Weekly Photo Challenge: Geometry

No, that isn’t a spaceship landing pad, it’s actually a luxury hotel and resort called Marina Bay Sands in Singapore.  However, That isn’t the geometry I’m submitting for this week’s Photo Theme.  The footbridge leading across the water to the Marina Bay Sands is called the Helix Bridge and it stands as quite an architectural statement.  Because of it’s curved frame, the Helix Bridge is the world’s first curved bridge.

As the name suggests, it’s modeled after a DNA helix structure.  At night, lights around the structure illuminate in four colours, indicating the four base pair chemicals of DNA, Adenine Guanine, Cytosine, and Thymine.

On one side of the bridge, the one being faced in this picture, is the Marina Bay Sands resort with its rooftop park, bar, and restaurant and a very upscale shopping mall whose interior can be traversed by a Venetian-style riverboat.

On the side the photo is taken on is a Ferris wheel, a floating football field and an array of multi-coloured bleachers along a nice riverwalk.
