Split into two nearly equal-length sections, the bridges span two waterways at the river fork. Rising like a piece of land art, the vermillion red support structure is constructed out of steel columns that form the shape of a tilted pyramid. The two pyramids appear as mirror copies of one another that change shape depending on the viewing angle. Steel tension rods stabilize the 36-meter-long hollow concrete decks.
