Shanghai’s Innovative Pedestrian Bridge

Circular Pedestrian Bridge Shanghai

Constructed some time in 2011, the circular pedestrian bridge in Lujiazui, Pudong District of Shanghai blends an aesthetically pleasing design with environmental necessity. Essentially saving many Shanghaians the toil of traffic and turnabouts, the infrastructure literally bridges the gap between work and play, as it connects users easily with office buildings, cafes and restaurants. This design comes as part of China’s latest wave of environmentally-charged innovation, market-based adaptation and CO2 emission reduction, some of which has been rewarded by the World Wildlife Federation as some of the best efforts to combat climate change.

But where you and I might see a fence, French artist Cedric Le Borgne sees a web of infinite possibility. The ethereal chicken wire sculptures seen above are currently nested in Geneva’s Rue de la Fontaine, blurring the line between the natural with the surreal and forcing us to question the difference between the malleable and the concrete. Be sure to visit Neat-o-rama for even more peeks into Le Borgne’s urban dreamscape.
