On Tuesday May 4 MovingCities flew from Lisbon to Brussels. The conditions for aerophotography were perfect; a windowseat and a morning flight. Leaving under a bright blue and open sky we flew North, with a excellent view on the 17 km Vasco da Gama Bridge, and landed hours later in a characteristically cloudy Belgium.
Our final set of Lisbon snapshots deals with the second half of our May 1 Lisnave expedition. Continuing to explore the Southern shore of the Lisbon Tagus estuary, we ran into deserted shipyards and collapsed warehouses.
After weeks of wandering aimlessly around in Lisbon, MovingCities met up on May 1 with the architects Paulo Goinhas & Cristina Mendonça [EMBAIXADA Arquitectura] and Simon Troufa Real. Our destination was the abandoned LISNAVE shipyard located in Almada, along the Southern border of Lisbon’s Tagus estuary.
