    Wheel bridges

    The wheel bridges rise as architectural landmarks in the progressive new district. The construction follows a suspension bridge concept, where the pylons are made up of the two giant steel rings rising 50 meters above sea level. In order not to break the circles, the 28-meter-wide bridge girder is divided into two and connected crosswise with steel cross beams.

    The two twin bridges are placed parallel to each other at a distance of 800 meters, which allows them to be seen simultaneously. The view of one circle within the other when two bridges are seen from a certain angle is also a remarkable feature, demonstrating the elegance of the pylons while reinforcing an aesthetic connection with the faceted piers.

    A demand for the extraordinary

    Like other buildings in the Gulf States, the bridges indicate the demand for ‘something extraordinary’ that can create awareness both locally and internationally. Lisail is being built on five artificial islands with exclusive luxury apartments, offices, golf courses, beaches and first-class hotels.

  • Broerne med de enorme stålringe rejser sig som arkitektoniske vartegn i den progressive nye bydel nord for hovedstaden Doha. Konstruktionen følger et hængebroskoncept, hvor de to kæmpe stålringe udgår pylonerne, der hæver sig 50 meter over havets overflade. Ringene består af højstyrkestål, og for ikke at bryde cirklerne er den 28 meter brede brodrager delt i to og forbundet på tværs med ståltværbjælker.

    Som andre byggerier i Golfstaterne er broerne udtryk for efterspørgslen på det ekstraordinære, der kan skabe opmærksomhed både lokalt og internationalt.
