The East Station is situated at a distance of 5 km from the heart of the old city of Lisbon and was designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava.



Santiago Calatrava: East Station, Lisbon Technical experience and the persuasion of the importance of following and respecting the nature of materials (Natura mater et magistra) saw to it that the cement was treated as a soft and malleable material and that the steel was bent into fluid and spontaneous shapes.
The language of geometry and that of the structure have been bonded by patient and personal research study.
The plan forms are organised rhythmically and evoke an abstract portrayal of the organic world.

The frames, like trees, support transparent glass roofing that provides both shelter from the weather and a scenic view over the EXPO area.
At night the internal lighting makes the building even more permeable, making it even more fascinating by enhancing its lightness.
