Brasilia wonders: JK bridge

November 12, 2010 | By More

I don’t know whether the JK bridge is the most beautiful bridge in the world – an accolade it received from a professional organization not long ago. But it is, without a doubt, one of the shiniest stars in the architectural firmament that is Brasilia. Alexandre Chan created a bridge that was opened as recently as 2002.

Three asymmetric archs support the bridge and create a visual ballet that becomes more evident as you drive across the bridge.

Right before the bridge, coming from the Praça dos Três Poderes, there is a small parking space where you’ll be able to stop your car and take a good picture of the bridge. You can walk across the bridge should you want to.
