Blog Post # 12


When thinking of the concept of good design for all i started to think about something that benefits multiple people and i remembered the recently built bridge that connects China to Hong Kong. See this just isn’t a normal bridge because in Hong Kong they drive on the left side of the road and in china they drive on the right so the connection between these two country’s was always confusing and dangerous. After some time of planning the Dutch firm NL Architects proposed a brilliant, simple solution, the Flipper bridge. This concept of using the figure 8 shape to lower one side of traffic and allow it to pass under the other lane bringing it up on the other side of the road was a clever solution the the problem the firm had to face with this design.

  1. Indeed this isnt a normal design of a bridge. It appears as if there may be a problem with firmness but technology probably assures safety.
    But the design concept is smart. :) ... great post
