Study on the expansion of the Calouste Gulbenkian Park

A blueprint outlining the proposal to acquire a plot from Vasco Vilalva, following the decision to extend the annexes on the lower floor of the auditorium and create a new ballet centre.

Consequently, a number of studies and reports were developed on the location for the planned construction.

António Facco Viana Barreto and Gonçalo Ribeiro Telles were consulted on the possible expansion of the park.

Theiradvice resulted in a document [i], dated March 9, 1966, signed by Gonçalo Ribeiro Telles and the architect Sotto-Mayor de Almeida, clearly paving the way forward.
