Awards: MAAT recognised by new award initiated by Abitare magazine and DesignboomPosted by ala | April 5 2017
MAAT, designed by AL_A, has been awarded The Design Prize for 2017 at a ceremony in Milan.
Initiated by Designboom and Abitare magazine, with patronage by the Milan City Council, The Design Prize is an annual award programme that celebrates excellence on a global scale.
The inaugural edition of the initiative, presented during Milan Design Week 2017, recognises both the extraordinary achievements and little sparks of beauty and delight that have emerged over the past 12 months.
MAAT – Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology is a new cultural proposal for the city of Lisbon. A museum that combines these three fields in a space for debate, discovery, critical thinking and international dialogue. An innovative project that brings together a new building designed by AL_A, which opened in October 2016, and the Tejo Power Station.
