          In this age of constant movement and connectedness, technology and pervasive distraction, moments of stillness are becoming increasingly rare. Stillness of mind and body allow us to put our lives into perspective, place ourselves within the systems we are apart of, and help us to discover what we truly care about. Architecture has the ability to foster stillness through the environments we create and the atmospheres which manifest within them. As a byproduct of urban infrastructure, we have unintentionally created these spaces of stillness under our bridges. Though we are often numb to the atmospheres that surround us, here, the intervention of civic space for us to acknowledge and dwell within these structures, can make their inherent quality of stillness known.
