The bridge was brought to Georgia from Italy in 200 unassembled components. The bridge is 156 meters long and has more than 10 000 LED bulbs built-in, that are switched on daily 90 minutes before the sunset.
The pulsating lights are communicating the message in Morse code; the message says chemical elements from the Mendeleev's periodic table that make up a human body. The idea of the Italian designer Michele De Lucchi was to broadcast the message which is "the anthem of life and piece among people and nations".

Stunning architecture and great photos. I like the hard contrasts in #3 very much and especially that picture has a cool scroll-effect ! grinning

It sure is different. Old mixed with new but in a somewhat strange way. Thanks dear friend

Maxi pad bridge...I like that symmetry in #3.  The music hall is one ugly building.  It has a phallic quality to it, no?

I think this music hall building is a very controversial building in this city. I really do not know how to describe it, but phallic comes to mind too smile

Glass snail is a better nick name than maxi-pad (as it is known) snail smile
