The building is located near the MacArthur Causeway, and its front façade is oriented towards the bay. It includes 32,000 square feet of galleries, shops, educational facilities, plazas and gardens. Clusters of suspended columns are covered in vegetation that connects the building with the environment.

PAMM opened its doors with the first major international exhibition on Chinese artist Ai Weiwei as well as works by Cuban painter Amelia Pelaez, and Haiti-born artist Edouard Duval-Carrie. Two levels will be occupied by some of the 1800 pieces from the museum’s permanent collection, while special shows will take place downstairs on the ground floor. The uppermost level will be dedicated to educational content. All of the exhibitions are currently installed, and the contractors are finalizing the landscaping and installing the vertical gardens.
