invisible bridge

When China gets hit, they hit back harder. After closing their record-breaking glass bridge in August due to overwhelming demand, they made plans for an even better (and more terrifying) attraction.

Developed by France-based Martin Duplantier Architectes, it will be a series of bridges and pathways connecting two sandstone formations within the  Wulingyuan Scenic Area, Zhangjiajie (AKA the Avatar mountains). The difference this time, is that you won't even be able to see the cables and beams that hold the structure, as the support system will be made of mirrored stainless steel and black stone to create an 'invisible' effect. Nozzles will spray water every seven minutes, creating a low-lying cloud in the valley, and the black stone pathway will reflect its surroundings.

Nearby, they will also be building glass pavilions that will offer 360 degree views of China’s first national forest park, as well as VIP overnight accommodations and a cafe. The over $4 million construction is expected to be complete in 2018, and we can hardly wait (to make our friends cross first).
