Zaha Hadid Architects has completed a bridge that goes across China’s Jiangxi River, and provides essential travel routes across the country’s Southern border.
The Jiangxi River flows across Yushan County, moving into Central China’s Poyang Lake. Zaha Hadid Architects’ Jiangxi River Bridge, the first in a series of projects through Chengdu’s West Line Road, measures 295 meters long, and is crafted with curved steel arches.
Horizontal baselines complete the structure with flattened perimeters, while stabilizing wires brace against strong winds.
Beyond its aesthetic design, the the architectural structure is intended to makes on-road travel swift and easy, extending onto opposite river banks and creating road, cycle, and pedestrian walkways.
