The scheme design for the seven landscaped bridges around the Dishui Lake landscape belt
is based on an analysis of the base around the Dishui Lake
and a response to an already completed public project.

The initial point of its need was to provide a coherent path
for the park along the seven river channels.

It is also necessary to satisfy the need to integrate the concept of each service area,
the character of the surrounding buildings and, in particular, the natural environment,

As nature, horizon, sky, sun, stars, water, light, reflections, etc. 

The design of each bridge is therefore a response to its surroundings.

It provides more than a single function of crossing the water.

It is a dialogue with the form of the neighbourhood

This in turn creates a special architectural environment. 

Each bridge is a special node in the lagoon of Dripping Lake.

Like each pearl in a necklace.

Their essential quality is that each bridge has an individual design concept.

The core of the structure and the measured scale of the bridge.

In addition, they all belong to the public space and serve the public.


Furthermore, each unique location gives each bridge its own personality, shape, colour and form.

The seven bridges, from each viewpoint,
surround and gaze out over the lake.

Enjoy the sunrise and sunset, watch the alternation of day and night,
linger in and out of the lake and the sea,
and stand constantly between heaven and earth.

The seven bridges create seven different perspectives from which to view and explore the lake.
