Built for the 1998 Lisbon World Exposition, the building was designed to be the thematic centerpiece of the festival and the host country’s national pavilion. The trademark canopy is a tremendous feat of technology, engineering, and modern design. It is formed by the catenary arc of steel cables draped between the porticoes which were subsequently infilled with pre-stressed concrete.

Ivan Chermayeff  (who created the iconic logos for NBC, National Geographic, the Smithsonian and many more) devised these tiles for the Lisbon Oceanarium (1996-1998), itself designed by his architect brother Peter Chermayeff.

I’ve read that we have to take the old Lisbon tram ( number 28) which connects Martim Moniz with Campo Ourique, and passes through many of the most interesting districts of Lisbon and the main tourist sights along the route. What we’ve done. And most of these pictures were taken from the tram.
