Close, Closer | Lisbon Architecture Triennale

2013 CLOSE, CLOSER

12 September – 15 December 2013

Opening week: 12-15 September

Chief Curator: Beatrice Galilee

Curators: José Esparza, Mariana Pestana, Liam Young
Assistant Curator: Dani Admiss

Close, Closer, the third edition of the Lisbon Architecture Triennale examines the political, technological, emotional, institutional, and critical forms of global spatial practice. Led by chief curator Beatrice Galilee and curators José Esparza, Mariana Pestana, and Liam Young, the Triennale will provide a platform for emerging practitioners and protagonists whose work and interests are far from a traditional client-architect model. The exhibitions, conferences, talks, and fringe events organised by the curatorial team should introduce to the public, and a new generation of architects, this expansive and often unchartered field.

Close, Closer will present three exhibitions, one public programme, an e-publishing series, a studentprize, and a Début Award for young architects, in addition to an established Lifetime Achievement Award. It will also introduce a number of small Crisis Buster grants that will be used to invest in longterm, civic, and entrepreneurial projects for Lisbon. Each exhibition, event, or intervention will present a different strand of experimental spatial practice.These range from strategic political or social interventions, cutting edge digital technology to fiction, memory, performance to the role of museums, journals and theorists.

For three months from September 2013, the Lisbon Architecture Triennale will be a critical platform for the plurality of contemporary spatial practice. The events and exhibitions will introduce architecture as a discipline that is not exclusive to professionals or defined only by buildings, but rather as an expanding field with which, amongst others, sociologists, scientists, curators and artists are all dynamically and radically engaging.

    Architecture | July 1, 2024

The different entrances (nursery school, primary school, leisure area) are all positioned on Moulon's pedestrian route and, as a result the group of schools establishes a close relationship with the public space.
