Aerial view of bridge over Yuandang Lake

A snaking Shanghai bridge features in today's Dezeen Weekly newsletter

The latest edition of our Dezeen Weekly newsletter features a bridge that incorporates spaces for play, rest and planting.

Brearley Architects + Urbanists (BAU) created a bridge connecting two areas of wetland across Shanghai's Yuandang Lake.

The 586-metre-long bridge for cyclists and pedestrians is a "hybrid structure", blending architecture, infrastructure and landscape with the existing pathways and nature on the site.

Commenters are wowed. One said, "This is just gorgeous. I like everything about it."
