what is bridges architecture?
Bridges architecture is the preferred type of many engineers, and some call it the engineering of marvels. This is due to the difficulties faced by some cities in the construction of giant bridges, in addition to creating special aesthetic designs for each bridge.
Bridges are not just build to connect cities or area, bridges have become part of the city’s landmarks and a center of attraction for visitors. In recent years, the cost of building bridges has reached billions of dollars and others have been designed by the best architects of the day.
