DATE: 9/10/2017
"At the invitation of the International Biennial of Architecture of Buenos Aires 2017, on October 9, 2017 will inaugurate the Carrilho da Graça: Lisbon exhibition in Buenos Aires.

This exhibition shows above all a way of looking, present since the beginning of the professional and teaching activity of the architect João Luís Carrilho da Graça, illustrated from the city on which he has been working for more than 30 years: Lisbon.The materials of this retrospective allow us to approach a theory of territory, stated in a plan and model of Lisbon, and reiterated by the models of the projects. It is a theory that understands the fact that the remarkable lines and points that characterize the topography are at the base of human routes and settlements, and therefore of the construction of the city and its architecture.

The inauguration of the exhibition will be attended by the architects João Luís Carrilho da Graça and Marta Sequeira, curator of the exhibition. On October 11 at 7:15 pm, Carrilho da Graça will give a lecture at the main auditorium of Usina del Arte, home of the Bienal BA 2017. The show will be open until October 20, 2017.
