Session 2C: Skybridges: What are the Opportunities?

Panel Discussion

No longer confined to the utilitarian connection of buildings over a busy street, skybridges are emerging as a critical urban habitat in their own right. This panel explores the advancements skybridges have achieved in recent years as meaningful connectors of residential, corporate and academic communities, and the potential for more substantial development in the near future.
