Zaha Hadid wins Danjiang Bridge International Competition
After winning the Danjiang Bridge International Competition, Zaha Hadid architects were chosen to design the Danjiang Bridge that would cross over the Tamsui river in Taiwan.
Working alongside bridge specialists Leanhardt, Andrä Und Partner, Hadid's design sits at the mouth of one of Taiwan's largest rivers. This project will help increase activity in the cities neighborhoods and also reduce heavy traffic on local roads.
Engineered to be as thin as possible, the bridge was made so it would not disrupt waterway traffic or obscure views of the beautiful sunset. The single mast system also ensures minimum disruption on the riverbed.
The bridge's design also includes a rail and pedestrian walkway so those that go on foot can enjoy the views on the bridge. It is believed that the crossing will form the world's longest single-tower, asymmetric cable-stayed bridge.
And... That's it!
