An architectural tour will surely take you around Abu Dhabi’s most glittering buildings and historical landmarks and it might be easy for you to overlook a bridge. That would hardly be the case with Sheikh Zayed Bridge, the ultramodern waving structure that was designed by the late genius architect Zaha Hadid. Soaring up to 60m over the Maqta channel, Sheikh Zayed Bridge evokes cascading sand dunes and stretches out for 842m, providing a 4 lane highway for the residents of the Emirate. Often described as the most complex bridge ever built, Sheikh Zayed Bridge is best seen from a distance at night, when it stands out with a vivid light display that flows across its fluid structure.
