Starting in June and for the duration of one year, Experimenta is curating the Barão de Quintela e Conde de Farrobo Palace. Located in the charismatic Lisbon neighbourhood of Chiado, the Palace is the cultural headquarters of IADE, one of Portugal’s leading design schools.

The result of a partnership between two like-minded institutions, the programme is geared to turning the Palace into a thriving hub dedicated to design and architecture. Combining exhibitions, master classes, workshops, conferences, think tanks and project launches, it will focus on Portuguese production and creativity, fostering experimentation and innovation. It will also feature international events, with an emphasis on co-productions.

The programme of the Barão de Quintela e Conde de Farrobo Palace starts June 18, with the exhibition “Revolution 99/09” covering Portuguese communication and industrial design from the last 10 years.

Opening: June 18
Daily, 10 am to 10 pm
The cultural headquarters of IADE since its creation in 1969, this palace was built between 1777 and 1788, in the architectural style known as Pombaline, which dominated Lisbon’s reconstruction following the earthquake of 1755. Extensively remodelled and improved by generations of owners, the Palace was enriched with decorative plasterwork, oil paintings and frescos by Portuguese Neoclassical artists António Manuel da Fonseca and Cyrillo Volkmar Machado. Official residence of General Junot during the Napoleonic invasions, the scene of lavish social gatherings and the creation of the Portuguese Republican Party in the early 20th century, once a museum, antiques salon and home to the world’s largest dedicated Camões library, the history of the Palace mirrors that of the city itself.
