Vasco da Gama shopping center, Lisbon, Portugal

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The Vasco da Gama Mall stands across the Gare do Oriente station in Lisbon Portugal. It includes 200 stores, a theater, and a large food court.

The building is part of a large project for Lisbon by Santiago Calatrava. The glass barrel vault reflects the form of the Gare do Oriente, a slightly organic Spanish form. It also expresses the same strictly organized symmetry and opposition of light versus solid. Walkways fly across the center spine, enforcing the multi-layered nature of this entire city area.
