Future100: Eve Tobey Responds to the Bay Area’s Unique Challenges
But perhaps her most ambitious—and most radical—undertaking is the Bridge of Nymphs, a speculative project in which Tobey and collaborators, including fellow Future100 awardee David Rico-Gomez, re-envisioned the iconic San Francisco–Oakland Bay Bridge as a cicada colony. Aiming to reduce carbon emissions from livestock, the design includes a multilayer tubular structure that wraps around the bridge, creating an urban insect farm that could provide the city with a more sustainable protein source. Through such innovative and fearless designs, Tobey challenges us to consider how our existing landscapes can be reconfigured in new ways to address our most urgent problems.
