The design of the three-level pedestrian bridge was inspired by ancient Iranian architecture such as the famous Khaju bridge in which the bridge was not just a crossing path, linking two sides of a river or valley, but It was a place to visit, relax and enjoy beautiful views.

Tabiat Bridge (or Nature bridge) was inaugurated in October as Iran’s largest pedestrian bridge, writes The construction of this huge 2,000-ton bridge at 300 meter length was completed in less than two years.

The bridge gives Tehranis an opportunity to shake away their stress and exhaustion by just lingering on the bridge and enjoying the marvelous view of the whole city.

This iconic pedestrian bridge is designed in 3 levels and passes over Modares highway. The first level has a café gallery and a coffee shop.

In the preliminary design, the bridge consists of a main body that crosses over Moddares highway. There are several walkways spreading through Taleqani Park that have access to the bridge.

The bridge arched at different heights gives visitors numerous views and perspectives.

The second level is mainly designed for people who are crossing from one park to the other; they may be walking, biking, skating or riding in a horse carriage.

Finally, level three, or the stay zone, is a place to stay and sightsee. In the middle of the bridge there are stairs and ramps designed to get from one level to another. The ramps make all the levels of the bridge accessible for wheelchairs.

Tabiat Bridge is a very complex structure. The tree-like columns and unsymmetrical curved body made the engineering calculations even more complicated for the engineering team.

All in all a massive steel structure held by only 3 columns can take anyone’s breath away.

Tabiat bridge is located between Taleqani Park to the east, and Ab-Atash (water and fire) Park to the west. It can be accessed via the three highways of Modares, Haqani, and Hemmat.
