The New 2023 World Captial of Architecture

2023 is starting with a bang in the architecture world!  The International Union of Architects (UIA) has chosen a new city to be the new World Capital of Architecture! *Drumroll please* Copenhagen, Denmark!  The UIA chose this beautiful city based on certain criteria that showcase how the city has sought solutions to mitigate the effects of climate change while preserving the elegance and design of buildings.

Copenhagen is taking on the responsibility of carrying the title from the previous world capital, Rio De Janeiro.  Some of the duties thrust upon the world capital of architecture include hosting a series of events and programs under one common theme: “Sustainable Futures – Leave No One Behind.”

The torch will change hands again in 2026, but the UIA is already looking at two highly qualified candidates, Barcelona, Spain, and Beijing, China.
