The Bridge and The Box

Dawson State Jail, the abandoned prison facility since 2012 in Dallas, stands prominently with an expansive vacant area before it, facing Trinity Park from a distance. When floods encroach, the park ceases to exist, leaving the bridge as the sole conduit linking the east and west. In this context, the bridge serves a singular purpose as a transportation artery, highlighting the jail’s significance. As the primary gateway and initial impression of the city of Dallas, it exudes an aura of solidity, density, and proximity.

Dallas is a city where pedestrian activity on the streets is relatively scarce, with individuals typically venturing out with specific destinations in mind. Our observations reveal that music and parks hold tremendous allure, particularly for Dallas residents. The music scene in Dallas vividly reflects the city’s growth and evolution, spanning from soulful blues to punk rock and, more recently, hip-hop. Music is undeniably ingrained in the city’s cultural fabric, akin to a genetic imprint.

Given the aforementioned considerations, the bridge’s design must accommodate inhabitation, facilitate safe passage during flooding events, and provide a space for musical expression.
