LISBON ARCHITECTURE TRIENNALE
THIS IS CLOSE, CLOSER
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 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.

TRIENNALE MILLENNIUM BCP LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD
The Triennale Millennium BCP Lifetime Achievement Award will be selected by a team of experts appointed by the Triennale including the chief curator, from a shortlist created by over 50 influential international nominators. The award will be given based on criteria of pre-eminence in contributions to the field of architecture and spatial practice. The award will go to a person or practice whose work and ideas have been influential and continue to have a profound effect on architectural thinking and practice today.
Establishing close and meaningful relationships between different audiences and the authors and ideas of contemporary spatial practice is one of the Triennale´s key goals.This makes the existence of a multidisciplinary educational service vital. The Lisbon Architecture Triennale Educational Service is designed as an experimental lab, offering activities that complement the main programme in 2013. In doing so it mediates between the community and the substance of the Close, Closer overall project and concept. Its core values and action mechanisms are debate, thinking and creativity.
