The 5th edition of the Lisbon Architecture Triennale is about to start and this year the subject will be about 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 and the conferences Talk, Talk, Talk will take up one particular aspect or dimension of this theme, in an attempt to circumscribe the stakes of architectural rationality. Panoramah! will be once again proudly associated to this amazing international event that promotes architecture critical knowledge. Join us from October 3rd to December 3rd!
