Beyond a Raven stadium and above the Westport light rail station lies a majestic collection of public spaces around the northwestern tip of the Patapsco River's Middle Branch. Here a transit network spans a waterfront amalgam of voids, lost spaces, paths, pauses and vistas. Traversed by floating zones and directional flow, this spectacular gateway to Baltimore reveals a shimmering parallax of invisible sites.

 

NPS-MBX Tours

Participants are invited to explore the Middle Branch Crossing through three modes of transit: car, bicycle and light rail. Sweeping back and forth across the I-95/I-395 interchange, the car tour will provide breathtaking zoomscapes of the water below and city beyond. At a slower pace, the bicycle tour will navigate sites of pause south of the stadium, before joining the Gwynns Falls Trail as it skirts the vistas of the Middle Branch's western shore. Heading farther south, the light rail tour will glide over fluid dynamics and unseen fields before culminating in an excursion of radical pedestrianism.
