Description:

This research and diagnostic centre, located in Lisbon, is a state-of-the art facility guided by some of the best scientists in the world today. the site is a truly extraordinary sweep of land, just where the river joins the Atlantic Ocean – the point from which Henry the Navigator, Vasco da Gama and the other great Portuguese pioneers left on their journeys into the unknown.

The 3 units that constitute the project (the largest for the doctors and scientists, the second for theatre, the exhibition hall, the foundation offices etc., and the third is an open-air amphitheatre for the city) have been arranged to create a 125m long pathway leading diagonally across the site, towards the open seas.
