New Fire-Breathing Dragon Bridge Opens in Vietnam

Currently making its way around the Internet is this new fire-breathing dragon bridge in Da Nang, a major port city in Vietnam. Opened on March 29, the 38th anniversary of the liberation of Da Nang City, the 666 meter long, 37.5 meter wide bridge has six lanes for traffic and two pedestrian sidewalks. The steel arch bridge weighs up to 1,000 tons, making it the biggest in the whole world.

But that’s not all. The Dragon Bridge is outfitted with a modern lighting system that includes 15,000 Philips LED lights that make it brilliantly change colors. In addition, the dragon is capable of releasing bursts of fire or sprays of water from its mouth.

The modern bridge, which crosses the Han River, now serves as the shortest link between Da Nang airport on the western side of the city and the beaches to the east. Construction started in July 2009 and the total cost of the project was around $85 million. With so many modern bridges now spanning the Han River, Da Nang is living up to its nickname “The City of Bridges.”

Artist Crystal Liu intimately ties her emotional states to beautiful abstract paintings. In large-scale works, she constructs landscapes that are metaphors for the intangible forces that drive us. Visually, elements of the Earth and sky are the actors for the feelings we cannot easily imagine. Together, the sun, mountains, and more depict “narratives of conflict, entrapment, longing, and precarious hope.” These symbols allow Liu to seem removed, yet make the pieces deeply personal.
