Close, Closer invites you to participate

Close, Closer initiates a discussion around contemporary architecture and invites participation.

Titled Close, Closer, the programme of the 3rd Lisbon Architecture Triennale ( 12 Sep – 15 Dec 2013) was launched on September 19 in Lisbon and internationally on Friday, 21, at the UK branch headquarters of Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation.

The curatorial guidelines and main events of Close, Closer were introduced before an audience of journalists, guests and members of the creative community in each city. One of the programme highlights is the launch of 4 special initiatives inviting participation and input from architects and other creatives: a grants scheme, a students competition, an award and an open call for associate projects.

Both presentations were led by chief curator Beatrice Galilee and the members of the curatorial team (Liam Young, Mariana Pestana and José Esparza). José Mateus, President of the Lisbon Architecture Triennale, made an opening address in Lisbon, while Manuel Henriques, the Triennale’s Executive Director, opened the session in London.
