“the tai ping bridge project is a reconstruction and surface renovation project of a historic 300 year-old bridge. the project reconciles the historical, existing masonry construction with modern techniques of pre-cast concrete. the bridge was reprogrammed as a public space, built and planed with the help of volunteers and villagers.”

a great small intervention in the guizhou province of china by rural urban framework – aka rufwork. another aspect of the project which isn’t visible in the photographs was the reconstruction of a collapsed arch in the bridge.
