100 DAYS & COUNTING DOWN TO WORLD ARCHITECTURAL CONGRESS IN DURBAN, SOUTH AFRICA
The 25th International Union of Architects World Congress, UIA 2014 Durban, will hold at the International Convention Centre in Durban from 3rd – 7th August 2014. This is the first time that this Congress will hold in Africa and 6000 delegates are expected from around the world. The International Union of Architects (UIA) organizes a World Congress every three years, and there have been 24 previous UIA Congresses.
The current standard Registration Fee (R4500) has just been extended for another month till 31st May 2014, after which the fee will increase. I strongly encourage ALL section members to attend!
The Congress theme, ‘architecture OTHERWHERE‘, will celebrate diversity by exploring other communities, other regions, other disciplines, and other ways of thinking about, practising and teaching Architecture. The intention is to acknowledge the built environment as a major force that may be harnessed towards a better life for all – through the sub-themes RESILIENCE, ECOLOGY and VALUES.
