The Form of Form, curated by André Tavares and the late Diogo Seixas Lopes, takes place in Lisbon from 5 October to 11 December 2016. The programme includes 4 main exhibitions, 7 Satellites, 3 Awards, 1 Competition, 1 International Conference, 14 Associated Projects, and much more.
As the title suggests, form itself will be a main object of exploration, understood both in its role as a universal means of communication within and outside the discipline as well as in its power to radically influence the functioning and the development of cities.
The Form of Fom will investigate interactions and struggles that materialize in the place where architecture is materially built, drawing attention to the role of technologies and rhetoric on the form architecture takes and on the impact the built environment is able to have on society and in people’s lives.
Between the participants, renowned practitioners coming from architecture, design and the visual arts contribute to a multidisciplinary and critical discourse.
Special highlights in the Form of Form programme will be the opening and the closing week, with several invited guests, as well as the Talk, Talk, Talk, an international conference that will take place from 17 to 19 November.
