Bridges are perhaps the most invisible form of public architecture.
Well, I think everybody's a little jealous of the Vietnam Wall, even people from wars that already have good monuments. You have a monument like the Wall and nobody ever forgets your war, you can bet on that.
War is grounded in the notion of triumph and defeat. It is zero-sum.
It is not at all clear how much the media influences public opinion and how much public opinion influences the media.
Bridges become frames for looking at the world around us.
