On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Goethe-Institut in Portugal, Lisbon-based architects Barbas Lopes have been invited to design the Goethe Salon, a pavilion which articulates and celebrates a temporary structure and platform sited in the tropical garden of the Goethe Institute’s central location in the city of Lisbon. The pavilion project was catalyst of the International colloquium this November in the Institut Français and Goethe-Institut in Lisbon with Patrick Bouchain (Paris), Patrícia Barbas + Diogo Lopes (Lisbon), Alex Schweder (NY/Berlin/London), Magnus Nilsson + Ralf Pflugfelder (London/Berlin), Torsten Blume (Leipzig), Tim Simon (Berlin), João Quintela (Madrid/Lisbon) and Julia Albani (Lisbon/Berlin).
