Gardens of EDP Foundation Campus

The reconquest of Lisbon’s riverfront

Open on days:

Avenida Brasília

This public garden is open at all times and can be visited independently of the festival’s programme.

The gardens have 240 trees and 29,000 native bushes, which reflect the characteristic rich and varied vegetation along the river.

The western part of Lisbon has several historical gardens, among which we find two botanical gardens. The Gardens of EDP Foundation Campus are a great addition to all that is green and make the urban grid of that part of the city even richer.

These gardens are an aggregating element between two iconic buildings of Lisbon’s riverfront: Central Tejo (Museum of Electricity) and MAAT (Museum of Art, Architecture, and Technology). This location was designed to allow you to enjoy the view of the Tagus river.

Future Fossils

Fossils provide a record of living things that inhabited the Earth millions of years ago. Organisms that were preserved in rocks long ago, today help us understand what species existed in the past. This type of research is carried out by paleontologists. But what will future paleontologists be investigating? This creative workshop will be led by the author, marine biologist and beachcomber Ana Pêgo, who will invite us to jump into the future. Use clay and plaster to explore the world of Plasticus maritimus, an imaginary species that lived during the era of plastic...that is, today!
