Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Crossing, Dubai



The Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Crossing is a beautiful bridge about 1.7 miles that will be built in Dubai. This project is awesome, the bridge’s form, a simple arch, is the most basic of structural solutions for spanning great distances, this particular application of the arch is informed by the culture, topography, light, and script of the region. The Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Crossing should be end on 2011 and has 55,800 feet long.

When it comes to Dubai and its extreme features and I don’t even want to think about it. It’s probably the most extravagant and exaggerated placed on earth. It has a lot of extremely beautiful and interesting structures and this bridge is just one of them. It’s another of taking something so simple as a bridge and turning it into something so complex and complicated like this particular bridge. This is the kind of structure that only Dubai could have.

Actually this bridge only looks complicated and sophisticated, The structure is quite simple and it’s the details that make it special and over the top. There’s only this much I can say about this amazing structure. The pictures speak for themselves. Enjoy!
