World Architecture Summit
Founder and president
Dates : 2007 - on going
The World Architecture Summit is an institution that aims to encourage an awareness of architecture in all its aspects: aesthetic, functional, technical, political, economic, social and urban.
It focuses on contemporary architectural creation and its interrelation with social issues, economic development, urban planning, art and design.
Without disregarding architecture's historical heritage, the Summit places an emphasis on contemporary structures and the emergence of new ideas. Through architectural projects and specific works chosen from all over the world, the Summit aims to highlight the trends and issues that are present in contemporary architectural creation.
The aim that the World Architecture Summit has set itself is to encourage an awareness of architecture by providing it with an international platform and display window in order to make known, understand and better appreciate contemporary architecture.
The World Architecture Summit's partners are companies which are active in architecture-related sectors, more specifically those that wish to establish themselves in towns and cities of the world to display their values of beauty and modernity, and their capacities for creation and innovation.
