The Museum of Architecture, Art and Technology (MAAT), which opened in Lisbon to the public this past weekend, offers 7,000 square meters of new exhibition space. British architect Amanda Levete dug down, instead of building up, in order to not block out river views and create new open space to attract the local populace, resulting in the gleaming white stone roof functioning as a public park. Visitors can gaze out over the river, famous for turning gold in the setting sun.
