Henderson Waves, jointly designed by RSP Architects, Planners & Engineers and IJP Corporation, is Singapore's highest pedestrian bridge.

Standing at 36 meters above the ground, this proves an iconic sculptural leap spanning across Singapore's Henderson Road.

Based on the principal of parametric design, this bridge’s three-dimensional surface integrates structure and form in a unique wave that undulates dramatically over and under the bridge deck.

With the sensitive use of natural organic shapes and materials such as wood and steel, this structure helps unite the city's southern ridges, which are comprised of a nine-kilometer chain of green open spaces spanning the rolling hills of Mount Faber Park, Telok Blangah Hill
Park and Kent Ridge Park before ending at West Coast Park.
