Wave | Urban Pathway Pedestrian Bridge Competition

Wave is a new 1,580-ft long pedestrian bridge that would link the main artery of the redeveloped Moynihan Station with the start of the existing High Line in Manhattan’s new Hudson Yards neighborhood. S-shaped in plan, its form is a balanced blend of the dynamic and pragmatic, offering a narrow, direct connection to Moynihan Station on 31st Street before “breaking” around the corner on 9th Avenue and “splashing” onto 30th Street with wider paths and lush, open spaces, ultimately terminating at The Shed. Wave would enhance foot travel by engaging pedestrians in an experience that rewards walking, becoming both the preferred mode of daily transit for local commuters and a draw for tourists by providing a new, more enjoyable pathway from the train station to the High Line.
