Thanks to distinctive architecture, many cities are quickly recognizable just by their skylines. While Lisbon doesn't have the towering skyscrapers that a massive metropolis like New York is famous for, it's striking in its own right. But buildings don't create a city's visual identity all alone — signs and lights create moods and landmarks, too. To celebrate Lisbon's aesthetic, the Museum of Design and Fashion's exhibition Graphic City at the Convento da Trindade reveals signboards and neon lights that adorned the city in the last century. Look past the (beautiful) buildings just this once to explore another facet of urban history: our graphic heritage.
