The MAS, (Museum on the Stream) in Antwerp has opened this spring and is a real eyecatcher.
The red towers of the MAS are covered with hand-cut Indian stone and the curved glass panels are at least six meters high. The MAS is designed as a giant storehouse with stacked containers or "boxes". These museum boxes are stacked in such a way that they create a spiral tower. As you ascend, you get a constantly changing view of the city. On the roof you get a 360 o panorama over Antwerp.
You have a free walk upstairs to the tenth floor which we did, we were more interested in the building than the museum, so we will visit the museum-collections an other time.
The view over Antwerp was not so good, we had a bit strange weather, very warm but a bit misty.
