The longest and tallest glass bridge has been erected in an astonishingly beautiful canyon located in Zhangjiajie National Forest Park, China.
The Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon Glass Bridge is 430 meters long and is suspended 300 meters above ground.
“It will create an experience of being in pure nature while suspended in mid-air, between heaven and earth, like a bird with its wings open wide. I called it Bridge of Courageous Hearts,” said Haim Dotan, the Israeli architect who designed the bridge.
The architect created a steel frame that sustains the glass panels. The structure narrows towards the center to enhance the experience of the pedestrian.
“The Zhangjiajie Glass Bridge was designed to be as invisible as possible – a white bridge disappearing into the clouds. As the designer of this bridge located in an incredible and magical national park, I believe in nature, harmony, balance and beauty. Nature is beautiful as is. One wants to make the least impact upon it” said Dotan.
