A spectacular bridge, gateway to China’s news commercial hub Shizimen Central Business District in Zhuhai, will reflect a double 8 figure, a sign of prosperity in Chinese culture. 10 DESIGN and Buro Happold recently won the design competition and architecture contract for this ambitious project. The winning scheme (300m long over the waterway) proposes an undulating ribbon of structure that wraps around the 6 lane road deck in a continuous sculptural loop form. At low levels the loop cradles the road deck, with the structural ribbon then soaring upwards to create 2 triangulated arch forms.
