A Bridge to Stop and PonderA Bridge to Stop and Ponder

The name is Nature Bridge because it spans between two huge parks within the city and offers a vast overlook of trees and green spaces.
The 270-meter bridge straddles the Modarres Highway and connects two public parks -- Taleqani and Ab-o-Atash.
Leila Araqian and Ali-Reza Behzad from Diba Tensile Architecture in Tehran designed the bridge. Their imposing design won several awards, including the Popular Choice Prize for Highways & Bridges from the Architizer A+ Awards, a global architectural competition based in New York, as well as the 2016 Aga Khan Award for Architecture.
