Lisbon is about to get a new Museum for Art, Architecture and Technology
A new landmark is about to land onto the long Lisbon waterfront; the brand new MAAT museum, situated in the Portuguese capital’s Belem district, has been taking shape and gearing up for completion later in the year, designed by London based architects AL_A.
The low-rise striking new building, sat along the city’s riverside, is designed to become Lisbon’s hot new cultural centre, the Museum for Art, Architecture and Technology (MAAT).

When MAAT – or the Museum for Art, Architecture and New Technoiegy – opens in 2016 it will change the whole infrastructure of Lisbon .
Together with Museu Coleção Berardo, Museuda Electricidade (next to MAAT) and LX Factory Alcantara & Belem will become a contemporary, multi medial, multi cultural art/design/technology hub that easily competes with Berlin, London, New York, Seoul and similar international art metropoles.
And remember. In 2016 Lisbon will host one of the biggest Web events in the world: WEB SUMMIT 2016.
