From Alvalade neighbourhood to the Campo Grande main transport station we will walk this time in a continuous urban space. The relevance of this walk for the explanation of the post-metropolitan Lisbon is not only in the singularity of the project and process of construction of the Alvalade’s neighborhood, but also in the construction of cultural, institutional and governmental important structures for the organization of the metropolitan functions. Going through this space we will approach the issue of centrality by connecting how this new urban fabric, reshaped since the beginning of the XX century, progressively developed a national character by these unique institution buildings at a national and regional scale. This is an important site to understand the centralization of power, administration and culture in Lisbon’s borders. The idea of big city much developed during the XX century remains present here, where public policies for a more inclusive and equitable urban space don’t seem to be a social, political or urban goal.
The visits are free.
