location Funchal
function hotel, mixed-use development
contributed by Franks

These projects were designed from 1966 and built in the 1970's. A 19th-century hotel was removed to build the casino. For the project, Oscar Niemeyer worked from Paris and formed a partnership with Portuguese architect Viana de Lima. Because Viana de Lima changed some things, Niemeyer does not consider the project to be fully his. Reportedly, Niemeyer never visited the island of Madeira. In 2006, the casino reopened after undergoing profound works of modernization and expansion, a total investment of six million euros.
