MAS is new museum in Antwerp, which opened in May 2011. The architecture is based on the stacking of containers, which is inspired by the fact that Antwerp is one of the biggest ports in the world. The museum hosts several exhibitions on the history of Antwerp. The museum is 62 meter high, and has a 360 degree view over the city. The special shape of the glass symbolizes the waves on the sea, and gives the very green-blueish color. I doubted if I should take decrease the saturation of this color, but finally decided to leave it in. When I saw this elderly lady sitting in the chair overlooking the city, the first word which came to mind was "history".
