The poetics of reason

Lecture Monday 18 November 2019 at 7 PM

Entitled The Poetics of Reason, the Fifth Lisbon Architecture Triennial is an attempt to define the specificity of architectural rationality.

In the midst of an environmental and social crisis, The Poetics of Reason intends to affirm that the need to create sustainable buildings and cities is an opportunity for re-founding, and that the architectural discipline itself is probably more reliable than technology in finding solutions. It intends to trace a theoretical genealogy for this architecture of the future. Furthermore, it affirms, far from the icons that aim to astound the public, the need to produce intelligible architecture in order to build a common culture.
