Wuxi Xidong Park Bridge

Architects: L&A Design Group
Location: Wuxi, China
Project Team: Sean Shi, Kevin Wang, Liang Meng, Ning Ye
Client: Wuxi High-speed Railway Commercial Zone Committee
Project Year: 2011

L&A Design Group has developed an exciting contemporary bridge design as an architectural highlight of Wuxi Xidong Park, located in Jiangsu province, China. The bridge is planned to be the main connection between the north and south foreshores of the parks lake and allows visitors access to a small island destination that commands views over the water as well as café facilities and pocket gardens.

The important position, jutting out over the central water body, encouraged a dynamic design response. The design team has envisioned a signature iconic structure that is attractive, has a flowing modern form expressing the importance of Wuxi’s relationship with water and is functional in its connections to the island, foreshores and allowing boats to pass underneath its elevation.

Designed as a whole volume, the bridge presents unique curves and a platform that widens as the bridge crosses the island. The platform creates a focus for the bridge maximizing views out across the lake under a shaded canopy, integrates ramp access to the island and forms an intimate space for the cafe underneath.

To reduce the long linear scale of the bridge an “S” shape plan was created to provide closer vistas for people accessing the park from both sides of the lake. It is a bridge with a ‘twist’. As the bridge reaches its island destination the shape stimulates a dramatic interaction between architecture, landscape and water. Construction will utilize lightweight steel structures, light colored outer panel skins for a sleek look that can be elegantly lit up at night and polished timber detailing to tactile surfaces such as seating and railing.

...Nanning is home of the 21st tallest building[2] in the People's Republic of China, the Diwang International Commerce Center (276 m), currently the tallest building in Guangxi and southwestern China (excluding Chongqing). The second tallest building in Nanning is the World Trade Commerce City at 218 meters...
They both say it's built. When I red this, I went to look for it.. and guess what.. I couldn't find it..
Obviously it's not

Two impressive renderings of a Poly International Plaza in China. I cannot find any information on this expect that it has been designed by SOM. The
renderings was released by MIR (company visualizing renderings) today so its a fresh project.
