Mirante 9 de Julho

São Paulo

Behind MASP, this formerly abandoned architectural bridge, that sat dormant for 60 years across one of the city's most important avenues, was reopened in 2015. It now houses a Suplicy cafe and hosts rotating art exhibitions, musical performances and open-air film screenings.
