Lisbon Architecture Triennale 2019 announces Éric Lapierre as chief curator


Now in its 5th edition, the Lisbon Architecture Triennale hopes to further expand their 2016 theme ‘The Form of Form’ directed by André Tavares and Diogo Seixas Lopes. The previous edition featured 178 participants from 38 countries with an extensive programme with 121 events that received wide critical acclaim across the board.

The Lapierre and his curatorial team, runs the Master of Architecture and Experience at the School of Architecture in Marne-la-Vallée (Paris). They will work in collaboration with philosopher Sébastien Marot, as well as highly qualified practitioners and theoreticians, such as Ambra Fabi, Giovanni Piovene, Mariabruna Fabrizi, Fosco Lucarelli, Laurent Esmilaire, Tristan Chadney and Vasco Pinelo de Melo.

The conceptual framework of the 5th Lisbon Architecture Triennale beautifully frames the intention of contemporary architecture and hopes to create a lasting reflective context for architecture. “In order to try overcoming these typical dead ends of post-truth architecture, this proposal wishes to state that high architecture has always been based on a specific rationality. This rationality is what allows buildings to communicate clear as well as obscure but always understandable meanings through the poetics of architecture. The 5th 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,” says the festival mandate.
