‘xylophone bridge’ by yeon jae won and soo jeong heo from korea is one of the shortlisted
design entries from more than 3000 participants in our recent designboom competition,
‘seoul cycle design competition 2010‘, organized in collaboration with seoul design foundation.
designers’ own words:
‘recently, as bike road has been constructed on bridges in seoul, use of the road has increased
by many riders. when you across the bridge, ‘xylophone road’ will give a unique experience
that you can feel only in seoul.’
