NEXT architects has been awarded first prize in an international competition to design a pedestrian bridge for Meixi Lake in Changsha. Designed to be “more than just a connection,” the footbridge will serve as a key public space for a new lake district within the Dragon King Harbor River development. Recreational, ecological and touristic programs will be integrated into the 150 meter-long, 24 meter-high elevated parkway. 

“The construction, with the intersecting connections, is based on the principal of the Möbius ring,” states Michel Schreinemachers. “On the other hand, it refers to a Chinese knot that comes from an ancient decorative Chinese folk art,” adds John van de Water. 

Construction is scheduled for 2014.
