Set on the banks of the Tagus River, Lisbon‘s impressive new Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology (MAAT) opened to the public today, substantially boosting the city’s architectural credentials. Delivered by Amanda Levete Architects and funded by energy giant EDP Foundation, the museum’s development – which ties together a red-brick former power station and a curvaceous glass structure – coincides with Lisbon’s fourth Architecture Triennale and is part of a bigger revamp within the Belém district that puts the area firmly back on the city map. Expect blockbuster exhibitions within MAAT’s eight exhibition spaces as well as cinema screenings and world-class cultural events as the museum’s shimmering form and riverside location places it as a must-visit within the city.

For more information on forthcoming events, visit MAAT‘s website.
