JULY 2-6 2023


Our goal is to promote, discuss, create, and showcase architecture as a vital tool in achieving the UN 17 Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. We will share sustainable solutions, examine the latest research results, and join our efforts to make the 28th UIA World Congress a milestone in the history of what architecture can do to save the planet. 

In this sense, the UIA World Congress of Architects in 2023 has already begun, and you are invited to join us in Copenhagen, July 2nd to 6th in 2023.

We are kicking off the UIA World Congress 2023 with a video that explores the themes, challenges and future of sustainable architecture.

Copenhagen welcomes you

Copenhagen is ranked as one of the most livable cities in the world and is aiming to become the world’s most cycling-friendly city. As venue for the UIA World Congress in 2023, Copenhagen provides a unique combination of culture, tolerance, safety, global connectivity, well-functioning public transport, green spaces, and high-quality architecture. 

Stay a while

We hope that you will spend time with old and new colleagues, as well as the Copenhageners, during the week-long congress. We also hope that you will stay a little longer so you can enjoy more of the Northern hospitality, architecture, culture, and nature, and get the most out of your travel expenses and the carbon footprint you made to get here. Our Nordic neighbours are less than 20 minutes away and the summer dressed cities and marvelous landscapes of Denmark are just outside the city borders. 

Explore the Nordics

Nordic architecture, design and planning already enjoys admiration and esteem worldwide. Danish and Nordic businesses and research institutions have a long-lasting tradition of aiming for sustainable solutions for the building and construction industries. Efforts to realize this ambition are constantly increasing in the Nordic countries and there is much to show - and much to see. You can travel by train to Stockholm, Oslo, and Helsinki directly from the Central Station in the city center of Copenhagen.


How can
contribute to
the 17 UN Goals?

Architectural solutions are already here, everywhere, contributing to sustainable communities and quality of life. However, the built environment is also a part of the current challenges – a major consumer of energy and natural resources, and producer of waste.
