The project applies contemporary design methods to realize a natural and smooth space, together with antiquated wood, to create and highlight local village culture, to maintain the familiar memory of local villages, but still gently fits in the surrounding urban texture.
The footbridge silhouette is in fact an abstract expression of the traditional eave from local Lingnan buildings. Contemporary parametric design adds to it rationality and logic, fitting its skyline into the local architectural context. Steel structure, with its flexibility and plasticity, realizes the unique shape, which, covered with local timber with a simple and unadorned texture, gently blends in the surrounding architecture context. Meanwhile, the lighting portrays the silhouette, creating an interesting walking experience.
