BIG explains that The Twist is not just a bridge, it spans into several traditional categories: a bridge, a museum, an inhabitable sculpture. As a bridge, The Twist reconfigures the sculpture park into a journey through the park in a continuous loop. As a museum, The Twist connects two spaces, an introverted vertical gallery and an extraverted horizontal gallery with awesome panoramic views across the river. As an inhabitable space, it is created through the direct translation between these two galleries.

The Twist wants to provide us with a new challenge to exhibit artists and artworks to engage with.
