Bridging Museum

In collaboration with the leaders of two bi-national border communities, El Paso, Texas, and Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, FR-EE proposed a bridge museum to mark a historical moment in strengthening the connection between Mexico and the United States. The bridge, a monolithic concrete mass, establishes a place that reinforces the bond between superpowers and developing nations.

Set in the heart of the Rio Grande / Rio Bravo Valley, the Bridging Museum acts as both a funnel and a window on the borders. In addition to being a border station, the bridge also contains an active cultural program of exhibition spaces, an auditorium, a library, and a commercial area.

To help promote legal immigration along the border, the bridge is
equipped with modern technology and information design that helps
immigrants find employment opportunities, as well as serving as a
research center for the immigration movement itself.
