As the architect said “this is a museum about future and not about the past. Lisbon is, truly, a city of the world”. This place hasn’t straight lines, it is extensive, which makes it a dynamic and innovative building and highlight its futuristic look. Inside there are four distinct spaces: Oval, Main Gallery, Project Room and Video Room.
