Expo 98 was the first world exhibition that has created not only a temporary exhibition but also an urban, inhabitable, densely-used space. Among its greatest qualities are the public spaces and gardens, designed by the architects João Gomes da Silva, João Ferreira Nunes and Ribeiro Teles, among others. Of reference are the buildings constructed for the event, such as the Pavilion of Portugal by Álvaro Siza, the Pavilion of Knowledge by the architect João Luís Carrilho da Graça, and Gare do Oriente (Railway Station) by the architect Santiago de Calatrava. Other facilities have undergone recent extensions, such as the Oceanarium by the architect Peter Chermayeff, with the extension by the architect Pedro Campos Costa. Outside the enclosure there is also high quality housing, examples of which are the housing complexes by the Aires Mateus and Promontório architecture firms.
