new bridges like poetry

There's more than meets the eye with this structure. The bridge, designed collaboratively by <a href="http://www.cobe.dk/" target="_blank">COBE Architects</a> <a href="http://www.dw.dk/" target="_blank">Dissing + Weitling</a> and <a href="http://www.cowi.com/menu/home/" target="_blank">COWI</a>, includes passageways for both trains and cars, as well as a full station and park-and-ride facilities. It's set to open in 2018.

At just over 3,000 ft, the Danjiang Bridge -- one of the last commissions awarded to the late <a href="http://edition.cnn.com/2016/03/31/architecture/zaha-hadid-appreciation/">Zaha Hadid</a> -- will be the world's longest single-tower, asymmetric cable-stayed bridge, according to <a href="http://www.zaha-hadid.com/" target="_blank">the firm</a>. <br /><br />The subtle design is meant to have visual impact without obscuring the Taipei sunset.                                            
<a href="http://bcq.es/" target="_blank">BCQ Arquitectura Barcelona's</a> plant-covered bridge takes Heatherwick's green concept one step further. Their proposed upgrades to the existing Sarajevo Bridge include photoluminescent stones to light the pathway without electricity and  concrete that converts pollution into harmless substances. <br /><br />As of now, there is no set completion date.
Uruguayan architect <a href="http://www.rvapc.com/" target="_blank">Rafael Viñoly's</a> circular bridge can only be truly appreciated from above. The circular bridge, which replaced a raft crossing, creates the effect of a lagoon within a lagoon.                                                            




In a rare twist, the <a href="http://www.ljusarkitektur.com/en/" target="_blank">Sölvesborg Bridge</a> -- Europe's longest pedestrian bridge at 2480 feet -- was specially enhanced by a lighting design firm rather than an architect. Ljusarkitektur mounted the structure with color-change LED lights.
Danish firm <a href="http://www.bystrup.dk/" target="_blank">Bystrup</a> recently won the commission to build a bridge in South London's Pimlico neighborhood. <br /><br />However, the pedestrians-only curving structure is not without controversy. Critics worry the new bridge, which is not yet under construction, will destroy Pimlico Gardens, one of few public green spaces in the area.
