Dragon Eco Bridge, Chongqing Mountain, China

Created by Enrico Taranta in 2007, Taranta Creations is a global architectural firm, a team of architects, urbanists and interior designers. The office is located in Shanghai, China, inside the Red Town Sculpture and it takes care of different projects within the fields of architecture, urban planning, art and interior design, joined by the aim to create designs which combine the traditionality of program and location together with avant-garde of computer produced shapes.

The Eco-Bridge, a project currently in development within the Chongqing municipality, is a perfect example, a suspension bridge with a dragon shape that is going to be completed in 2012. With finished projects as the Shanghai Expo Tea Pavilions and recent designs commissions like a hotel design in the Beijing Bird’s Nest Stadium, the office is establishing itself more and more in China. Their head-office is located within the Red Town Sculpture Park in Shanghai, China.

This suspension bridge is a piece of engaging sculptural infrastructure, displaying different aesthetical and functional features depending of the view. Observed from the top, the structure reveals a dragon-like shape- a composition of graceful curvatures supporting the gridded roof that diffuses the sun’s glare from above. The platform of the bridge is interconnecting with the green mountain sides, blurring the line between natural surroundings and man-made design.
