The second part, featuring the winning projects from the two prizes, Golden Cubes Awards and the Friendly & Inclusive Spaces Awards, organised by UIA Work Programmes Architecture & Children and Architecture For All, will take place on 20 July at 8:00 (Brasilia Time).
The last part of the UIA2021RIO Awards programme will start on 22 July at 8:30 (Brasilia Time) with the recognition of the UIA Triennial Prizes, beginning with statements by UIA President Thomas Vonier and the President of Mido Watches, the UIA’s official sponsor and culminating with a tribute to the UIA 2021 Gold Medalist, Paulo Mendes da Rocha.
