I casually fell in love, with this, one of a kind, kick ass designed bridge, by RSP architects planners & engineers and IJP corporation, in Singapore and I simply had to share it with all the Future Architecture enthusiastics!

Standing at 36m above the busy Henderson Road, Henderson Waves Bridge is Singapore’s highest pedestrian bridge, connecting Mount Faber Park to Telok Blangah Hill Park. 

This architectural wonder is a 274 meter-long and 8m-wide part of the Southern Ridges, a beautiful 9km (5.6 mi) trail in a lush open space that connects the hills of Mount Faber Park, Telok Blangah Hill Park and Kent Ridge Park.

What makes this pedestrian bridge unique is its stunning wave-like structure, made up of seven undulating curved steel ribs that alternately go above and below its deck. 

The curved ribs form alcoves that function as shelters with seats within, making them nice places to hang out. Thousands of yellow balau wood slats were used to compose the deck.
