Taichung leisure path bridge

longitudinal
America based landscape design office American G&D Group designed a new 20 kilometer long leisure path for the Taiwanese city of Taichung. The plan includes a 370 meter long bicycle and pedestrian bridge, which we were asked to design.

water storage
The park will function as a reservoir for collection and storage of excess rain water during the rainy season. This prompted us to come up with an innovative idea: diamond-shaped steel columns with an integrated French-drain at the bottom that function as water reservoirs.

This way, the bridge will play an active role in flood prevention.
