MAAT is the new cultural project for the city of Lisbon. It’s a museum where these three areas - Art, Architecture and Technology - intertwine within a space of debate, discovery, critical thinking and international dialogue. It’s an innovative project which establishes a connection between the new building, designed by Amanda Levete Architects’ studio and the Tejo Power Station, one of Portugal’s most prominent examples of industrial architecture from the first half of the 20th century, and one of the most visited museums in the country.

Palace of Queluz is a Portuguese 18th-century palace.
