The second edition is now taking place until March 10, 2024, titled The Beauty of Impermanence: An Architecture of Adaptability. Curated by Tosin Oshinowo, visitors at the free-to-attend event can explore six venues and sites across Sharjah City, featuring pieces from 29 architects, designers and studios from 25 countries. From impressive large-scale installations to thought-provoking exhibitions, the Triennial features a whole array of pieces that command attention.

The edition will immerse visitors in an ambitious and dynamic presentation that, while rooted in the history, culture and tradition of Sharjah, transforms the region into a global hub for architectural discourse.
