Bridges are built with the primary purpose for transportation, connecting parts of a country or countries. However, sometimes it transcends this normal idea to take another role: to emblazon a landscape.

Let’s check out the best 5 pedestrian bridges that are just mesmerizing to behold.

5. Lucky Knot Bridge- China

Not having to care about the heavy loads of vehicles, this is a pedestrian bridge and its design doesn’t have to follow a standard bridge’s as well. That’s why it has twisted shapes which was actually purposefully planned by Next Architects.

Pedestrians can get access to the bridge through eight entrances.

It was made in a collaboration between Sven Ole Hansen ApS and Robin Snell & Partners while AF Lighting and Aarsleff worked on the design. The bridge is raised up from a thin deck and two tapered shafts centering for the swirling ramps.
