Small Jewel Under Construction: Guangzhou Pedestrian Bridge

Every year the city of Guangzhou in China invites and commissions 2-3 world renowned architects to design small but highly regarded projects in Guangzhou. The design is started in the concept phase and it is carried out to construction. In 2020 PEI Architects was invited and commissioned to design one of their yearly projects, the Guangzhou Pedestrian Bridge. Despite its small size, the carefully balanced and highly complex geometry turns this small jewel like structure into an important bridge along the riverfront.
