The MAAT, which recently celebrated its first year after opening, is one of the 2017 Award of Merit winners.
The Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology is one of the big winners of the Award of Merit 2017 from the European Steel Design Awards 2017, the most important contest of the steel sector.
Every two years, this sector awards promoters, constructors and builders, responsible for building the most emblematic metallic structure constructions across Europe.
Thus, the "Award of Merit 2017" is dedicated to all those involved in the construction of the project, in which bysteel, the dst group company, was responsible for the design and construction of MAAT's metallic structure.
The award ceremony took place in September, in Copenhagen, Denmark, during the Eurosteel Conference, the "ECCS Annual Meeting".
Besides the "Award of Merit 2017", the MAAT also received the building of the year award, in the World Architecture Festival, in the category Culture.
For José Teixeira, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the dst group, the award "confirms bysteel's quality and efficiency, and represents the rigour, safety and refined innovation used in all its work projects, a differentiating factor in the national and international market".
