It's no wonder that the judges of the Building to Building Pedestrian Bridge International Challenge awarded this mind-blowing, shape-shifting helix bridge by Sanzpont first place. Featuring a tensile fabric that allows the bridge to move as visitors walk across it, it also captures energy from the sun. If that's not enough goodness for our strictest technophiles, check this out: the bridge also lights up at night with linear LED technology, and purifies the air in its immediate environment. We've got more images of this incredible design so click through our gallery to see them all.
Not only is this a shape-shifting helix bridge (cool in its own right)
But it's also an art exhibit illuminated with LED lights
And an energy generator
Folding photovoltaic panels captures solar rays used to produce renewable energy
And plants incorporated into the design help to purify the air in the surrounding environment.
The linear LED technology consumes very little energy
And gives the bridge a futuristic glow
Here are more details about how this design works.
It is little wonder it was awarded first place in the Building to Building Pedstrian Bridge International Challenge.
