Vasco da Gama shopping center, Lisbon, Portugal September 2011

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.
