Project Description:

Inspired the city’s theme, Water is Life, the design of these twin pedestrian bridges is that of a delicate “necklace,” draped along the ring of the Qetaifan Island Marina. The bridge’s curves trace the radius of the island’s waterfront, while separate walkways weave across the channel creating a chain, its links supported by stainless steel cables affixed to two concrete pylons. The cables are connected to the deck in alignment with the two paths, intertwining the pedestrian experience of each bridge with the structural system that supports it. The experience of the bridges continues beyond the boundaries of their sites; through the use of pattern and repetition in on-grade pathways, the necklace motif links both bridges and extends their character along the entire promenade.
