Harmony Bridge is inspired by sound and harmony. The structural forms are organic and beautiful, modern and complex. The story behind the design of the bridge is a metaphor – one of harmony for Guangzhou. Harmony Bridge will be a tool for creating growth, communication, interaction, economic strength and unification. It will do more than connect two points. It will unify people – allowing them to flow together with both nature and city. Guangzhou is a city of realized visions, a city where spirit endures through architectural icons. It is a city passionate about the beauty and mystery behind grand schemes, aiming endlessly towards the sky and across the landscape. The most ancient form of timber bridges are log bridges, which
are employed by felling a tree over a gap needed to be crossed. Historical bridges also play an important role within the cultural life of the area where they have been built, providing meeting places for residents to exchange information, worship and entertain. Harmony Bridge respects the history of ancient Chinese construction while providing an innovative representation for the city of Guangzhou.
