Architects have designed an innovative bridge that gives travelers the chance to soak up the stunning view as well as getting them across the water.
Before Rafael Vinoly Architects built the $11 million Laguna Garzon bridge in Uruguay, the only way travelers could take a glimpse of the blue lagoon was via a raft crossing.
But now, thanks to the circular shape of the bridge, drivers can slow down and take in the beauty of the lake.
More than 1,000 vehicles can now cross the lagoon each day.
$10 million of the project was funded by Argentinian real-estate developer Eduardo Constantini, reports Tech Insider.
Mr Constantini said: “It is an iconic architectural piece that will be a catalytic factor in driving the development of Rocha’s coastline.
“Just 35% of the stretch between the two lagoons can be developed and 50% must be devoted to green areas.”
He hopes the bridge will attract tourists to the lagoon and it will provide a link between the counties of Rocha, which remains mainly untouched, and Maldonado, which is developed.
