The Bridge gazebo on the Vermont Law School campus was a humble, intimate piece of site furniture that sat as a sculptural object in the landscape. Its design evoked the classic Vermont covered bridge, but rather than facilitating transport, it invited individuals to stop and quietly reflect on their place in the natural environment. It was an expression of material, craft and assembly, executed as a simple shelter from the elements
The gazebo was awarded the 2006 AIA Vermont Excellence in Architecture Design Award for a Small Project.
Tragically, this project perished in the floods of Tropical Storm Irene in October 2011. A video of its being carried off by the White River can be seen on this TruexCullins Blog post.Photos by Westphalen Photography
