Telok Blangah Hill Park Bridge ‘Coexist With Nature’

30

Situated 120 feet above the forest in Telok Blangah Hill Park outside Singapore, this network of pedestrian bridges and suspended walkways gives visitors a bird’s-eye view of the park’s breathtaking forest canopy. Rather than disturbing the delicate landscape of the park below, engineers designed this network of pathways for visitors to get a possible close look to the ecosystem without disturbing a delicate balance below. Furthermore, the web-like paths consist of open structures which allow light and air to pass through. Another amazing feature of this leafy treetop paradise is the fact that you can actually come face to face with some of the rich wildlife that lives there such as squirrels, sunbirds, doves, lizards and white-crested laughing thrushes. With today’s architectural sentiment leaning towards mingling green spaces and cities, Telok Blangah Hill Park is a real-life example of how successfully nature and architecture can combine.
