The Long Sleeve Skywalk by Turenscape is a simple but graceful integration of complicated urban functions with poetic space. Straddling across several river systems and a express way (Xuning Road), the Long Sleeve Skywalk is located on Xuning Road, Suining County, Jiangsu Province.
It connects the focal point of the county, Harmony Square, to the Forest Plaza across the road. Beyond meeting the basic requirements, the design was inspired by the dancing shadows of long sleeves in the Chinese operas like Peking Opera. In addition, the bridge’s intricate light display system glows softly at night as it weaves fluidly between the city square, waters, and woodland. The Long Sleeve Skywalk sets an example of the artful integration of function and form of urban landscape elements.
