There is a real beauty about bridges that one can appreciate, being given an opportunity to observe the forces at play and the way that the structure handles them. Then you come across a project like the Infinity Loop Bridge and behold the breathtaking union of engineering and aesthetics.

Man's mastery of metal has enabled the success of projects like this monumental infrastructural sculpture, allowing common urban elements to embody much more profound ideas. When viewed from the west or witnessed with its reflection in the water, the Zhuhai bridge manifests itself as a giant Lemniscate symbol. Its elegant composition is a calculated posture established by two separate spans, a curving six-lane road deck and consequent uneven loading. In the place of a solution that might have been visually awkward, Buro Happold and 10 Design have created the graceful Infinity Loop Bridge.
