Project Profile: Beehive Bridge

The “Beehive Bridge” is a 265-foot-long highway overpass in the city of New Britain, Connecticut, connecting the two parts of the city that are divided by a highway. Svigals + Partner created a design scheme for a pedestrian-friendly streetscape with an abstract take on the “beehive” theme that has long been associated with New Britain—it features colorful translucent panels in an abstract honeycomb pattern that separate the overpass visually from the highway below

Project Profile: Jewel Changi Airport

Jewel Changi Airport is a new, 1.4 million-square-foot mixed-use hub and lifestyle destination at Singapore’s Changi Airport, one of the world’s busiest aviation facilities. The project opened this spring and has drawn acclaim for its unique design, highlighted by the world’s tallest indoor waterfall and a translucent, ovoid-shaped gridshell roof spanning 650 feet (200 meters) across. The building combines retail, restaurants, a hotel, and expansive indoor garden and leisure facilities, all publicly accessible and linked to airport terminals and Singapore’s public transit.

Cristobal Correa, Principal of Structures at BuroHappold, who is the project director of Jewel Changi Airport describes the implementation of AEC technology on this project.
