"Taking Flight to the Future"
This project is a part of the Haihe River development project in Tianjin. The design concept was inspired by the Phoenix, a mythical creature often associated with the color red in Chinese culture, and specifically named after Chifeng, known as the "Red Phoenix City." The intention was to create a balance of yin and yang in Tianjin, with the existing landmark Tower representing the dragon and the New Red Phoenix bridge complementing it. The design was selected as the successful bidder for the project in 2004.
