2016: Sun Group contacted TA Architecture to build a road connecting Marseille station and Le Jardin D’Amour flower garden so that moving between these two points is more convenient and safer for tourists.

Unique architectural features

The curved design like a silk strip halfway up the mountain is the difference of the Golden Bridge Vietnam compared to other bridges. Standing in the middle of a pedestrian bridge with perfect curvature, visitors will be gently embraced by clouds and nature, as if lost in the foreground.

The glossy yellow color of the railing and bridge shell uses steel plates painted with gold emulsion and glossy titanium-plated stainless steel, so when the sunlight shines down, it will create an iridescent reflection effect, helping the Golden Bridge shine brightly and stand out among the mountains and forests.

The hands reaching out from the rock is an idea that comes from the story of the gods and people at Le Jardin D’Amour flower garden, inspired by the architects to create a special connection between the two attractions.

In it, the detail that can be combined with a bridge is nothing more suitable than a hand. Moreover, the feeling of architects when standing on the side of the hill is like standing on the hands of a god in the mythical world. From this idea, the sketch of giant hands supporting the silk strip was born, carrying the message that people are surrounded by gods.

Standing in front of the hand at the Golden Bridge Vietnam, many tourists call this the hand of God pulling the golden thread from inside the mountain, or the Golden Bridge is likened to the “Gate of Heaven” leading to the “land of foresight”, bringing hope for a bright and prosperous future.

After seeing the hands, visitors assume that they were created from rocky mountains. However, the truth surprised them and the architectural world. The hand is shaped from tubular steel columns, wire mesh and fiberglass with patchy marks, moss so realistic that it deceives the sight of visitors thanks to the theming stucco. Through this, it can be seen the creative talent and enthusiasm of the design and construction team in creating and building the Golden Bridge Vietnam.

During the construction process, contractors and architects faced numerous difficulties from the terrain and weather. Constructing a giant hand with a height of more than 25 meters on rough terrain, potentially at risk of landslides requires a significant effort and endurance of the construction team. Not only that, but the showers that appeared as soon as the mortar was laid out drained of the strength of those responsible for the construction of the Golden Bridge. However, with all hope and perseverance, after only 6 months, the hand supporting the Golden Bridge was completed.
