The third Lisbon Architecture Triennale, Close, Closer, is announcing a crisis-busting ideas grant for Lisbon, in a direct response to the catastrophic social impacts of reces-sion and the cultural and civic deficit created in crisis-ridden Europe.


The goal of the Crisis Buster grant programme is to generate innovative, useful, productive and long-term ideas which, through spatial, written, cultural or other means, address civic issues in the city of Lisbon. The grant also exists to support and promote existing initiatives.


Everybody from all professions and ages are welcome to apply. Projects must be completed in Lisbon between September 12 and December 15 2013, and proof of ability to execute this will be part of the judging criteria.

  • Feb 18, 2013—Submissions deadline
  • Mar 21, 2013—Winners announced
