The Zaha Hadid-designed Sheikh Zayed Bridge is a breathtaking feat of design and engineering as new photos from London firm Hufton+Crow demonstrate.

The undulating structure, which was finished in 2010, spans 842 meters and links Abu Dhabi Island to the mainland. Its swerving arches are 64 meters at their highest. At night, it is lit up in a spectacular light show, similar to the Bay Bridge of San Francisco. Yet it is not merely an object of visual admiration; it has four traffic lanes and a road deck on either side, thus marrying functionality and aesthetics.
