Arch Duet is an individual work submitted to the 2010 ENYA International Ideas Competition. Being listed on Jury’s Selection, it was exhibited at the Center for Architecture in New York and published as a book in 2011
Arch of the High Bridge (1848) was a primary structure for lifting an upper plate higher from the waterfront level to carry water and people horizontally between Manhattan and the Bronx. An inverted arch of a new structure (2010) aims to put networked cultural programs inside and connect the waterfront with bridge’s upper level vertically through various routes. Keeping spacing between each other, the two arch structures make consonance based on assonance. Also, connected at several points, the flow of collected rainwater and cultural activities of people keep a continuous loop through the two bodies.
