The Lisbon Triennale has announced the panel of judges for this year's projects. The panel will be composed of important architects like Bjarke Ingels of BIG, Minsuk Cho of Mass Studies, Phillippe Rahm of Philippe Rahm Architects and Luis Santiago Baptista of the journal Arqa.
The theme of the triennale this year is “Close, Closer” and it intends to initiate a discussion regarding the changing role of the contemporary architect. There will be three exhibitions, a lecture program, a series of electronic publications, student awards, a Debut Award for young architects and a career achievement award.
The organizers of the triennale said, "In order to judge the projects of our competition, we have collected some of the world's experts on architecture, as much theoreticians as practicians, who have helped the profession get ahead.
The critical resonance of their knowledge will raise the bar for the exploratory works that Close, Closer hopes to receive from evolving architectural talents, and we are proud to present and discuss the projects with them."
The Triennale will be from September 12th until December 15th of this year.
