Critic, writer and architecture teacher: we introduce you Beatrice Galilee, the curator chosen for Triennale 2013. Between October 2013 and January 2014, the British chief-curator brings to Lisbon the debate on architecture from the perspective of Close, Closer.

Beatrice Galilee is the winner of an international competition launched by the Lisbon Architecture Triennale in May 2011, to which "candidates from all over the world responded, with proposals that are guided by high standards of quality, in terms of criticism and originality". The jury members are Beatriz Colomina (Professor of Architecture and President of the PhD programme at the School of Architecture and founder of the Media and Modernity Programme, Princeton University), Delfim Sardo (Chief Curator of the 2nd edition), , José Mateus (Chairman of Lisbon Architecture Triennale), Joseph Grima (Curator, Director, Editor of Domus magazine and former Director of Storefront for Art and Architecture) and Manuel Henriques (Executive Director of Lisbon Architecture Triennale).

The 3rd edition will begin in 2011, with Galilee working with the Triennale team on the theme of analysing the condition in which architecture is exercised, as well as the way it is framed, expressed and understood. By asking questions through different contexts and spheres, this edition assumes itself as a call to action.

With an eclectic background, the British chief curator is co-founder and director of Gopher Hole, an exhibition space in London, and was curator of the communities section at the Gwangju Design Biennale, directed by Ai Wei Wei and Seung H-Sang. In 2008, she received the award of Architecture Journalist of the Year from IBP, and was the architecture editor for Icon magazine between 2007 and 2009.
