Working closely with TY Lin International and the City of Redding, MacDonald Architects provided architectural services for the Cypress Bridge in Redding, California.

In close communication with engineers and local government officials, MacDonald Architects approached the aesthetic design of this bridge to develop a new gateway structure for the city which proved to be compatible with the newly constructed City Hall.

MacDonald Architects developed several design schemes featuring multiple concepts that included waterfall designs, belvedere options, a tower scheme, as well as an alternate spandrel-scheme.

The aesthetics of the overall structure were designed to harmonize with the family of existing bridge structures in the Redding River Valley.
