This is part of the façade of the recently opened Lisbon Casino, located at the Nations Park (Parque das Nações -http://www.parquedasnacoes.pt/inicio.asp?V=0&L=en), where Expo'98 took place.
"Urban and environmental renewal for EXPO '98, as a large-scale undertaking, was a unique opportunity to apply innovative concepts in building tomorrow's cities, with the accent on respecting the environment.
The choices made, and how they become a reality, were part of an integrated environmental plan for Parque EXPO aimed at restoring an area which had become environmentally dysfunctional - reclaiming the land, making it attractive to the city and its people once again."

This is true, in fact this area was restored extremelly well and this is in fact a very agreeable area of the city where people like to go and have great moments of relaxation and pleasure, close to river Tejo and Vasco da Gama bridge.

Interesting reflective shot at the casino, Paulo. The details seen in the glass frontage of the building are rendered quite vividly and colorful, and I like how just the walking couple is seen "for real" whereas all other elements are in the reflection only. Well seen and quite pleasant.

Fascinating, Paulo! Nice idea, the colors in reflection are great, and I find myself looking for your own reflection there in the window!
Keep up the good work!
