Venue

Thank you all for making the Lisbon symposium possible and for making it so truly memorable!

The main venue is the CONFERENCE CENTRE of CALOUSTE GULBENKIAN FOUNDATION , which will host the three full days of plenary and technical sessions. The pre-conference WORKSHOPS and the OPENING CEREMONY will be held at INSTITUTO SUPERIOR TECNICO – ALAMEDA CAMPUS. These two sites are located in the city centre in walking distance to each other. They are both considered landmarks in the frame of Portuguese modern architecture.

ALAMEDA CAMPUS opened in 1937. The project was developed by Porfirio Pardal Monteiro, who designs for the first time, a university campus in Portugal, as an autonomous entity, fully walled. A central boulevard, accessed by a large and impressive staircase links the main entrance to the front of the main building and provides indirect access to six building clusters organized according to a faculty/related departmental structure. From late 1969 up to now, some of the existing buildings have been extended and new ones were built in the precinct. Currently it serves a population of about 12,000 users: 10,500 students, 1,000 faculty teachers and researchers and 500 administrative staff.

The PRE-CONFERENCE WORKSHOPS will take place in the Civil Eng., Architecture and GeoResources departmental building.

The OPENING SESSION will take place in the CEREMONIAL HALL (SALÃO NOBRE), located in the main building.

GULBENKIAN FOUNDATION headquarters opened in 1969. The project was developed by a team of Portuguese architects (Alberto Pessoa, Pedro Cid, Ruy d’Athouguia) and landscape architects (António Viana Barreto and Gonçalo Ribeiro Teles) with Sir Leslie Martin serving as a consultant and advisory board member. In 1979, Sir Leslie Martin was invited to design the Modern Art Center José de Azeredo Perdigão at one end of the park. This complex opened in 1983 and consists of a museum and an education centre.

The PLENARY AND TECHNICAL SESSIONS will take place in CONFERENCE CENTRE, located in the main building complex, where the administrative services, the museum and the art library, the temporary exhibitions galleries and the main auditorium are concentrated.
