Keys being tossed into the river and never being salvaged represents never letting go of your true happiness....


The uniqueness of the project


The concept of this design roots in: the “convergence” of floating islands, conveying “Every dots and drops of happiness is the convergence of love”. As a result, A 100-meter-long  bridge is filled with graphics of the converging floating islands, The whole space is like a net made of love, sticking to happiness and locking happiness. It makes sure that the ceilings, walls, and grounds are under an systematically designed graphic language with order, and that they are unified under the general visual signals.


The challenge in this case is how to increase as much commercial space as possible on a limited traffic line.


To amplify the function advantage of this bridge, brand new arrangement in terms of inner function settings are equipped as well, A central walkway through the symmetrical bridge holes on both sides ,which exhibits the multi-space system. Including: Daily Leisure function, Festival Gourmet Street function, Cultural Activity function etc. Different time periods, different functions ,The pedestrian passage, which was normally a single-channel traffic function area, will be updated into a multi-function space and bring extensive values to the project.


With the flexible combination of inner public space modules that is up to the demands, the Fortune Bridge serves as an essential element of cohesive power to attract crowd and add up to stronger connections between visitors in the Shopping Boulevard. creating a conversation between minds, and an interaction of sentiments for the consumers.


The open bridge hole gives the interior a different angle of outdoor scenery, while also bringing plenty of natural light to the interior.


As an extended space of the Shopping Boulevard, it bears functions more than what there was when simply served as the bridge itself. This property of suggesting an infinite space beyond, gives more possibility of new commercial patterns to develop.
