International competitions commission
Drawn up jointly by UNESCO and the UIA and approved by the UNESCO General Conference, the UNESCO-UIA Regulations for International Competitions outline the conditions required to launch and run an international architectural competition, and specify the respective rights and obligations of promoters and competitors. The UIA is the sole body mandated by UNESCO to oversee the application of these rules respected and approve competitions organized according to them. Through its advisory role, the International Union of Architects guarantees the exemplariness of international competitions such as those that led to the construction of contemporary landmark buildings like the Sydney Opera House, Georges Pompidou Centre in Paris, the Tokyo International Forum, and the Alexandria Library in Egypt.
