Wind Bridge is a system of integrated metal panels along the pedestrian bridge connecting a new busway station to Union Station and Patsaouras Transit Plaza.
This artist team designed a series of six bus passenger waiting areas which reference the social and natural history of the site and incorporate ideas about shelter, movement, evolution and change.
This artist team worked with project architects to form seating areas, planter walls and fountains which together form an inviting corner park.
Hand-painted and glazed ceramic tile on the undersurfaces of the bridges provide the illusion of lacy tree branches overhead, while cast relief tiles feature a variety of native birds and animals which might once have inhabited this spot.
Michael Amescua’s decorative and functional art elements grace several areas throughout the entry to Metro Headquarters and the Patsaouras Bus Plaza.
