 and is the Valley Line’s largest bridge at 260 metres long. Since the onset of the project in 2011 DIALOG has been leading the Sustainable Urban Integration (SUI), Facilities and Structures scopes as part of ConnectEd Transit Partnership (CTP), primed by AECOM with the other main consultants being ISL, Hatch, Mott MacDonald, Thurber, GEC Architecture and Spencer Environmental.
“tawatinâ” is a Cree term for “big valley” – a fitting name for this river crossing in North America’s largest urban parkland. The bridge also boasts over 500 pieces of artwork from Métis artist David Garneau. The art panels reflect the local landscape, culture, stories, histories and knowledge of the Indigenous peoples of this region.
