Poll of the Week: Inspiration from St. Louis

The
elevated sections of Route 5 and the I-190 are thought to be a scar on the
city as well as a barrier to the waterfront.  

The underside of the I-190 downtown is particularly barren, filthy
and at best is used for surface parking. 

And so
we were inspired by this blogspot post to show you the Eads Bridge’s flanks,
offering an alternative design in St. Louis.  The masonry understory of
the circa-1874 bridge approaches may be intrusive, but they are aesthetically
more appealing than seen in downtown Buffalo.  Could a similar design work
in Buffalo?  If so, where?
