International Union of Architects UIA
The International Union of Architects UIA organises every three years a World Congress of Architects. The World Congress in 2023 will be held in Copenhagen, Denmark
The Nordic Section of the UIA (which is composed of Denmark, Finland, The Faroe Islands, Iceland, Norway and Sweden) won the 2023 bid and it is the first time it is held in a Nordic country.
Previous destinations count RIO (2021), SEOUL (2017) DURBAN (2014) and TOKYO (2011) amongst others.
A team based in Copenhagen is in charge of organising the next UIA World Congress of Architects, which will take place from 2-6 JULY 2023, in collaboration with a large group of partners and organisations.
The UIA is an international non-governmental organization recognized by UNESCO as the only architectural union operating at an international level.
