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.’
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
