Palace Patrons Get Together


Since 2012, the Sinel de Cordes Palace has become the headquarters of the Lisbon Architecture Triennale. To enable the space to fully function, a group of patrons joined this initiative, contributing to the possibility of rehabilitating the space. In 2015, the Cultural Pole's rentrée brought these benefactors together again for a sharing and networking event that brought together the Triennale's governing bodies, Partners, Sponsors, Benefactors and residents of the Creative Pole. Among them, Sanitana, Laser Build, Polyrey, Tarkett, CIN, Secil, Construção ao Quadrado, Fundação EDP, Knauf Insulation attended the get together, as patrons of this rehabilitation initiative.

All of them were invited to this intimate evening, where a dinner was served a dinner on the noble floor of the Palace, which ended with Angel Olsen's concert, as solo premiere of the American singer in Lisbon.

Whoever joins this initiative and constantly supports the promotion of the Triennale, trains this organization in the continuous promotion of debate, reflection and research in architecture, which is why the institution has been distinguished in its three editions (2007, 2010 and 2013) by the President of the Republic and has since 2010 the status of Cultural Interest.
