This competition-winning design for a three-span beam bridge over the Huangpu River aims to bring public access to the previously industrial Huangpu riverbanks. As Shanghai grows, new residential and commercial developments have revitalized the riverfront along this area of the West Bund, creating a demand for new areas devoted to parks, culture, and recreation. sbp’s design for the Dianpu Bridge helps facilitate this pedestrian-friendly development with a crossing that integrates all pedestrian and traffic functions, including a roadway and light rail tracks. The bridge’s beam shape follows the bending-moment diagram, while outer walkways are arranged with the swing of the bridge creating a unique crossing experience. In addition, a second suspended walkway creates a covered and barrier-free connection for pedestrians and cyclists.
