This impressive work of the capital’s architecture, conceived by Vittorio Gregotti and Manuel Salgado, was built to host the Portuguese Presidency of the European Union in 1992. It would later become a museum, as well as a show and exhibit centre. It covers the eastern side of Empire Square. Its cubic volumes and garden-like terrace provide an interesting contrast with the long Jerónimos façade. You will find here restaurants, a terrace, bookshops and other prestigious shops. More recently, the Design Museum presenting the private collection of Francisco Capelo and the Verardo Modern Art Collection settled here.
