The Lisbon Architecture Triennale has announced the list of 14 Associated Projects that will be included in the upcoming 4th edition, The Form of Form. The projects were selected from 73 proposals, 29 of which were from international participants. "These 14 events will expand the main program and present captivating ideas on venues that highlight the diversity of Lisbon's landscape," noted chief curator André Tavares.
Aiming to "stimulate and deepen the debate around a large spectrum of contemporary views on today's architectural practice," Form of Form seeks to "highlight currents of thought important for the production of architecture in a social context in constant transformation."
From the architect. The result of a research and development project, the Gomos modular system is an effective response to the contemporary need to simplify and speed up the construction process. Composed of reinforced concrete modules, it is a scalable system in which each module leaves the factory completely ready, including all interior and exterior finishes, insulation, window frames, water and electricity and even the fixed furniture pieces. The on site assembly can be completed in just a few days by joining the modules together. The construction process can thus be broken down into four phases: production of the structure; installation of finishes and facilities; transportation; and assembly.
