This bridge with a view takes you to the entrance of the Portland Japanese Garden. The bridge’s glass walls bring you closer to the natural world beneath you. Straight lines contrast with the curves and textures of the surrounding forest. When you ascend the stairs and exit the path, you’ll enter the Cultural Center. With its minimalistic design, it stands out yet blends in at the same time.

Interesting contrast between the modern bridge and more traditional building beyond
Yes, the architect, Kengo Kuma, tried to incorporate traditional Japanese design into more energy efficient buildings at the Center, completed in 2017.
