Wood and urban railway stations are not terms that most people think of together. Add a long span pedestrian bridge and you’ve three fascinating projects that make this Canadian video well worth watching.


This Canadian video shows wood solutions in structural design and transportation. It features the Brentwood Town Centre Station, Lansdowne Station and the Kingsway Pedestrian Bridge. Perkins+Will (architects) and Fast & Epp (engineers) take us through their journey for these public spaces, from concept to design to finished structure.

Along the way they discuss some of the advantages of wood, including reducing the carbon footprint of the built structure, durability and providing a welcoming user environment.
