Brooklyn Bridge Project
Spend a week engaged in an interdisciplinary exploration of an iconic structure. Create a product — a poem, a calculus equation, a short film or something entirely different — that expresses your understanding of the Brooklyn Bridge using the medium of your choice.
- Explore the cultural, historical and political implications of the Brooklyn Bridge through eight diverse seminars
- Discover the intricacies of the bridge during multiple CITYtrips
- Design your understanding of the Brooklyn Bridge for CITYterm’s Exhibition Night
- View the work of others during Exhibition Night to deepen your understanding
When walking along the Brooklyn Bridge, I thought it would be hard to capture everything I saw and felt in one cohesive project. But when I got started, it was just like a chain, each link connected one by one until it all became clear to me.
