Bridge of Light
The design and construction of this bridge have long been planned and researched to be compatible with the environmental conditions in which it is built. The bridge is made of wood and shows the path to the visitors with ropes woven around the trees. Since the bridge has a long way (about 150 meters), there must be points of support in the middle of the road. Larger spaces have been built at the sites that visitors can use to stop, enjoy the area and take photos. As it gets dark, the bridge lights come on. Unparalleled scenery is created by the use of light and flickering light sensors.
