We welcome proposals for independently-funded projects that directly respond to the theme of Close, Closer. These ideas from exhibitions to talks and one-off events will form the fringe events of the 2013 Lisbon Architecture Triennale. The overall theme of plurality in spatial practice can be interpreted and appropriated in many ways and we look forward to seeing reactions and ideas for collateral projects and events from all over the world. Applications for Associated Projects open on 17th September 2012. Contact the curatorial team or check our website for details on how to apply.

1. General Information 1.1 Organizer and scope of the invitation The third Lisbon Architecture Triennale welcomes proposals for independently funded projects that respond directly to the theme Close, Closer. These ideas from exhibitions to talks and one-off events will form the fringe events of the 2013 edition and will be publicised and supported in our printed and digital materials. The overall theme of plurality in spatial practice can be interpreted and appropriated in many ways and we look forward to seeing reactions and ideas for collateral projects and events from all over the world. By presenting relevant yet independently conceived and developed projects, the Triennale embraces the wide variety of creative and artistic disciplines which can enrich the scope of architectural practice and reflection with their contributions, stimulus and questioning. This will add resonance to the Triennales programme while affording its audience an even wider cultural and creative panorama. By the same token and by engaging the vast universe of spatial practice, the participants and authors of Associated Projects will tap into the wealth of creative resources, information, ideas and issues based on which contemporary architecture is shaped. At the same time, it will give Associated Projects exposure to key audiences and influencers within a well-established international event. Associated Projects will be referenced in the Triennales communication campaign and promotion/press materials, thus benefitting from its across-the-board impact. The Triennale is happy to act as a visibility platform and interface between audiences, actors and content, fostering awareness, interest and insight. 1.2 Selection Process The selection for Associated Projects will be made by the chief curator Beatrice Galilee and curatorial team, Liam Young, Mariana Pestana and Jos Esparza, at four to six week intervals. The entries will be decided upon based on their feasibility and engagement with the overall theme. Please download the launch booklet to read more information and essays by the chief curator and curatorial team. 2.
