Abstract: After a brief introduction to pedestrian bridges in Hong Kong, the paper discusses and analyzes their formal aesthetics and their effect during both day- and night-time according to three different scales in the urban landscape: the architecture, street, and city scales. The paper then concludes with a brief discussion that suggests that the bridges' effect on the urban landscape is not simply a visual phenomenon, but also a way of expressing local identity that is demonstrated visually, spatially and even culturally. The findings and conclusions also give inspirations for future pedestrian bridges and other urban infrastructures design and development.
