The proposed steel pedestrian bridge in the Chinese mega city Changsha will be 185 metres long and 24 metres high.
The bridge is a key project in developing the area’s public space, and was designed with recreational, ecological and tourist activities in mind.
The bridge connects multiple levels at different heights (the river banks, the road, the higher-placed park as well as the interconnections between them). The final shape of the bridge is the result of - literally and metaphorically - knotting all these routes together.
The bridge will offer a spectacular view of the river, Meixi Lake, the city of Changsha and the surrounding mountain range. With its LED light arrays, the bridge is set to become a landmark attraction in the route that traces the path of the Dragon King Harbour River.
