what about architecture?
You might be wondering: “What about architecture? I thought this was an initiative that is part of the World Congress of Architects“.
The purpose of the congress is to create a platform to discuss how architecture can contribute to a sustainable future – leaving no one behind. This is a holistic challenge, and UIA is inviting “the whole built environment” to participate in the discussion, where NGCA is a key initiative in doing so by bringing together and into the congress, young academics and entrepreneurs from diverse cultures and fields.
