The bridge serves to connect two parts of the technology park, to make it convenient. The starting point is to seek a design to emphasize the 'connection', or even symbolize the 'connection'. The design proposed to 'tie a knot' in the middle of the road, this action tie the two parts of park together instead of only 'linking'. The 'knot' frames the views and becomes a landmark for the entrance. This 'window' can be multi-purposed, it can be stage for a concert, or screen space for outdoor movie.

Design Concept 

Bridge is not again purely function for passing though, but it also can become an elevated flyover garden park. Here, you can sit down under the tree canopy, relax and escape from the exhausting work; Here, you can enjoy the serenity and listen to the sound of fountain, flowing of water, the singing of bird and accompanied with blooming flower; Here, you can sit on swing chair and blank your mind, bath in the starry night; Here, entrepreneurs meet each other and ignite the spark of creativity. 

The floor plan imitates the silhouette of winter plum tree and induces the poetic connection inside this technology park. The design of multi-entry points (lift, slope, and staircase) invites more possibility of encounter happens. The up-down juxtaposing flower-platform functions as the quiet node beside main road. Like a 3D floating forest which intertwined in between the buildings. These flower-platforms planted with tree or build with the water fountain….like 12 tranquil garden bay floating among the trees.
