The Danjiang Bridge at the gates of Taipei will be the longest single-column bridge in the world. In 2015 we developed this animation for the winner of the architecture competition, Zaha Hadid Architects London. What made the film so successful, was its combination of emotional impact and a functional explanation of the construction phases. Over a period of 5 years, we established a close cooperation with the construction company Sinotec. This culminated, among other things, in a contribution to the stationary project pavilion, which was inaugurated by Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen.

For its exhibition we developed an interactive, virtual journey across the entire bridge, which can be experienced with virtual reality glasses.
