Photographer's Note

Gare do Oriente is one of the main transport hubs in Lisbon, Portugal. It was designed by Santiago Calatrava and built by Necso. It was finished in 1998 for the Expo '98 world's fair in Parque das Na鋏es, where it is located.

It encompasses a Lisbon Metro station, a high-speed, commuter and regional train hub, a local, national and international bus station, a shopping centre and a police office.

The station bears considerable resemblance to Calatrava's earlier Allen Lambert Galleria within Toronto's Brookfield Place.

Oriente Station is one of the world's largest stations, with 75 milion passengers per year which makes it as busy as Grand Central Terminal in New York.
