The total length of Zhuoshui Covered Bridge is 658m. We can appreciate it divided into four parts due to its different forms and time of construction. The first part is “Zhuoshui Huaiyuan”, with the length of 310m. There is a tower pavilion on the bridge, and the central garret locates at the highest point. The whole bridge body has used multiple methods such as double eaves, Xieding, Tujia Dianjiangtai, rising eaves and multi-layer folding to create a unified and varied form of bridge body, thus the molding is especially simple and elegant. The second part of Zhuoshui Covered Bridge is Tangzhong Changyun with the length of 105m. The height of the central belfry is 26m and can be divided into four floors. This part is composed of corridors and belfry and there is a high belfry with double eaves and Xieding at the central location, hanging like a bronze bell of Tang dynasty. The third part is Rainbow Fubo with the length of 97m. This bridge crosses Puhua River, with a ladder-shaped body over single arches. It has graceful lines like a brilliant rainbow. The fourth part is Puhua Flying Dragon with the length of 146m which combines bending roofs and modern grilling piers. The facade is created using the whole shape of dragon as its prototype, a metaphor that a dragon born in the river flying across the river.
The whole Zhuoshui Covered Bridge is not only the world’s longest bridge to realize a combination of tradition and modern, Chinese-style and Europe-style, eastern architecture aesthetics and western architecture aesthetics in terms of shapes, structure and techniques, but is more a completely new structure which combines traditional wood bridge and the use of laminated wood and steel frame to realize a new exploration and attempt on architecture.
