Conference paper

How do we design a pedestrian bridge for a pleasant human experience? To answer this question, This paper focuses on human interaction with and on bridges, and investigates how people use bridges and bridge elements by analysing visual data from social media. This set of data helps to understand different groups of individuals, their needs, values, and abilities to use bridge elements differently.  This paper unfolds the potential of pedestrian bridges as a new form of open public spaces that will be a part of the pedestrian network for both targeted and purposeless movements. The article aims to create a fundamentally new design framework that will pioneer the experiential design of bridges and unfold their unique opportunities as a place for urban experiences and social interactions.
