It's simple, because it was designed by Niemeyer, I am not an architect, but if you are one and if you ever come to Brazil, you must see all the work he did for the country, so be prepared to travel a lot inside the country

The JK Bridge, named after the president, Juscelino Kubitschek, has a spectacular design that once explained to me has even more meaning. Our Brazilian friends say the bridge represents a skipping stone as it crosses the waters. If you take another look at it you will see it is not just a series of arches but rather it turns and...

Beuatiful design lacks maintenance and care. Have a lot of potential. You can park next to the bridge to look at it or take photos.

After visiting the central area of Brasília, and its monumental buildings, the lake Paranoá is the place to regain a nature perspective from the Brazilian capital. And the JK bridge is a great start to do that. One cuold rent a bike, a kaiak, a boat or just walk by the bridge. A good time to do that is early... More

Get a bicycle and cycle around the lake, crossing the bridge coming from the Eixo and then circling around the lake clockwise. It's worth it. The bridge is probably not the most beautiful bridge in the world, although some think so, it is quite pleasant.

The JK Bridge is the newest of the three bridges over Lake Paranoá, on its south side. It connects the block number 26 (QI 26) of the neighborhood called Lago Sul (South Lake) to the central region of the city, near the Training Center of the Bank of Brazil, a region full of good restaurants. Going straight, you arrive to... More

go to the far side from the city centre and look back at this bridge it is much more impressive . The lake is lovely too and helps to create that feeling of spaciousness that Brasilia has
