CentroCultural de Belém (CCB)

 

The construction of CentroCultural de Belém was decided in 1988 to welcome and accommodate the PortugueseEuropean Union Presidency, in 1992, remaining subsequently as a core facilityfor cultural and leisure activities.

 

It was decided to build CCB in1988. The complex comprises a centre for temporary exhibitions which since 2006has housed the Berardo Museum, a module with multipurpose rooms, an auditoriumfor symphonic music and opera performances and another geared to the performingarts, as well as a conference centre that hosted Portugal's Presidency of theEuropean Union in 1992. The building was designed by the architects VittorioGregotti (Italy) and Manuel Salgado (Portugal), today has a strong cultural programmeand plays important part as a Conference Centre. It has been classified since2002 as a monument of public interest.

 

An international architecturalcompetition was held. 6 out of the 57 proposals received have been invited todevelop a preliminary project. The selected proposal belonged to the architectsconsortium Vittorio Gregotti (Italy) and Manuel Salgado (Portugal). Theydesigned the construction of five modules – Conference Centre, Performing ArtsCentre, Exhibition Centre, Hotel Zone and Complementary Equipment. Only thefirst ones were raised, namely, the Conference Centre, the Performing ArtsCentre and the Exhibition Centre.

This building can beseen as a small city with gardens, lakes, bridges, slopes, and small hiddenplaces, where the nobility of the Museum Square stands out.
