Proposing a new relationship with the river and the wider world, the kunsthalle is a powerful yet sensitive and low-slung building that explores the convergence of contemporary art, architecture and technology Slide12: Blending structure into landscape, the kunsthalle is designed to allow visitors to walk over, under and through the building that sits beneath a gently expressed arch – one of the oldest forms in western architecture Slide14: Building on Portugal’s rich tradition of craft and ceramics, three-dimensional crackle glazed tiles articulate the façade and produce a complex surface that gives mutable readings of water, light and shadow Slide19: The overhanging roof that creates welcome shade is used to bounce sunlight off the water and into the building Slide20: The museum is made up of two buildings - an old power station alongside the new Amanda Levete-designed space - each with four galleries exhibiting a range of projects from contemporary Portuguese artists, EDP Foundation collections and international touring shows Slide27: X Congresso dos Portos de Língua Portuguesa Gare Marítima de Alcântara Slide30: Alcântara Slide31: The Lisbon port is equipped with three cruise terminals – the Alcântara Terminal, the Rocha Conde de Óbidos Terminal and the Santa Apolónia Terminal Gare Marítima de Alcântara Slide32: Access to Alcântara-Mar station Slide33: In the second floor hall of the maritime station of Alcântara one can admire magnificent indoor murals that have the river as their subject, portraying riverside activities and harbour scenes Slide35: These fresco murals, a precious example of contemporary Portuguese art, were created by one of the most unique and talented personalities of the Portuguese cultural scene, José de Almada Negreiros Slide36: José de Almada Negreiros (1893 – 1970) Slide37: José de Almada Negreiros (1893 – 1970) Slide38: José de Almada Negreiros (1893 – 1970) Slide40: José de Almada Negreiros considered the Tagus to be a very beautiful river, and regretted the fact that only foreign artists depicted it in their paintings Slide41: José de Almada Negreiros (1893 – 1970) Slide42: José de Almada Negreiros (1893 – 1970) Slide45: The dock area below 25 de Abril Bridge along the river in Alcantara between Baixa and Belem is one of the city's most pleasant places for a drink in late afternoon and with a lively atmosphere at night.  Former warehouses overlooking an attractive yachting marina have been transformed into a multitude of cosmopolitan bars, restaurants, and clubs for all tastes  Slide47: The Oriente Museum is located in the Alcântara area, in an old port warehouse from the 40s Slide48: Portugal has always had a strong connection to the Orient and this museum is dedicated to the promotion and preservation of this strong bond.
