A Bridge to a View:
helix 67

St. Helen’s Island in Montreal, Quebec is home to the international exhibition held in 1967, known as Expo 67. The event featured many artistic sculptures, some of which still remain today. Located on the south end of the island, () seeks to expand restoration efforts to a forgotten and unused area. Now the 55th anniversary of Expo 67, the bridge takes inspiration from the artistic history of the exhibition and pays homage to the sculptures standing on the island today. It connects to a current trail, allowing for visitors to travel across swan lake with ease to the other side of the trail. The chain-link fence and steel-grate path create transparency throughout the entire path, allowing for views across swan lake to the Montreal Hemisphere.
