Close, Closer, the third Lisbon Architecture Triennale, will open 12 September 2013. Three major exhibitions, two competitions, a public programmme and a series of associated projects will exhibit an expanded field of contemporary architecture.
Close, Closer, the third Lisbon Architecture Triennale will put forward an alternative reading of contemporary spatial practice. For three months chief curator Beatrice Galilee and curators Liam Young, Mariana Pestana and José Esparza Chong Cuy will examine the multiple possibilities of architectural output through critical and experimental exhibitions, events, performances and debates across the city. During the Triennale, architecture will be portrayed as a living, social and artistic force, charting cultural, political, scientific and aesthetic territories. By largely excluding built-form of architectural practice and focusing on alternatives the Triennale is responding to a shifting economic and social climate in which traditional modes of architectural production are changing and where innovation is breeding fast.
