From the architect. Glass Bridge as Haizuka Earthworks Projects

This project is located at Haizuka dam construction area and as one of Haizuka Earthworks Projects*. We are commissioned from Mirasaka town, Hiroshima prefecture, Japan to design guardrail and pavement for the newly large bridge over the dam lake in collaboration with local people.

Site Plan

As a result, we put over 190 sheets of glass panel(300×1800mm) to the outside of guardrail. Furthermore, collaborating with Japanese artist, Hiroshi Fuji, we design the glass panel as an Encyclopedia of living things in haizuka dam area. Therefore, "Glass bridge" is a project as landscape design, as a small museum, as a communication art, and as an architecture.

I think that this is extremely dangerous for birds, and should not have been permitted to be built without regard for their safety. If there has been any consideration of this problem, I would like to see it in the literature about the installation.
