Magical design + execution from NEXT Architects!
Write-up from designboom.
designed with recreational, ecological, and touristic activities in mind, the project forms an important component of the region’s public space. the bridge connects the road, the river banks, and the neighboring park at different heights — as well as the interconnections between them. the scheme’s final appearance is the result of knotting these routes together. ‘the shape of the lucky knot was inspired by the principle of the mobius ring, as well as by the chinese knotting art,’ explains john van de water, partner at NEXT architects beijing. ‘in the ancient decorative chinese folk art, the knot symbolizes luck and prosperity.’
