We are celebrating with Sea Ranch architecture memories and Katerine Giguère’s 𝙊𝙥𝙚𝙣 𝙎𝙠𝙮 (À ciel ouvert)! Thinking of examples of better urban future… any ideas?
Created by the International Union of Architects (UIA) in 1985, World Architecture Day is celebrated on the first Monday of October in parallel with UN World Habitat Day, for which the theme this year is Housing For All: A better Urban Future. By choosing a different theme each year, this world day seeks to draw the attention of professionals as well as the public to problems concerning cities and habitat.International Union of Architects
The purpose of World Habitat Day is to reflect on the state of our towns and cities, and on the basic right of all to adequate shelter. It is also intended to remind the world that we all have the power and the responsibility to shape the future of our cities and towns. World Habitat Day was established in 1985 by the United Nations General Assembly through Resolution 40/202, and was first celebrated in 1986. It takes place on the first Monday of October.
The theme of World Habitat Day 2020 is Housing For All: A better Urban Future, and the Global Observance will be hosted by the city of Surabaya, in Indonesia.UN-Habitat
