2013-11-01 NEXT WINS INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION PEDESTRIAN BRIDGE, CHANGSHA MEIXI LAKE

NEXT architects is awarded a first prize in an international competition in Meixi Lake besides Changsha capital of Hunan province in China. NEXT designed a bridge that is more than just a connection.  The pedestrian bridge is one of the key projects within the Dragon King Harbor River development part of the vast development of the new lake district. Construction is scheduled for next year.

The bridge is the key project for the development of the public space of the river park with recreational, ecological and touristic program. “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.

With a total span of more than 150 meter and 24 meters high, the bridge connects a diversity of routings on different heights. The iconic appearance contributes to the developing identity of the area and with its lighting contributes to the whole light routing along the river. It provides both a view on the Dragon King Harbor River as well as Meixi Lake, Changsha and it surrounding mountains.

Just like the old thermionic valve radios  had an "A" and "B" batteries in them. This nomenclature carried over to transistors which made it hard to understand how a transistor work. But that was all cleared up when I did the electronic phase of my Aircraft Electrician course!
