You may recall the Commercial Street bridge by the Civic Center, whose plans he checked, but who did not seem to be responsible for the design.

There's a lot of talk about bridges these days, some of it contentious, but here's an opportunity for delight and maybe even a little wonder. So check out the lecture!
