The Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology (MAAT) is a project of the EDP Foundation, and was designed by British architect Amanda Levete. It has almost 3000 square meters for exhibitions and events, and is directed by the former curator of contemporary architecture of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York, Pedro Gadanho, who says that this museum in Lisbon is unique in the world, since no other crosses the disciplines of art, architecture and technology. It presents the relationship between art and new technologies, through contemporary and international programming.
It also has a restaurant looking out to 25 de Abril Bridge, and it’s possible to walk over the undulating shell-shaped building of curved lines. The exterior staircase descends into the water, creating a large public space.
