Overview

UIA

The International Union of Architects (UIA) world congresses are a forum for professional and cultural exchange among all the world's architects, and bring together thousands of participants from around the globe. Each event focuses on a pertinent theme, developed by eminent personalities from the international architectural, planning, and construction fields. Debates, exhibitions, tours and festivals make them the perfect meeting place for colleagues and friends, and students of architecture are always welcome.

Since its launch in Lausanne, Switzerland in 1948, 25 congresses have been held and Seoul was awarded for the 26th UIA World Architects Congress under the theme ‘Soul of City.’
