Curators of the Fifth Lisbon Architecture Triennale Announced
A team of nine led by Éric Lapierre has been appointed as the curatorial team of the 2019 edition.
A team led by Éric Lapierre, the architect whose award winning practice is based in Paris, has been appointed as the curatorial team of the 2019 Lisbon Architecture Triennale, which will take place from October to December 2019. The curatorial team of nine, runs the master Architecture & Experience in the school of architecture of Marne-la-Vallée (Paris), will co-operate with philosopher Sébastien Marot and is composed of a group of practitioners and theoreticians: Ambra Fabi, Giovanni Piovene, Mariabruna Fabrizi, Fosco Lucarelli, Laurent Esmilaire, Tristan Chadney and Vasco Pinelo de Melo.
The fifth Triennale will aim to define the specificity of architectural rationality in order to keep creating relevant architectures bound to the past without nostalgia or literal quotations, and linked to this eternal core of architectural theory that needs to be permanently updated and modified so as to remain the same.
The curatorial team was selected from 48 submitted proposals by 155 participants from sixteen countries. The jury was composed by the Board of Directors of Lisbon Triennale and André Tavares, Chief Curator, together with late Diogo Seixas Lopes, of Lisbon Triennale's 2016 edition.
