Av. Brasília, Central Tejo1300-598 Lisboa
Built right on the bank of the Tagus river, MAAT – Museu de Arte, Arquitetura e Tecnologia (Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology) is this year's big novelty in the cultural spaces' scene of Lisbon. This fabulous new design of Fundação EDP, authored by British architect Amanda Levete, bets on an organic shape creating a natural connection between the city and the river. It is located right next to Museu da Eletricidade (Central Tejo) – Museum of Electricity – and is scheduled to open in the summer. The façade alone is a pretext for a visit, it borrows the light of Lisbon and reflects it. Directed by Pedro Gadanho, former curator of MoMA, it will feature different exhibition halls, an educational service, art reserves, an auditorium, spaces for artistic residencies and a restaurant.
