MAAT - LISBON'S MUSEUM OF ART ARCHITECTURE & TECHNOLOGY

Lisbon's newest museum opened recently and I've been there a couple of times now to photograph it and see how it would work as a location for street workshops.  I've walked and cycled past the site many times since it's been under construction and it always looked as though it was going to be a fascinating building.  The sweeping curve of the roof, and it's location right next to the Tejo river within sight of the 25 April bridge really are perfect for photography, and facing south it works both as a sunrise and sunset location.

It gets pretty busy, so it's a great place to photograph people, but also it works well for long exposures with moving clouds, or to do close up architectural abstracts.  It's a great place to shoot, and somewhere I'll be returning to in future
