> Guided Tour - Exhibition Lanscape as architecture
Landscape as Architecture is an exhibition based on the collaborations between the architects Paulo David (b. Funchal, 1959) and João Gomes da Silva (b. Lisbon, 1962) and seeks to explore the different ways in which the landscape is developed as a place that is constructed by architecture. Based on this exhibition visitors will be invited to discover this landscapes. These visits will encourage discussion and the sharing of ideas and perceptions

> CCB – A General Reading of the Building

The CCB Building, designed by the architects Vitorio Gregotti and Manuel Salgado, is a unique meeting point in the city of Lisbon. By bringing together exhibitions, concerts, shows, meetings, shops and services, it has itself become a micro-city. This tour looks at the dynamics of the centre’s spaces and their different functions, explaining the building to participants through the history of its location, the surrounding landscape and the intentions of the team of architects who designed it.

> CCB – A City by the Riverside
This tour takes a look at the multiple relations that the CCB has established with its surrounding area. Can we speak of a historical and architectural triangle in Belém? What formal and aesthetic relations can we establish between the Centro Cultural de Belém, the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos and the different references to the exhibition of Salazar’s New State?

> Pre-Concert Tour €2 (maximum of 25 participants)
A guided tour of the backstage area of the Main Auditorium of the CCB Concert Centre.
Spectators are invited to go behind the scenes an hour before the start of the concert, where they will have the chance to discover and understand the structure that, despite being hidden from the audience, makes the whole concert possible: people, equipment, performers. By revealing to the audience quite unusual and unique areas and stories, which otherwise would be inaccessible to them, we hope to be able to simultaneously disseminate and enhance the interest of the programme provided by the CCB.
