With its curved shapes and 120 meters long, on the edge of Tagus river, the new building – designed by the British architect Amanda Levete – opened its doors today to the public.
“The idea of this architecture is that the building does not collides with the landscape but otherwise it appears as a natural element giving the sense of continuity and leaving the view free to the city and the river,” says the architect, who adds that the goal was to create a space where people could come not only as a museum but as a public space where they can find themselves, in a time where communication happens mainly at distance”, she says. This, is more important than the buildings it selves. ”
This is certainly an experience to enjoy in 2017. And in addition to exploring what MAAT has to show you, you always have the opportunity to discover it from a unique perspective with us.
