International Architectural Competition Design of the Bamiyan Cultural Centre

UNESCO, together with the Government of Afghanistan, announce the launching of a single phase, open, international project competition for the design of the Bamiyan Cultural Centre in Afghanistan. The centre will be built near the Cultural Landscape and Archaelogical Remains of Bamiyan, recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage property. The winning project should represent the first stage in the realisation of an iconic edifice worthy of this unique site and its priceless heritage.

The UIA has endorsed this competition, which it has found to be in conformity with the UNESCO- UIA regulations concerning international competitions in architecture and town-planning.

objectives
The competition seeks to reinforce culture and history as the base of Afghan unity, while celebrating the cultural sensitivities of the diverse ethnic groups. The Bamiyan Cultural Centre is intended to be a place of reconciliation, of peace building and of economic development in Afghanistan. The Centre will be a space for exchanges of ideas and knowledge and a dynamic gathering place for communities to honour past traditions and to plan for the future.

The Centre will be no more than 2 200 M2 on a 26 000 M2 site and must include spaces for exhibitions, live theatrical and musical events, research and classrooms.

Submission Deadline: January 22, 2015

2015 UIA-PHG International Student Competition

The International Union of Architects Public Health Group (UIA-PHG) cordially invites you to submit an abstract for a paper or poster presentation to the 2015 UIA-PHG Annual Conference. The theme of the conference is “Health for All: Cultural, Populational, Operational & Technological Influences.” This conference will be held in Dalian, China, in conjunction with the 16th China Hospital Build & Infrastructure Exhibition and Congress.

In 1978, more than 130 countries signed the Alma Ata Declaration that aimed to protect and promote physical, mental and social well-being of all people. Thirty-six years has passed. The world has witnessed rapid changes in the development of globalization, the growth of economy, the booming of the world population and the advancement of technologies. However, some important questions remain unanswered. Have we achieved the goals the Declaration set for 2000? Have we, as planners, urban designers, architects, interior designers or other related professionals, fulfilled our mission to provide healthy living environments and quality health services to all people?
