Spectacular Lucky Knot bridge in China twists and turns like a Mbius Strip
The Lucky Knot’s eye-catching design isn’t the only way it stands out from most pedestrian bridges . Public engagement was a big focus of the design, which was crafted with recreational, ecological, and tourist activities in mind. Multiple landing platforms and cutouts, as well as the bridge’s multiple swooping levels that connect to different heights like the riverbank and the elevated park, encourage a sense of play. An LED light show brings the bridge to life at night. The undulating bridge offers stunning views of the river, Meixi Lake, the city of Changsha, and the surrounding mountains.
