UIA World Congress
The UIA (International Union of Architects) world congresses are a premier forum for professionals and future leaders in the field of architecture to exchange the best and latest practices, visions and first-hand experience. The UIA 2017 Seoul, in particular, will promote various innovative architectural techniques and technologies among member sections and global citizens. In doing so, academic programs, exhibitions, competitions, student activities, and public outreach programs will simultaneously take place.
UIA World Congress History

Congress Theme: Soul of City
Only a living creature owns a soul. And a body without a soul is only a corpse. ”SOUL OF CITY,” UIA 2017 Seoul’s main theme, therefore projects our strong commitment and determination to acknowledging the importance of having souls dissolved in architecture and cities we live in.
What we are expecting from UIA 2017 Seoul:
- recognition of professional roles of urban regeneration in variety of aspects
- widening the scopes of architecture for vitality of urban environment
- sharing the future visions of urban lives with the world
- generating discourses and concepts for architects and city dwellers to consider and scrutinize.
