Escolha arquitectura

The recently launched programme Escolha Arquitectura (Choose Architecture) aims at promoting a wider comprehension of the discipline with a special focus on architecture competitions as a way to debate ideas about the city. The Lisbon Architecture Triennale supports this programme by promoting it through its network.  

The platform presented “Concursos Temáticos: Duas Casas nas Ilhas Selvagens, Madeira” (Themed competitions: Two houses at Selvagens islands in Madeira) to trigger the discussion around the public importance of architecture competitions. Also within this subject it will be launched the “Serviço de Concursos” (Competitions' service), to simplify the competition's processes and serve as a link between architects and promoters.

To make architecture closer to the general public, Escolha Arquitectura will also promote a series of initiatives in 2016 such as: an architects directory and a simulator of the construction cost.

The programme is also planning an exhibition named “Arquitectura em Concurso” (Architecture in Competition), and the launch of a series of documental videos that emphasize the importance of architecture in people's lives.
