Lisbon Architecture Triennale launches three special edition digital publications. These ebooks, available online (Amazon, Apple Store), were commissioned as part of the Triennale’s third edition, Close, Closer, which ran from September to December 2013 and presented the plurality of contemporary spatial practice through experimental exhibitions, civic initiatives and public programmes.

Each editor has commissioned new work and original essays by internationally acclaimed authors, critics, photographers, theorists and practitioners.
