I'd seen the steel structure go up and thought, "Cool, a bridge." But university building is so common who pays attention?
So on this gloomy Saturday morning I was driving to Jonathan LaCross's Shutze Lecture. I turned down Haygood Drive in front of Druid Hills High School.
THEY COVERED THE BRIDGE WITH MARBLE!! I hope it's Georgia marble, a theme for Emory's buildings. By by Zimmer Gunsul Frasca Architects LLP (ZGF).
"A working bridge connecting a new Health Sciences Research Building to the Emory-Children's Center will be named in memory of George W. Brumley, MD." - Emory University News July 28, 2011
I guess folks will work on the bridge. That sounds good to me.
The clerestory look and overhanging roof in the building to the left is a theme for Emory's more modern buildings.
See it when you are in the neighborhood. It's a drive-through.
