Pvilion collaborated with Figg Bridge Engineers to design, fabricate, and install the first solar-powered pedestrian bridge in the world.
The bridge was completed in early June, and now connects the Cascade Park and Capital Trail in Tallahassee, Florida. As a landmark, the solar bridge is at the forefront of Tallahassee’s economic growth. The bridge was engineered to serve a critical function beautifully and sustainably.
Pvilion and Figg partnered to engineer state-of-the art infrastructure; Pvilion designed the solar canopy to harvest solar energy and light Cascades Park, and Figg designed the bridge. The canopy was manufactured in Pvilion’s Brooklyn studio.
