On Monday, 7 October 2019, people everywhere will celebrate World Architecture Day 2019. It is traditionally celebrated every year on the first Monday in October to coincide with the United Nations World Habitat Day.
The UIA has chosen the theme “Architecture… housing for all”. It will focus on how architects can contribute to the realisation of affordable housing for all; the implementation of the New Urban Agenda; and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), specifically Goal 11, “to make cities and human settlements safe, inclusive, resilient, and sustainable”.
Countries all over the globe will highlight the importance of architecture through events, exhibits, lectures and other activities, for the profession and the public.
The International Union of Architects (UIA)—the only global organisation representing the world’s 3.2 million architects—is now launching a competition to design the poster for World Architecture Day 2019. The winning design will become the unifying visual identity for the programmes and activities organised throughout the world on 7 October this year.
This competition is open to anyone. Submissions can be made as an individual or as a team.
