Chongqing is home to super-tall and super-skinny structures – and the Chinese city can now claim bragging rights to the world’s longest skybridge, open to the public.

Part of the Raffles City Chongqing development in the Yuzhong District, the horizontal Crystal skybridge, is designed by Safdie Architects to connect the rooftops of four skyscrapers.

The 300-metre-long sky bridge houses leisure and tourist facilities for the public, including a viewing deck over the city complete with a stomach-churning glass floor. The tubular structure is planted with trees and is suspended 250 metres above the ground.

The Crystal skybridge is the crowning jewel of the Raffles City Chongqing development, which includes a 220,000 sq m shopping mall, a hotel, offices and 1,400 apartments across eight towers.
