Trienal de Arquitectura de Lisboa

Triennale awarded with Excellence

During the last decade, Construir newspaper has been nominating the best of the year in this 12th edition of the 2019 Building Awards in the areas of Architecture, Engineering, Construction and Real Estate. From the best atelier to the best rehabilitation, from internationalisation to sustainability or from the best tourist development to the best residence: there are several categories that choose the best projects between January 2018 and September 2019.

In 2019, the Lisbon Architecture Triennale also stands out among the winners. And we are very proud to share with you the testimony of Construir: It is with particular honour and satisfaction that I inform you that the team of CONSTRUIR newspaper, regarding the organisation of the CONSTRUIR 2019 Awards, unanimously decided to grant the Excellence in Architecture Award to the Lisbon Architecture Triennale and to José Mateus in particular, as President of the organisation.

The prize for which the Triennale was awarded is decided by the jury, in the only of the seventeen categories not chosen by readers, resulting from a direct nomination. The aim is to celebrate the effort and talent of the various construction sectors. Merit, technique, functionality and innovation are the main criteria that justify this award. 

Construir newspaper has been an important partner of the dissemination of the regular initiatives that the Triennale designs and organizes, highlighting Open House, the architecture conferences and now more recently Triennale 2019, curated by Éric Lapierre (3 Oct – 2 Dec 2019). The awards ceremony took place on 12 November, at the Pavilion of Knowledge in Lisbon, in a ceremony that began at 21:30 after a dinner with the nominees of this 12th edition.
