A new circular bridge in Uruguay represents "a lagoon within a lagoon" according to the architect Rafael Viñoly. The bridge, which stretches across Laguna Garzón between the cities of Rocha and Maldonado, replaces a traditional raft crossing. The circular structure encourages traffic to slow down and allows drivers and pedestrians to take in the view as they cross.
