Vanguard Properties official sponsor of Lisbon Architecture Triennial 2022
The real estate developer Vanguard Properties is the official sponsor of the 6th edition of the Lisbon Architecture Triennial which runs between 29 September and 5 December. The Triennial 2022 kicks off with a three-day programme of exhibitions, book launches, an awards ceremony, debates and performances on the 29th and 30th of September and 1st of October. ‘The Earth’ (Terra) is the title of this year’s edition, in a call for action to build a more sustainable future for our planet.
Curated and organised by Cristina Veríssimo and Diogo Burnay, the activities will take place at various cultural spots throughout the city, such as MAAT - Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology, MNAC – National Museum of Old and Contemporary Art, CCB – Garagem Sul, Culturgest, and Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, among others. This edition will feature the participation of international artists and architects, but also thinkers and researchers, as well as representatives of the institutions which have sponsored or supported the initiative.
The second key event of the Triennial 2022 is the round of ‘Talk, Talk, Talk’ conferences between 26 and 28 October. There will be three days of sharing thoughts, ideas, and experiences; reflections and extensive debates around the main exhibits.
“Taking in account Vanguard’s vision and position on contemporary art, architecture, landscaping, and topics which are critical for society and its future, such as sustainability, supporting Triennial 2022 makes perfect sense. We believe this 6th edition promotes exhibitions and platforms for debate, as well as other initiatives that, above all, reflect the future of architecture and resources management”, explains José Cardoso Botelho, CEO of Vanguard Properties.
About the Lisbon Architecture Triennial:
The Lisbon Architecture Triennial (Trienal de Arquitectura de Lisboa) was founded in 2007 and runs every three years. ‘Terra’ (The Earth) is the title of Triennial 2022, with a programme comprising four exhibitions, three awards, three days of conferences, a selection of independent projects, and a collection of books. Curated and organised by Cristina Veríssimo and Diogo Burney, ‘Terra’ includes a declaration of intent and a call for action. It proposes a transformation of the current fragmented and linear system model, characterised by the excessive use of resources, to a circular and holistic system model, motivated by a greater and deeper balance between communities, resources and processes. ‘Terra’ suggests that we reboot the future by cross-referencing and exchanging expertise on new ways of doing things that can co-exist, contributing towards a more sustainable future for the planet and those who live on it.
