Pedestrians are delighted. Since October 14th 2014, Ab-o-Atash and Taleghani parks, from west to east, are connected by the largest pedestrian bridge, the Tabiat Bridge – which means “nature” in Iranian.
3 levels, designed by architect Leila Araghian, co-founder of Diba company. This bridge does not only connect one side to one other. The Tabiat Bridge is designed as a place to live, the first level holds a coffee shop, the second one is thought as a place of passage, for people who are walking, skating (to read : our article on skateboarding in Iran), riding on a horse carriage. The third level is dedicated to contemplation, to enjoy the magnificent Tehran’s panorama offered by the bridge.
Built in less than two years, the Tabiat Bridge weighs more than 2,000 tons, needed more than 14,000 pieces of steel in different sizes, and is built over 40 meters above the ground. A symbol for the mayor of Tehran, which sees in it the evolution of the city, that connects nature, tourism and Tehran people everyday life.
