SIGN UP HERE! Logo competition for the UNESCO-UIA World Capital of architecture

The UIA is launching a competition for the UNESCO-UIA World Capital of Architecture logo.

The World Capital of Architecture is a new triennial programme launched by UNESCO and the UIA, whereby the two organisations will designate cities hosting the UIA World Congress of Architects as World Capitals of Architecture for a period of 1 year. The city designated as World Capital of Architecture will become a global forum for discussing the pressing challenges facing our world, through the prisms of culture, heritage, urban planning and architecture. UNESCO, the UIA and local institutions will organise activities and events to promote projects that will involve not only architects and urban planners, but professionals from all other related sectors, including artists, writers, policy makers, and social institutions. The overriding objective of the World Capital of Architecture initiative is for designated cities to style themselves as open and creative spaces to discuss, exchange and seek solutions to the urban dilemma.

More information about the World Capital of Architecture.

The winning logo will be used all around the world for the World Capital of Architecture programme branding. While a new World Capital of Architecture is nominated every 3 years, the programme logo stays the same.

...And we want that logo to be designed by YOU!
