Chihuly Bridge of Glass

Connecting the plaza of the Washington State History Museum to the rooftop of the new Museum of Glass, this pedestrian bridge not only crosses four lanes of traffic and multiple railroad lines, it is a destination in itself. Internationally renowned glass artist Dale Chihuly worked in tandem with the design team to design pavilions filled with his art, making the bridge itself exhibit space. Susan Benz maintained the project cost control, conducted the project meetings and maintained the permanent record. She served as Project Manager, coordinating the design work of the civil engineers, bridge designers, architects and artists through the design development phase of the project.
