UVA Architecture Students to Unveil Designs for Belmont Bridge
University of Virginia architecture students will unveil their designs for a new Belmont Bridge in Charlottesville Saturday. A
bout 30 teams have been working around the clock to enter their designs in project Gait-Way. It's a design competition created by the community for Charlottesville's Belmont Bridge replacement project.
Brian Wimer is the contest organizer and said he is looking forward to seeing the students' models.
"They haven't yet become so dulled by urban planning and VDOT and all these things to say all we can do is a road that's made of asphalt. They're still dreaming," Wimer said.
The students' designs will be on display at the Music Resource Center in Charlottesville, Saturday at from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Then all design entries can be viewed at City Space on the Downtown Mall beginning February 13th. They will be judged February 19th.
