On the weekend of April 2010 24, Singapore unveiled yet another world’s first. This time, it’s an architectural masterpiece. A design inspired by the double helix structure of the human DNA.

Check out the curves on this baby!

Visitors flocked to the world’s first Double Helix Bridge, affectionately known as “The Helix” locally.

Covering the 280m from Marina Square / Suntec to yet another masterpiece of a building – Marina Bay Sands, the Helix drew an even larger crowd towards the evening.

As night falls, and the colored lights came on, the entire bridge sprung to life with a myriad of colors!

Against a starry night, the Helix looks almost like a space tunnel

And the colors shifted, space bridge powering up for hyper-travel?

The entire bridge looks like an art gallery, displaying canvases of light

If you have not visited it, do so soon.
