Infrastructures of all kinds are recently becoming more important components of our built environment. As part of a much larger research, professional and academic framework, named LOCUS (Laboratory of Context- based, User-experience Spaces), Prof. Dr. Pedro Pablo Arroyo Alba presents through some of his projects, mainly developed in Shanghai, China, how bridge design, beyond solving a problem of physical connectivity, offers the opportunity to provide for public spaces of destination where visitors prefer to stay and enjoy the surroundings, via the integration of engineering, architecture and landscape. Art, culture and history are very rich sources of inspiration during the process of adapting a generic structural system to a specific site.
