|:||The MAAT - Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology presents itself as a new cultural centre in the city of Lisbon, it stands for the ambition to host national and international exhibitions with contributions by contemporary artists, architects and thinkers. Covered in 15,000 white, three-dimensional ceramic tiles, the building shows off an undulating form that connects its grand rooftop terrace with the waterside promenade. From the cantilevered terrace, visitors can take in views of the Moorish São Jorge Castle on the hillside above and the waterfront below. The MAAT's four galleries are sunken below ground level to keep the height of the building low, in keeping with the surrounding architecture, AL_A director Maximiliano Arrocet explained.|
