Dezeen Wire:
 British curator and writer Beatrice Galilee has been named as the chief curator for the third edition of the Lisbon Architecture Triennale, which will take place between October 2013 and January 2014.

Galilee was senior curator of the Communities section at this year's Gwangju Design Biennale, which is still in progress, and was the European curator of the 2009 Shenzhen Hong Kong Bi-City Biennale of architecture and urbanism. She is also director of London exhibition and event space The Gopher Hole,

Here are some more details from Lisbon Architecture Triennale:

Galilee, London-based curator, writer, critic and lecturer of contemporary architecture and design, is the successful candidate of an international Open Call launched in Spring this year. The Triennale received an exceptional calibre of applications and proposals from around the world with extremely high standards of critical intelligence and originality.

The jury, including Joseph Grima (Editor-in-chief of Domus magazine and former Director of Storefront for Art and Architecture), Beatriz Colomina (Professor of Architecture and Chair of the Ph.D. programme at the School of Architecture and Founding Director of the Program in Media and Modernity, Princeton University), José Mateus (President of Lisbon Architecture Triennale Association), Delfim Sardo (Critic, Curator and Chief Curator of the 2nd edition) and Manuel Henriques (Executive Director of Lisbon Architecture Triennale) was unanimously convinced that Galilee's proposal and profile stood out as exceptional in the context of the Triennale's proposed objectives.

Two years before the event, Galilee will start working alongside the team of the Lisbon Architecture Triennale and the invited international co-curators on the concept for 2013 and examine plurality in contemporary spatial practice.
