Möbius ring-inspired bridge to be built in China

Architectural firm Next has been awarded first prize in a competition to design a bridge to span a river within the town of Meixi Lake in China, for its Möbius strip inspired design. Meixi Lake — next to Changsha in the Hunan province — is an experiment in urban planning. The 6.5 million square metre city development has been designed from scratch by architectural firm Kohn Pederson Fox Associates and centres around a manmade lake. Within Meixi is found an area called Dragon King Harbour River. It is here where Next’s bridge will be built. The pedestrian bridge is 150 metres across and 24 metres high, spanning the river via a number of different spaghetti-esque pathways at different heights. “The construction with the intersecting connections is based on the principal of the Möbius ring,” explains architect Michel Schreinemachers. “On the other hand it refers to a Chinese knot that comes from an ancient decorative Chinese folk art,” adds colleague John van de Water.
