5th October, it’s the official World Architecture Day.
“Architecture, Building and Climate” is the theme of World Architecture Day 2015. The International Union of Architects (UIA) choose the theme to be used in several countries joining the celebrations. The choice is related to COP 21 – international conference to discuss climate change in Paris.
UIA members, working bodies and partners mobilized to promote actions and solutions that apply the enormous power of architecture and urban design in coping with global climate change, one of the greatest challenges of our time.
As the world’s national governments approach COP 21, the international climate treaty negotiations taking place later this year, the UIA will join with national and regional architecture organisations to highlight the essential role of architecture, design and town planning in reducing associated greenhouse gas emissions.

A delegation, led by the UIA President, architect Esa Mohamed of Malaysia, represent the profession to celebrate the World Architecture Day.
