The Incredible Golden Bridge, Da Nang: Visiting Tips & Tricks

Golden Bridge Structure, Copyright ©

The footbridge’s floating-in-the-sky design is the brainchild of TA Landscape Architecture, a Vietnamese firm. The most striking element of their architectural masterpiece is, undoubtedly, the pair of colossal, weathered stone hands appearing to support the bridge. These hands symbolize the hands of the gods, cradling a golden thread amidst the verdant mountains, connecting man and nature.

The materials the Golden Bridge is made of were chosen for both strength and aesthetic appeal, structural integrity and integration with the surrounding environment.

Its robust framework is crafted from steel, ensuring durability and the ability to support the weight of crowds. The walkway is decked with wooden planks, adding a natural charm that blends seamlessly with the scenic landscape. For the railings, a combination of metals is used to achieve the bridge’s signature golden sheen. The giant hands that seem to hold the bridge, are ingeniously made from a mix of fiberglass and wire mesh. This gives them a realistic, ancient stone-like look, while being lighter and more versatile than real stone.

The architecture and engineering behind Golden Bridge remind of the importance of creating spaces that resonate with the environment, inspire awe, reflection and wonder, all in one. In the words of the famous architect, Frank Lloyd Wright, “Architecture is that great living creative spirit which from generation to generation, from age to age, proceeds, persists, creates, according to the nature of man, and his circumstances as they change.
