Logo Competition: UNESCO-UIA World Capital of Architecture

UIA is launching a competition for the UNESCO-UIA World Capital of Architecture logo.

The World Capital of Architecture is a new triennial programme launched by UNESCO and the UIA, wherebythetwoorganisations will designate cities hosting the UIA World Congress of Architects as World Capitals of Architecture for a period of 1 year. The city designated as World Capital of Architecture will become a global forum for discussing the pressing challenges facing our world, through the prisms of culture, heritage, urban planning and architecture. UNESCO, the UIA and local institutions will organise activities and events to promote projects that will involve not only architects and urban planners, but professionals from all other related sectors, including artists, writers, policy makers, and social institutions. The overriding objective of the World Capital of Architecture initiative is for designated cities to style themselves as open and creative spaces to discuss, exchange and seek solutions to the urban dilemma.
