The UIA is pleased to announce that 16 projects from 9 countries on 4 continents were submitted to the inaugural edition of the UIA Innovation in Architectural Education Award, organised by the UIA Education Commission and launched in November 2019.
The UIA may participate in international award and prize programmes that advance its aims and promote design quality, recognising excellent and significant works of architecture and urbanism.
The UIA participates in such programmes to elevate the art and science of design and construction, encourage respect for the built and natural environments and promote responsible architecture.
Award and prize programmes concern projects, designs or buildings that have been completed or realized. Such programmes differ from design competitions in that entries are not anonymous, but instead carry the names of their authors and often their clients. Awards and prizes recognise the quality of realized projects. They distinguish their authors, and advance the state of the art.
