Trienal de Arquitectura de Lisboa


To reinforce the Lisbon Architecture Triennale’s on-going commitment to generate debate, collaboration across geographic, ideological and disciplinary boundaries, we’ve been publishing books with different partners and exploring various formats over the years since 2007.

Aiming a wider dissemination of architectural contemporary discourse, our publications constitute a long-term legacy having different roles: a newspaper as the Portuguese Official Representation at Venice Architecture Biennale, a book as part of the showcase narrative and a compilation as complement of our exhibitions.

The series of publications, that ranges from print and online, is linked to our regular activity since 2007 is the result of our overall efforts to catalyse, foster and promote architectural thinking and practice. As a dissemination platform for contemporary discourse and research on architecture and the built environment, it explores themes from different perspectives, as well as it gives voice to a plurality of actors, approaches, methodologies and themes.

Published in English and Portuguese, our books can be found mainly in specialized bookstores and online. The most recent partnership was with Monade, an independent Portuguese publisher, focused on architecture, photography, art and thought. You can find online the complete collection of publications of the Triennale for the various editions, from 2010 to 2019. Thus, we have been collaborating with specialized publishers and sometimes in partnership with cultural or academic organizations around the world.
