Al Garhoud bridge

The Al Garhoud Bridge project is to resolve the traffic increase between Dubai and its international airport and hence, provides a symbolic gateway to the Principality across its main waterway.
This symmetric cable stayed bridge that I design as part of many options developed with MBA and Halcrow, features two 100m spans held by a distinctive circular tower rising 80m above the water level. The cable arrangement describes the Arabic crescent, turned upwards towards a mysterious heaven.
