Famous Danish architects to design Chinese ‘footpath’

According to The Copenhagen Post the Danish architecture company Dissing+Weitling has been commisioned to design a project in Xiamen in the south of China called ‘Xiamen Footpath’.

The footpath will consist of seven bridges totalling to about 20 kilometers of free walking space for the citizens of Xiamen.

The purpose of the giant path is to lead the pedestrians away from the hectic traffic below and will also lead to the mountain area surrounding the city.

The Great Belt Fixed Link was also designed by Dissing+Weitling

Dissing+Weitling has already completed a similar project in the city. In 2017 the firm completed the ‘Xiamen Bicycle Skyway’, an elevated pathway along the BRT route in the city.

And that kind of architecture is generally what the firm is known for. In Denmark they are famous for creating the landmark The Great Belt Bridge (Storebæltsbroen) and in Copenhagen specifically the Cykelslangen bicycle bridge.
