13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Helix Bridge

The Bridge will link the Bayfront area to Marina Centre, completing a walking route that brings visitors to the major attractions around the bay and is envisaged to be a destination point by itself – a place for visitors to enjoy and catch a panoramic view of the Singapore city skyline. The pedestrian bridge is the world’s first curved “Double Helix” pedestrian bridge. It comprises two opposite spiraling steel members that are held together by a series of connecting struts to form a tubular structure. This provides an inherent strength, ideal for the curved form. Its resemblance to the structure of DNA, the basic building block of life, symbolises “life and continuity”, “renewal”, “everlasting abundance” and “growth”, reflecting our aspirations for Marina Bay.
