Bridges are both landscape and infrastructure elements. Looking through the eyes of a landscape architect, bridges become a continuation of the landscape; a manmade action that heals the misconnections of the landscape. The problematique of infrastructure as a type of landscape and connecting element is a crucial topic which influences the landscape and its function. Connecting infrastructures such as bridges provoke urban, economic and cultural development . The challenge for landscape architects is to investigate in conceptualizing and illustrating a design approach that involves the landscape-urban connection and influences the society, economic growth and natural processes. The design of a bridge is a multidisciplinary task which requires a lot of understanding of the landscape, natural processes and engineering. The framing of the landscape through the infrastructure, sense of orientation, symbolism, imageability and adaptability of the design form the method which a landscape architect should follow in order to design a landscape infrastructure.
