Architects and engineers from Beijing and ‪‎Vienna‬ have teamed up to undertake an ambitious project of designing a suspension ‪bridge‬ that will span across the Gui River connecting Beijing city center to Zhangjiakou, North ‪‎China‬’s ‪Hubei‬.

What’s more, this awesome bridge is specifically built for the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.

The bridge, named San Shan Bridge, is a project which will be a combination of the Olympic symbol and its five rings, the landscape of mountains and valleys, and the structural resemblance of the bridge to the shape of a DNA.

Visitors will experience different perspectives of the bridge depending on where they stand. The main structure of the bridge is conceived as a series of the ‪Olympic‬ rings, which connect at their highest and lowest points.

Chirs Precht, co-founder of Penda says it is helpful to view the apparatus in a similar way as a bicycle wheel. There are 300-foot tall steel rings tilt toward each other in pairs, and the deck and cables are the hub and spokes of the wheel, respectively. Moreover, the structure aims to provide a public space, with transportation lanes and the pedestrian lanes separated by a natural stripe of hedges and trees.
