UIA XXII World Congress of Arcithecture

About the Congress

The 21st century has already introduced complex new priorities and challenges for the benefit of all humanity, regardless of differences in political conviction, race, faith, gender, geography, or economic condition. These emerging new values all focus on well-being and protection of the biosphere that all of us share as one community. The guiding principles in these evolving ethics include participation, partnership, economic and social equity, the conservation of resources, and the use of technology for the benefit of the environment and humanity. There is universal consensus on the need to work together towards a sustainable future for our built and natural environments.
Pluralism - in the most genuine sense - is a key factor and objective in the future world, a world where differences will no longer be the source of animosity or conflict, but instead will be valued as the essential ingredient for global and natural harmony. The architectural profession has a preponderant role and responsibility in this effort, and architecture itself is no longer seen merely as a fine art, but as a discipline to enable the bridge between technology and social and economic need through design and the appropriate use of resources. Even within the concept of globalisation, the recognition of local conditions - and differing values and priorities - will require architects to focus more than ever before on the provision and improvement of the environments in which people everywhere carry out their own lives.

The importance of pluralism in our world has served to guide preparations for the XXIInd World Congress of the International Union of Architects, to be held during 2005 in Istanbul, Turkey. The congress theme - Grand Bazaar of ArchitectureS - was chosen to give voice to each and every notable expression of all those responsible for and involved in the shaping of our environments. It will constitute a mosaic of colours, shapes, and movement that reflects the contemporary concerns of architects and others; the structure of the congress will permit every person, action group, company, client, supplier, artist, and architect to present their ideas and to share their accomplishments with the rest of the world. Within the congress theme, we also plan to Celebrate Our Cities, to reinforce the notion of plurality and the interaction of humankind together.

On behalf of the International Union of Architects, it is a great pleasure for me to invite all architects, students, clients, decision-makers, industrialists, hardware and software companies, community leaders, and concerned individuals and institutions to join us during July 2005 in Istanbul, where architects and other professionals will come together and interact as the focal point for the celebration of World Architecture.
