in the outskirts foshan city, china, architecture firm ADARC associates and the government worked together to develop a pedestrian bridge spanning across a highway. as urban development continues to grow at a rapid pace in china, road networks are being constructed into the countryside- damaging the natural environment and rural life. the project – promoted by the government – is aimed to provide the villagers a scenic and safe route across the busy road, and at the same time improve the walking system. the convenient footbridge spans 60 meters; designed with a wide pathway, gentle incline and platform levels for rest.built for lasting vitality, the design concept embodies old and new- blending local customs with modern architectural ideas. during the development, contemporary techniques were used in construction and expressed by the simple wooden frame supported by malleable steel. creating a ‘local feeling’- the form of the bridge is an abstract expression of the rooftops and eves of the traditional lingnam village buildings.as people journey through the corridor, the house shaped cross sections form a repetition, while gradually abstracting- deepening the perspective and depth of the route. with aims to strengthen social ties between the locals, people will hopefully stop on the bridge to interact and reflect on the surrounding landscape.
