Text description provided by the architects. The pedestrain bridge was located on the south part of the 2km long Shanhaitian beach park in Rizhao, east China.

Alongside the beach, the key feature of this park is its 50 year old black pine forest and the design challenges are to minimize the construction impact to the natural environment. The curved form was strategically designed to allow the 45 meters long bridge fit into the natural environment while at the same time provide a connection between the city and the beach park.

Special steel structure was designed to fit the complex from at the same time create big span. Parametric design technique has been adopted throughout all design process i.e. form finding, structure optimization, facade penalization and construction documentation, which make sure the complex shape can be "made" by local low technology manufacturer. "Low Technology Parametric Design" is our strategy to face China's current construction situation.
