Daily Dose: Henderson Waves

Add to TwitterLauded as one of the most beautiful pedestrian bridges, the Henderson Waves bridge in Singapore is a popular tourist attraction. It sits 120 feet above the roadway and connects Mount Faber Park and Telok Blangah Hill Park in organic, undulating arcs and dips.

The main structural components of this bridge are curved steel ribs which provide the framing for the “waves.” Yellow balau wood slats were used for the decking and glow in the LED light displays at night. Inside each upward arc is a covered alcove with seating areas for pedestrians.
