Brutalist & Modernist Architecture in Lisbon, Portugal

Last month I had a trip to Lisbon, Portugal. Below are some brutalist / Modernist architectures I visited during the trip.


📍

Panorâmico de Monsanto

Location: 38.728587, -9.184479

Year: 1968

Architect: Chaves Costa


Graffitied, abandoned high-end restaurant that's now a popular spot for panoramic views over Lisbon. Lisbon’s beloved secret viewpoint is a graffiti- and art-plastered building that was once an exclusive high-society restaurant in the late 1960s. A series of bad investment decisions led to its abandonment from 2001 – although, considering the graffiti covering the walls top to bottom, it wasn’t left unvisited. It's now reopened and wandering its winding halls and staircases feels like exploring a ghost town.

Church Sagrado Coração

Location: 38.724786, -9.147176

Year: 1961-1970

Architect: Nuno Teotonio Pereira, Nuno Portas


“ It can be difficult to identify this massive building as a church when passing due to its unusual architecture. The church was designed by architects Nuno Portas and Nuno Teotónio Pereira between 1962 and 1970. When inside, the designs make visitors feel as though they are getting closer to the spiritual essence of existence. The interior is filled with clear-cut lines, bold concrete, soft light, and lots of open space. The church is definitely worth visiting twice, once during the day, and again after sunset to enjoy the interior amid different lightning.”
