Strolling along Henderson Wave Bridge

At 83 meters (274 feet) long and 36 meters (118 feet) above Henderson Road in Singapore, the Henderson Wave is known not only for being the highest pedestrian and cycle bridge in the country, but also for its unique wave-like architecture. A collaboration between London-based designer George L. Legendre, structural firm Adams Kara Taylor Engineers and Singaporean RSP architects and engineers, the bridge stretches out in a U-shape and sustains seven half-domes made of steel ribs alternating above and below one side of the bridge’s wooden deck.
The bridge acts as a pathway between two parks in a mountainous area, and locals enjoy strolling along the bridge or relaxing on the benches inside the domes. At night, the domes emit a soft glow formed by LED lighting that accent the curves of the structure.
