Location: Belem, Lisboa (20 m)      by: Christoph Seger

The Champalimaud Foundation Research Institute in Lisboa also known as "Champalimaud Centre for the Unknown" is dedicated to allow a deeper insight into oncology and neurosciences (www.neuro.fchampalimaud.org/en/). It was opened in October 2010 and was designed by the Indian star-architect Charles Correa (www.e-architect.co.uk/portugal/champalimaud_foundation.htm).

I loveed strolling around the centers public gardens, many stairways and pathways allowed interesting views. I quote Correa from the internet source given above:
“At the end of the ramp are two stone monoliths, straight from the quarry, as primordial as Stonehenge. When you reach the highest point, you begin to see a large body of water – which seemingly connects to the ocean beyond. In the centre of this water body, just below the surface of the water, is an oval shaped sculpture - made of stainless steel and slightly convex, so that it reflects the blue sky and passing clouds above.”

I loved the combination of 21st century architecture and the quite old olive tree flanking an out-side amphitheater.

Sehr schön gemacht, das Gebäude ist wirklich faszinierend und auch gar nicht so leicht in ein Pano zu packen.

Dachte, es sei eine hochpräzise Modellaufnahme eines Architekten! ;- ))
Schön, dass Du uns Sachen "aus aller Welt" zeigst!
