Rainbow Bridge

SPF:architects en tant que Architectes.

When the City of Long Beach first set out to build this link, they had a very rudimentary, elevated sidewalk in mind. For them, the goal was simple: offer a public connection between two banner venues, the convention and performing arts centers. SPF:a, however, felt the location needed an experience, not just a concrete traverse. Working within the city’s budget, SPF:a employed a standard Caltrans bridge template, innovating the top frame with a wave-inspired canopy. This piece, which spans 604 feet (the bridge length), consists of 76 custom-welded steel ribs, each almost entirely hand-bent by city steelworkers without the use of sophisticated technology. A custom-designed system of 3500 color-changing LED nodes by Carl Stahl Architektur is also rigged to the frame like a ship’s net and can be left static as a bioluminescent lightscape or programmed to complement music and performances—either option creating a new public space for respire and revelry.
