Decorative glass pedestrian bridge creates dramatic arena entrance

An all-glass elevated pedestrian walkway in Louisville, Ky., opened in fall 2010, connecting the Galt House Hotel & Suites and the new KFC Yum! Center arena. Kenneth F. von Roenn Jr., president and lead designer of Architectural Glass Art, Louisville, designed the pedway. It features a glass roof, glass walls and art glass trusses. The pedway is illuminated internally with LED lights at the base of each truss, which are activated by the movement of pedestrians.
