#151 - My Neighborhood II

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting


Looking at the oposite side of Av. José Malhoa (Yesterdays photo) you see the Twin Towers.

"This complex is the most known work of foirmer architect Olga Quintanilha, who unfortunately died on september the 13th 2005.

This 70.000 square meters complex is used for commerce and habitation, is based at Sete Rios and is inserted between Avenida Jose Malhoa and Rua de Campolide intersection.

Very polemic as it was the first complex to raise higher than 25 floors with its 28 floors, with the aproval of former district president João Soares.

On the lower part you can partially see the small shopping center which has 2 rooms for cinema, small (but very expensive) stores and an area with fast food restaurants and others." [*]

The towers give you that sensation of "nothingness" (I made a new English word)... standing near something that huuuuge!
