Next Architects are known for their outlandish designs, the latest being the Lucky Knot Bridge in Changsha, China.

Featuring three bridges woven into one, the steel bridge was recently completed at the end of last year.

Incredibly, the Lucky Knot Bridge spans over a highway and sits 78 feet above the Dragon King Harbor River so that boats can cruise under it with ease.

The 600-foot bridge has eight available street entrances, in addition to 5 places where the 3 intertwined bridges overlap called “moon gates.”

The Lucky Knot Bridge looks more like a roller coaster than a bridge, but there’s a reason it isn’t flat as the knot stands for luck and prosperity in ancient Chinese folk art.
