The ‘ECOntainer Bridge’ by Yoav Messer Architects in Israel is a 160-meter long bridge that repurposes shipping containers. It will be constructed in the Ariel Sharon Park, which is planned to be a rich center for nature and also urban life. It boasts an emphasis on the environmental ecology.

Designboom notes that the shipping containers will connect two sides of the park and because of their modular nature, over 70% of the construction work can be done offsite to make it minimally invasive.

The bridge will be used by pedestrians, cyclists, and light vehicles. It features balconies with seating areas, observation platforms, a viewing promenade, and display panels to keep visitors up to date with information about the area.

Photovoltaic solar cells will provide ‘clean’ electricity to illuminate the bridge and its surroundings. The architects hope the ‘ECOntainer bridge’ will not only be a place to pass through, but also a destination.
