Due to the current health crisis and government restrictions on public gatherings, the UIA2021RIO Executive Committee has been forced to reorganise the Congress in a new online format, with pre-recorded videos and live transmissions. The International Union of Architects applauds the efforts of Brazilian architects to celebrate its Congress.
We regret not being able to assemble in the magnificent city of Rio de Janeiro and extend unconditional support to the UIA2021RIO Executive Committee and the Institute of Architects of Brazil. Using the latest digital technologies, the week of 18-22 July 2021 will offer the same programme originally planned, but now on a virtual platform. To expand the reach of the event and enrich offerings, all participants will have access to various events and activities, all built around the Congress sub-themes, throughout April, May, and June.
Participants who have already registered are invited to contact the UIA2021RIO Congress Secretariat to convert their pre-registration for the Congress into 3 digital registrations that can be transferred to the people of their choice.
The International Union of Architects today calls on all architects and architecture students to join their Brazilian colleagues virtually. Let’s make this Congress a place of debate and idea-sharing, all on the challenges posed by the theme: “All worlds. One world. Architecture 21.”
