I have been working on a project for Emirates, the airline of the UAE. Emirates has its worldwide hub in Dubai. I haven't been to Dubai (yet), but I am hoping this project gets me there (soon). In the meantime, I had to share this image of a bridge about to be built in Dubai. It's called the Dubai Creek 6th Bridge. Thank you Gizmodo for the tip-off.
This will be the tallest spanning arch bridge in the world, at 673 feet high. Heck, I didn't even know there was such a thing as a spanning arch bridge. I am, however, very familiar with Arches, having grown up in St. Louis, MO, which is home to the Gateway Arch. And I currently live in the hometown of the wildly creative architecture firm that designed the Dubai Creek 6th Bridge, called Fxfowle. Construction begins next month.
