Trienal de Arquitectura de Lisboa

LINA is the new European architecture platform

Funded by the Creative Europe programme

We are happy to announce that the European Commission has approved the application of LINA, an international network of 28 organisations including the Triennale. Sharing its name with one of the most acknowledged female architects of the 20th century, LINA stands for Learning, Interacting and Networking in Architecture, the three pivotal points to both support emerging professionals and mobilise efforts towards a more sustainable and circular built environment. Over three years, LINA will showcase new theoretical or practical approaches in an artistic, educational and cultural context. Regular encounters will serve as a melting pot for agents, curators, producers and organisations working towards the urgent changes in spatial planning and urban design in line with the European Green Deal. In the words of the European Commission, this innovative working model «will support the sector's response adaptable to the circular economy and environmental challenges».

In connection with the new European Bauhaus, LINA addresses the climate challenges through a broad international programme of research, workshops, exhibitions, conferences and publishing projects. The participation of the Triennale, representing Portugal, is twofold: each year it will host programmatic content from one of the platform members in its cultural cluster, and select emerging practitioners for a journey across Europe by train ending in Lisbon.

The Faculty of Architecture at the University of Ljubljana coordinates the programme and Matevž Čelik is its director. Funded by the Creative Europe programme, LINA unites festivals, museums, galleries, foundations, research networks, laboratories, publishing houses and universities from 23 countries around Europe and the Mediterranean, from Portugal to Lebanon. This network is the successor of the extremely fruitful Future Architecture platform, which ended in 2021.
