Life Bridge

Best Project of Public Building or Facility

About the project
Shiraz is one of the major tourist cities in Iran with rich cultural history. The gardens of Qasrdasht, Chamran Mountain and Khoshk River, due to their background and role in tourism on an urban scale, are known as natural landmarks of Shiraz. Also, location of the Salamat sidewalk in the vicinity of the above natural elements and with a compatible function with them, has strengthened the tourist character of the area.
According to the name of the project which is the bridge of life, this design is based on the concept of «life», and we have tried to display «The flow of life» on the bridge. Horizontal curves symbolize the tortuous path of each person's life, and vertical curves, in addition to providing bridge function, with a proper pedestrian slope, symbolize the ups and downs of life. Each pedestrian crossing the bridge overlooks other parts of the bridge and observes the flow of others.
