Video: How Zaha's contest-winning Danjiang bridge will be built

  • 1 Comment

Watch this video showing how Zaha Hadid Architects’ competition-winning cable-stayed bridge over the Tamsui River in Taiwan will be constructed

The winning scheme, drawn up with German engineers Leonhardt, Andrä und Partner, will be the ‘world’s longest single-tower, asymmetric cable-stayed bridge’.

It uses just one 175m-tall concrete mast to support the 920m road, rail and pedestrian steel deck.

The £165 million bridge will connect the island’s Tamsui and Bali districts and reduce congestion on the existing Guandu Bridge further upstream.

  • An excellent video and design, demonstrating the thought that has gone into the interplay between design and constructability. Whoever said Zaha Hadid does not consider constructability especially in the Orient..... this is CDM in action abroad.
    Great work.
