Israeli architects have created some notable bridges over the years, and now you can read more about these beautiful structures thanks to our friends at Israel21c.
Check out what they have to say about the Beersheva Station Bridge, which is shaped like two eyes and lights up at night! Or read the full list here.
This aesthetically interesting 210-meter-long bridge links the Beersheva North Railway Station, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev and the Gav-Yam Negev Advanced Technologies Park.
The steel bridge answers an accessibility dilemma that had plagued workers at the technology park. Now, instead of walking around the railway tracks under the bridge, they can simply cross over them.
The bridge – which lights up at night — was built by Bar Orian Architects and Rokach Ashkenazi Engineers. Its four undulating steel arches are twisted to create the shape of two eyes in the space between them.
“The arched formation creates a protected space for pedestrians, an experiential and exclusive journey, in which each step reveals a surprising view of shapes, materials, and sights,” said the architects.
