Changsha is developing; the Chinese metropolis is growing and changing at a rapid pace. A large-scale master plan has been created to bring new life to the area around the river and the surrounding lakes. The Lucky Knot plays a key role in this project because of its relationship with the location; the emerging New Lake District. The undulating connection provides users a unique experience over the water that inspires them. The Lucky Knot makes an important contribution to the renewal of the city’s public space with its recreational, ecological and tourist program. The iconic red bridge gives a new identity to the New Lake District.
