Soon, the planned community of the Meixi Lake District in Changsha, China will be graced by a bridge modeled after the legendary mathematical concept of the Möbius strip.

NEXT Architects just won first place in a design competition with plans for a sinuous pedestrian bridge in Changsha, China . . .
