Designed by the Spanish arquitect Santiago Calatrava to the Lisbon Expo ’98, the Lisbon Orient Station’s complex is covered by a structure similar to a fishing net, since the Expo’s main theme was the Portuguese Discoveries. It is one of the most important stations of the city, it’s connected to the subway and it even has a floor to temporary events.

Allen Lambert Galleria
The building is similar to Calatrava’s Allen Lambert Galleria, in Toronto, and has gothic traces as well. The Lisbon Orient Station is one of the the world’s largest stations, with 75 million passengers per year, almost as busy as the Grand Central Terminal in New York.
