MAAT

5th of October, 1910.

Establishment of the Portuguese republic, ending more than 700 years of kings and queens.

Therefore a national holiday.

5th of October, 2016

Grand opening of the Museum Of Art, Architecture and Technology (MAAT).

Therefore an overflow of Lisboetas (aka Lisbon citizens) to the riverbanks of Belém, all eager to visit the new museum, a wave of light reflecting ceramic tiles by the Tagus river.

I was there too.

Besides the new state-of-the-art wavy building, the museum comprises the Central Tejo power station as well. Inside we can find The World of Charles and Ray Eames exhibition and the broader Utopia/Dystopia one, which includes a psycho park – an installation by artist Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster.
