The-Hovenring-Worlds-First-Suspended-Bicycle-Roundabout-1

The Hovenring, as its known, means ‘Ring of the Hovens.’ It’s just an ode to the surrounding towns, Eindhoven, Veldhoven, and Meerhoven. Ipy Delft designed this architectural milestone which features a 230-foot tall central pylon, 1,000-ton steel circular bridge deck, and 24 steel cables. Aluminum lamellas, translucent sheeting, tube lighting, and LEDs light up the Hovenring at night.
