Nearly a year after opening its “Xiamen Bicycle Skyway,” DISSING+WEITLING Architecture has won another major infrastructure project in the Chinese city. The winning design, “Xiamen Footpaths,” is set to be a 21-kilometer network of paths and bridges creating a large-scale network connecting the surrounding nature and the budding metropolis of Xiamen.

Steen Savery Trojaborg, partner and CEO at DISSING+WEITLING, said of the design, “It will be a fascinating experience to walk among the treetops and see the city and landscape unfold from a new perspective.”
