Since 2007, the Lisbon Architecture Triennale is a non-profit association whose mission is to research, foster and promote architectural thinking and practice. We have been doing just that throughout the last 10 years with a myriad of activities. And we will mark 2019 with another edition of our major international forum, which once again promotes debate, discussion and the dissemination of architecture while crossing geographic and disciplinary boundaries.
The 5th edition of the Lisbon Architecture Triennale will be “The Poetics of Reason”. This title states that, for all its subjective and non-scientific dimension, architecture does rest on reason, and its aim is to shed light onto the specificity of this reason. Indeed, the fact that architecture is grounded into reason and rationality is key to its being understandable, i.e. shareable, by everyone, and not just by architects. More than ever before, it stands as a condition to define an architecture for our contemporary ordinary condition. As a result of a massification of construction – more buildings have been built since the beginning of the previous century than ever before – such a condition implies that everybody is entitled to understand architecture without a specific background in the field.
Each of the five exhibitions that compose the Triennale 2019 will take up one particular aspect or dimension of this theme, in an attempt to circumscribe the stakes of architectural rationality.
