| Architecture | Calatrava’s Lisbon pt 1

Calatrava’s structures blew me away. The architect is a master of his style. The lines of the Gare do Oriente were sublime. There is a purity about it that stands it’s ground amidst all the concrete.

Above photographs were taken with my Polaroid Spectra camera using Impossible Project’s Silver Shade film. I am so happy with how they turned out.

Hiro’s photos above show lithe looking pillars and how they mimic palm trees. It is almost as though the station were an oasis against the bright Lisbon sky.

I have gained a new respect for Calatrava. It is not often that one encounters the work of an individual skilled in architecture AND structural engineering. Boy oh boy…how wonderful an experience it was.
