LANDSCAPE BRIDGES. Translation; originally published in Chinese by Tianjin Ifengspace Media Co., Ltd, 2014. Bansheer Graphic Books, Singapore, 2014. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Gingko Press Inc., Berkeley, 2016. 256 pp. with 534 ills. (428 col.). 29 x 24 cm. ISBN 9789810910075 In English.
Publisher's description: Bridges are at once a departure and an arrival, an opportunity to cross over to a new land and begin again. Perhaps that is why they are imbued with such magic, stirring our imagination through the possibilities of renewal as well as their myriad forms. Landscape Bridges showcases some of the most innovative designs of recent years for pedestrian and bicycle bridges and elevated footpaths. Whether the bridges span water, earth, road or vegetation, many of the same design challenges apply. These challenges are met and vanquished by these spectacular and award-winning designs. While categorized by main material component iron, wood and hybrid the permutations of form are endless, from the highly organic or sinuous, to modern geometric and linear forms. Some connect parks and public spaces, others residential and commercial zones. The Alexandra Arch & Forest Walk in Singapore allows pedestrians to walk among the treetops, while the Moses Bridge in the Netherlands literally parts the water ahead of its visitors. Prepare to be enthralled.
