Wei Wu Ying Bicycle & Pedestrian Bridge

Kaohsiung, Taiwan

This 1.5 kilometer award-winning bridge deign was created as a link for pedestrians and cyclists from the MRT transit station across two major highways to the Wei Wu Ying Metropolitan Park and the new Center for the Arts. The highlight of the system is a cable-stayed bridge across Zhongzheng Road which is designed as a lightweight, low-profile Silver Ribbon that snakes through the district, terminating at the park. As the bridge lowers into the park, it splits into two fingers— one for cyclists, one for pedestrians— and unfolds to become a new plaza space within the existing park.
