Trienal de Arquitectura de Lisboa

3rd Edition, 2014

Curatorial Text

Lisbon Open House returns on the weekend of 11th and 12th of October 2014 and opens its doors to 27 new spaces in a total of 70 locations.

In this edition, we suggest an extensive program of routes and guided tours. The selection of spaces is based not only in its cultural and architectural importance but also in the diversity of typologies and eras. Exterior routes and neighborhood visits are also part of the program and offer a comprehensive perspective of Lisbon’s growth and urban layout, in different stages of its history.

From Parque das Nações (Park of the Nations) to Algés, from the riverfront of the Tagus to the Avenidas Novas (New Avenues), from Mouraria to Benfica, the options are growing more and more: the only thing left to do is choose.

Architect's note

“To see, and enabling to see, opening doors to what is there of contemporary projects, “auteur” architecture and of so many different past eras, the classics. The aim is to give people the opportunity to get to know eight centuries of this enchanting and colourful city, based in an uneven topography that hides startling places.”
