Expo ’98

From a day of touring Lisbon’s oldest district to a day visiting a decidedly different area - the Parque das Nações site in North East Lisbon - home of the Expo ’98.

A wide angle photo looking down an interior staircase to the front door of a building. The staircase is steep, and on either side the walls are covered to shoulder height with blue and white patterned tiles.
Looking up at skylight windows in a train station. The ceiling is cast concrete, and the lights are made from a grid of glass tiles.

A large fountain in the centre of the frame on a sunny day. The fountain is made from a large circular cone shape, purple-red at the top, fading to red at the bottom.
Looking sideways at a road and bicycle path. In the background a white fence blocks the view, but is partially broken revealing some tall grass behind.
White steel beams in the shape of rectangles 50′ tall are spaced regularly 20′ appart. The camera looks up from the corner at the regular white grid this makes against the blue sky.
Looking up at a series of angled windows from a lookout.

Looking directly up the Torre Galp from just inside the structure. The structure is painted in a light green-blue colour and made of many steel beams. On the right a walkway arcs around the frame.

The camera looks through a window from outside to the interior of a room. In the centre of the room a large model of an octopus is suspended from the ceiling.
A group of tall marble statues are arranged in a tight grid and surrounded by tall fencing. They’re lit from one side by a streetlamp.
