As the main lead into Shopping Boulevard, the bridge represents the architect’s hope of providing the  youngsters with emotional support. It is thus defined as “the Fortune Bridge”. The bridge of fortune locks onto your happiness! When visitors arrive here, they would write down their names and wishes on their own lock, and attach it to the Special rail. Keys being tossed into the river and never being salvaged represents never letting go of your true happiness....

The uniqueness of the project
The concept of this design roots in the “convergence” of floating islands, conveying “Every dots and drop of happiness is the convergence of love”. As a result, A 100-meter-long  bridge is filled with graphics of the converging floating islands, the whole space is like a net made of love, sticking to happiness and locking happiness. It makes sure that the ceilings, walls, and grounds are under a systematically designed graphic language with the order, and that they are unified under the general visual signals.
