Portugal Lisboa7 Oriente

(0 votes)

Gare do Oriente is one of the main transport hubs in Lisbon, Portugal. It was designed by the Spanish arquitect Santiago Calatrava and built by Necso. It was finished in 1998 for the Expo '98 world's fair in Parque das Nações, where it is located. It encompasses a Lisbon Metro station, a high-speed, commuter and regional train hub, a local, national and international bus station, a shopping centre and a police office. The station bears considerable resemblance to Calatrava's earlier Allen Lambert Galleria within Toronto's Brookfield Place. Oriente Station is one of the world's largest stations, with 75 million passengers per year which makes it as busy as Grand Central Terminal in New York. Calatrava won the competition for the design of a station for visitors to the 1998 Expo. He transformed this former industrial wasteland into an urban renewal project and in the process created an important station not only for the World's Fair visitors but travelers on intercity trains, bus lines, and metro lines. In addition, the Expo's Portuguese Pavilion by Alvaro Siza is planned to house the city government of Lisbon.
Parque das Nações (Park of Nations): the futuristic architecture of Eastern Lisbon is a complete contrast to the city's old quarters. Most of it was built by innovative architects for Expo 98, the World Fair that took place in Portugal's capital between May and September of 1998
Parque das Nações (Park of the Nations) is a Portuguese civil parish (freguesia) of the city of Lisbon a striking modern side to historic and traditional Lisbon, which extends along the north-eastern side of the Tejo Estuary. The district was rejuvenated from a desolate industrial wasteland for Expo ‘98, and has since been transformed into the centre for corporate Portugal
