Pioneer Bridge Design created for new start-up area in Xiong’an, China

Chapman Taylor has produced a “Pioneer Bridge” design concept for a business start-up district within our masterplan for Xiong’an New Area in China.

The concept creates a series of 19 closely spaced vehicle and pedestrian bridges for the Science and Technology Area of the masterplan, which will be home to the new Science Park, University Park, Internet Industrial Zone and Innovation Square as well as a mix of other uses and amenities.

The designs include a western-style “City Landscape Bridge”, a Chinese-style bridge, a “Future Imagination” bridge and a “Mountain Art” bridge. The 19 bridges are of different styles and characters but are designed to create a harmonious, three-dimensional bridge sequence.

The scheme uses a combination of Chinese and western design techniques to create a sequence which is future-orientated yet reflects traditional Chinese characteristics. The concept combines the highest standards of technology and engineering with context-appropriate functionality and a sense of artistry, applying a layered Chinese painting aesthetic to the sequencing.

The bridges will serve vehicles and pedestrians coming to and from the surrounding areas, which will include ecological spaces, health and wellbeing areas, places to relax and spaces in which to have fun.
