Photographer's Note

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.
