“Sometimes it's like someone took a knife baby
Edgy and dull and cut a six inch valley
Through the middle of my skull”
I’m On Fire 🎧 Bruce Springsteen [a spirit of place: stories of art, love and intimacy]
Gare do Oriente Station, Lisbon, Portugal
～by Spanish designer Santiago Calatrava
The Lisbon Orient Station was constructed as part of the Expo 98 building program and is styled in an ultra modern reflection of gothic architecture.
Santiago Calatrava created a beautiful daylit building topped with a leaf-like canopy that looks lighter than air.
The structure is covered only with glass, so daylight can illuminate the station during the day, and interior lights provide an ethereal glow at night.
