Like this one from all the way from The Malaysian Online about the reopening of MAAT on Wednesday.
After an initial opening in October, MAAT — the Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology — in Lisbon reopens to the public on March 22 with two exhibitions that will show off the entirety of the new museum building.
Designed by the architecture and design studio AL_A, the museum is housed in a brand-new, low-slung structure that joins a recently renovated power station, together making up a greater art campus.
