Museum for Art, Architecture and Technology

Belem
Contemporary Art Museum

The October 2017 opening of this riverside museum, designed by London-based architect Amanda Levete, marks a major moment in the modernization of the neighborhood of Belem, previously known only for its historic monuments. Funded by EDP, Portugal’s biggest energy company, MAAT’s campus is so expansive it would wise to dedicate at least half a day to discover all of its riches. Levete’s curvy building received a lot of buzz prior to opening, but equally alluring is the transformation of the old Tejo Power Station. From the outside, it’s a red brick factory, but its interiors have been reimagined into stark galleries hosting exhibitions for the likes of Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster and Charles and Ray Eames. But MAAT also organizes a variety of events, including performances and workshops.
