  • Xiamen Foothpaths connects Xiamen in the South China with its green surroundings. Dissing+Weitling has designed the 23-kilometre large-scale network of footpaths, elevated footpathes and seven footbridges to give residents and visitors access to the nearby nature.

    We have focused on improving the pedestrian's ability to move around the city, and as an infrastructure project, Xiamen Foothpath promotes green mobility in Xiamen. Our design is adapted and flexible to work in the changing terrain of the city and landscape. Seven unique footbridges appear as beacons in the landscape and create a link between parks, forests and viewpoints, where the city and landscape can unfold from new perspectives.
