Architecture for All Work Programme
Wednesday 6th September, 15:00-18:00, Room 317A (3F) at COEX
The UIA Friendly and Inclusive Spaces Awards were founded to encourage and acknowledge architects who have created exemplary friendly, inclusive and accessible buildings and public spaces. Entries must demonstrate that they have met the highest standards of universal and inclusive design, where the realised designs contribute to the quality of life of all those who may use them.
Awards are given in four Categories: New Buildings, Public Spaces, Existing & Historic Buildings and Research. Entries were received from 28 countries across five continents. The Jury was impressed by the range of project types submitted and by the standard and quality of the shortlisted entries from the five regions.
The authors of the winning entries, both medal winners and honourable mentions, will present their projects and will then join in a round table discussion with members of the Jury. This session will be chaired by UIA Past President – Vassilis Sgoutas.
