A tour exploring what Portuguese contemporary architect has to offer best, in Lisbon. A journey transporting throughout several city areas, from it’s center, following the riverfront to Cascais bay, living the colors and experimenting the gastronomy.
«As luck would have it, in the Extremaduran limestone, Tagus opened a broad and majestic estuary, deep and nestled, and that after hurting the hills, it turned them into dream belvederes. And every hill where we lean is astonishment without limitation covering heaven and earth in the same grateful emotion. On the rivers clear towel light streams of a hyaline bulb drop, hidden in the blue backdrop ceiling; and the rhythmic movement of vessels, the silhouette of the houses and the framing of the far-off round the beauty of the screen, giving it reality. And whether you like it or not, the spirit surrenders to a bless of color, grandeur and harmony.»
