Who We Are

Rio de Janeiro is, in 2020, the World´s Capital of Architecture. The unique title was awarded to the city that will host the 27th World Congress of Architects, by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (Unesco) and by the International Union of Architects (UIA)

To organize the celebrations related to this nomination, an organizational structure was created, composed of the associate committee UNESCO/UIA, by Council UNESCO/UIA Rio World Capital of Architecture and Organizing Committee, under which there are three sub-committees: Programming, Promotion, Communication and Administration and Logistics.
