Monday 5 Oct 2015 is World Architecture Day!
This is an event for architects around the world organised by The International Union of Architects (UIA). This year the theme is “Architecture, Building, Climate Commitments and Solutions” and a whole range of events such as exhibitions, conferences and talks, will be taking place globally around this topic. As the International climate change agreements are being negotiated in Paris in December 2015, this is the ideal opportunity to demonstrate the importance that architecture and urban design can have in lowering greenhouse gas emissions.
