THE FIRST NORDIC CONGRESS

Every three years, the International Union of Architects (UIA) organises a world congress.

The UIA Nordic Section (Denmark, Finland, Faroe Islands, Iceland, Norway and Sweden) won the 2023 bid for the UIA World Congress of Architects and it is the first time it is held in a Nordic country.

Previous destinations count RIO (2021), Seoul (2017) Durban (2014) and Tokyo (2011) amongst others.

A team based in Copenhagen is in charge of organising the next UIA World Congress of Architects, which will take place from 2-6 JULY 2023, in collaboration with a large group of partners and organisations.

THE INTERNATIONAL UNION
OF ARCHITECTS (UIA)

The International Union of Architects was founded in 1948 to unite the architects of the world through an association of their national organizations. From the 27 delegations present then, the UIA has grown to include the key professional architects’ associations in more than 100 countries, organizing an estimated 1.3 million architects and will celebrate a 75 years anniversary in 2023.

The UIA is an international non-governmental organization recognized by UNESCO as the only architectural union operating at an international level.

Coordinating Council

The Coordinating Council, under the Presidency and direction of the UIA President, is responsible for the establishment of the general principles governing the UIA World Congress in Copenhagen, the monitoring and orientation of the preparatory works, the achievement of coordination and cooperation among different parties, as well as the management of the agreement signed between the UIA and the Danish Association of Architects.
