Pedestrian Bridges: 9 great examples of Landscape Design

Pedestrian bridges are nowadays always more often an occasion to design an element that combines the need for functionality a perfect integration with the landscape. 

Sometimes it means that these pedestrian bridges hide themselves – with curves, materials and others expedients – as happened with the Helix bridge (perfectly internet in the urban landscape of the Marina Bay) or with Moses Bridge. And sometimes it means that they act in absolute contraposition with the surrounding nature. Using, for example, the colour (red) or a material (concrete).

The way to design pedestrian bridges are a lot, and the best one, as always, depends by various factors. Here a series of projects collected on the web. If you are interested in anyone of them, click on the image or on the title!
