Jaw Drop: Emory's new Marble Clad Brumley Bridge is a Drive-Thru

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.

If there is a grand opening / ribbon cutting, let's go.

  1. Very Emory's modern look (like their old look, too). And bridges are just cool, plain and simple, but love it when they're done well.

    There's a new bridge coming to Midtown and the plans look pretty amazing. Mayor Reed presented it in last week's Midtown Alliance annual meeting. Can hardly wait!
