The Pavilhão de Portugal in Parque das Nações features a simple yet distinctive design that resembles a sheet of paper placed on top of two bricks. The overall effect is as if the concrete roof is bent under its own weight. This minimalist yet expressive construction makes the pavilion a rather interesting building to photograph. But what attracted me most were the building’s simple and strong lines accentuated by the bright Portuguese sun.
Parque das Nações covers a large area full of interesting stuff to see and do, and by the time we made it to the building, my wife and I were pretty exhausted. So I didn’t really have the energy to thoroughly “work” the pavilion, and I had to make do with a few hasty shots, including the one I post here for your viewing pleasure.
