Sheikh Zayed Bridge
Designed by British female architect and Pritzker Prize winner, Dame Zaha Hadid, the striking 842-metre-long, 64-metre-high Sheikh Zayed Bridge is said to be the most complex bridge ever built.
Its curved arches evoke undulating sand dunes and it features a dynamic lighting design, with subtle colours that flow across its spine. Its road decks are suspended from symmetrical steel arches, creating a wave-form with a fluid silhouette.
