Press Information No. 12
UIA Berlin 2002
Closing date of Call for Contributions extended!
Contributions may be submitted until 15th October 2001.
"Resource Architecture" is the title of the XXI. World Congress of Architecture, which will be held in Berlin from 22nd to 26th July 2002. This Congress is organised by the Union Internationale des Architectes (UIA) and the Bund Deutscher Architekten BDA.
In order to turn the Congress into a stage for technical and interdisciplinary dialogue covering as many aspects as possible, those interested, architects and other planners from all over the world are requested to submit qualified and innovative contributions to the central themes "Urban Societies“, „Innovation and Tradition“, „The Built and the Natural“, and „Space and Identity“, which illustrate the significance of architecture and town planning in society.
As the Call for Contributions is directed to parties from all over the world, and interest has been growing as the Congress approaches, the closing date for submitting the abstracts under the Call for Contributions has been extended from 31st August 2001 to 15th October 2001.
The abstracts will help us outline both the themes actually to be dealt with in the programs of the forums and workshops, and the design of the poster exhibition, and may consist of papers, films, events and similar things. The forums will be platforms where the central themes of the Congress may be discussed in greater detail, while the workshops will provide an opportunity for the presentation of specific projects and designs.
The length of presentation of the contributions submitted should not exceed 20 minutes. The size of the abstracts should be one page (German A4 standard) with a maximum of 3,000 characters, plus a second page containing the author's personal data, a short CV, and references.
