Concurso LOGO Capital Mundial de la Arquitectura


La Capital Mundial de la Arquitectura es un nuevo programa trienal lanzado por la UNESCO y la UIA, por el cual las dos organizaciones designarán a las ciudades anfitrionas del Congreso Mundial de Arquitectos de la UIA como Capital Mundial de la Arquitectura por un período de 1 año. La ciudad designada como Capital Mundial de la Arquitectura se convertirá en un foro global para discutir los desafíos apremiantes que enfrenta nuestro mundo, a través de los prismas de la cultura, el patrimonio, la planificación urbana y la arquitectura. La UNESCO, la UIA y las instituciones locales organizarán actividades y eventos para promover proyectos que involucren no solo a arquitectos y planificadores urbanos, sino a profesionales de todos los demás sectores relacionados, incluidos artistas, escritores, responsables políticos e instituciones sociales. El objetivo primordial de la iniciativa Capital mundial de la arquitectura es que las ciudades designadas se diseñen como espacios abiertos y creativos para discutir, intercambiar y buscar soluciones al dilema urbano.
