Da Gu Bridge

The DaGu Bridge was one of the foremost projects to emerge as part of Tianjin, China’s massive city renewal project. Stationed at the center of Tianjin’s redevelopment area, the DaGu Bridge is a six-lane auto and pedestrian thoroughfare crossing the Haihe River. Dr. Man-Chung Tang, CEO of T.Y. Lin International developed a unique concept for the bridge’s design reflecting the sun, moon and stars.

The DaGu Bridge was awarded a prestigious FIGG Award by the American Society of Civil Engineers, for the landmark design of bridges, in addition to a 2006 IESNA Award of Merit in Lighting Design.
