At the extreme end of the Lisbon waterfront, on the boundary with Algés, an area that is currently under regeneration, this Foundation building is an example of the change in occupation of the riverfront land from industrial to institutional purposes. It is an outstanding example of the renewal and expansion of the city. As a centre of excellence in medical research in the field of biomedicine, it has returned to the people an important area of the waterfront zone of Pedrouços, next to Belém. The complex, which embraces the Tagus estuary, occupies an area of 65,000 square metres. It consists of three major zones: the main building with an oncological clinic and research laboratories for cancer and the neurosciences; the public spaces building (auditorium, the Darwin restaurant and the exhibition centre); and the open-air amphitheatre.
