Location: Dubai, UAE
The 80m long bridge functioned as a direct pedestrian crossing between a hotel and a financial center over a busy roadway.
The bridge needed to be wide enough for a golf cart and two people on either side of the cart, a maximum of 4.5m clear inside between railings. The formal solution of the design provided solar shading and wind mitigation. The bridge required lighting and signage, having direct access form the public way to both sides of the road via an elevator and stair. Its curvalinear plan was developed responding to the orientation and location of the contact points with the connecting buildings.
