Henderson Waves is the highest footbridge in Singapore, at just over 36 metres above the road. Designed by RSP Architects Planners & Engineers (Pte) Ltd and IJP Corporation Ltd, UK, for the Urban Redevelopment Board of Singapore it joins Mt Faber to the Telok Blangah Hill Park. The hills are part of the Southern Ridges Walk, a hiking trail that takes you through three major parks: Kent Ridge Park, Telok Blangah Hill Park and Mount Faber Park, (I can assure you that given the heat and humidity we didn’t hike the trail).
We were interested in sketching this modern marvel. It’s deck is made of balau wood and the seating areas along the bridge provide a suitably challenging set of curves for a sketcher to tackle. On this typically hot and humid day it also had the best breezes going.
