The DSSH Bridge is Sustainable, Dynamic and Visually Impressive

I wouldn't be surprised if at first, people might find themselves a bit too timid to cross the DSSH Bridge (Dynamic ShapeShifting Helix). That is, when the DSSH Bridge is illuminated with electric LED lighting, of course. Yet this helix-shaped overpass is completely safe, not to mention very convenient as well.

Designed by Sanzpont, the DSSH Bridge recently won at the Building to Building Pedestrian Bridge International Challenge. Sustainable, dynamic and visually impressive, I'm not surprised that it did. Although the stunning light show at night may seem to take up a lot of energy, photovoltaic solar panels generate clean energy during the day while the inclusion of green plants helps in circulating fresh oxygen.

Overall, the DSSH Bridge would be a great addition to any city. Stats for Electric Pedestrian Overpasses Trending: Older & Mild
