The Form of Form: 4th Lisbon Architecture Triennale

4th Lisbon Architecture Triennale
The Form of Form
6 October – 11 December 2016

The world is transformed through architecture. Hosted under the rubric The Form of Form, the fourth edition of the Lisbon Architecture Triennale will be curated by André Tavares and Diogo Seixas Lopes. It aims to readdress current trends and explore the possibility of architecture as a cultural device to produce built forms. In other words, it aims to explore the ways in which architecture transforms the world.

The programme will unfold from three core exhibitions: The Form of Form,Building Site and The World in Our Eyes. In addition, the Satellites exhibitions and a number of Associated Projects will spread out through the urban landscape of Lisbon and provoke lively conversations that the curators hope will reset the contemporary architectural debate towards construction and its social and physical impact. Parallel to the main exhibitions, the “Talk, Talk, Talk”conferences will extend the discussion further. Excellence will be awarded with the Début Award, the Lifetime Achievement Award and the Lisbon Triennale Millennium bcp Universities Award.
