The Lisbon Architecture Triennale invites national and international students to participate in its third edition by holding a programmatic intervention at its Headquarters in Campo de Santa Clara.
The competition brief is open and the intervention can take on many forms. It could be a lecture series, a practical, function-based alteration to the space, a long-term piece of infrastructure for the Triennale or a temporary site-specific proposal for Close, Closer. It can be an installation of great beauty, drama or simplicity. It can be an idea or a text, a publishing programme or a radio station.
The winner(s) will be awarded a cash prize, as well as receive a budget to realize their vision and make their intervention happen. It must either take place between 12 September and 15 December 2013 (in the case of an event, temporary or one-off initiative) or be completed by 12 September, in the case of a long-term piece or construction.
The competition is open to students of all levels of higher education in all countries of the world. Applicants must be enrolled in a full time course in a recognised institution.
