Henderson Waves is a bridge in Singapore that serves the practical purpose of connecting two parks and allowing pedestrians to safely traverse a six-lane freeway. But the design is far from utilitarian. The waves and curves of the structure were defined using mathematics and provide a striking image to onlookers.
Designed by IJP Corporation and RSP Architects, Planners, and Engineers, the worm-like structure was completed in 2008. Made of steel and timber, the bridge was built for $25.5 million by the Urban Redevelopment Authority in the Southern Ridges. It is about 900-feet long and is the highest pedestrian bridge in Singapore at 118-feet above the ground.
