Rainbow Bridge

Chang’an Jie
Rainbow Bridge. What is it? There are three versions of this landmark around the city. Two sit at the eastern and western ends of Chang’an Jie. The other, a later replica, is in Wangjing, and calls for the use of ‘wisdom to create wealth in Wangjing’. The expert opinion: ‘Rainbow Bridge appears to be an amalgamation of three separate generations of public signage. There is a neo-70s socialist aesthetic evoked in the faded rainbow sections, 1980s-style chunky lettering and the feel of expired hi-tech enterprises from the boom years of the 1990s.’ Billy Tang, curatorial director, Magician Space. Time Out says: An amalgamation of three generations of Gay Pride events, more like.
