Architectonic (Online only)
Graphic Studio Gallery is delighted to present Architectonic, an online-only exhibition featuring works that relate to architectural structures, namely exteriors, including commercial, domestic and utility buildings and places of habitat.
World architecture day is celebrated every year on the first Monday of October. Created by the International Union of Architects (UIA) in 1985, world architecture day intentionally coincides with UN-Habitat’s World Habitat Day, to ‘“remind the world of its collective responsibility for the future of the human habitat”. The theme of World Architecture Day 2020 is Housing For All: A better Urban Future.
‘By choosing a different theme each year, this world day seeks to draw the attention of professionals as well as the public to problems concerning cities and habitat.
Just as it is reshaping social customs and spaces all across the world, the global pandemic is revealing once again how crises affect the poorest and most vulnerable populations disproportionately.
In far too many of the world’s cities, people cannot follow safe practices, simply because they lack clean water and air, and even space itself. Urban policies must ensure adequate services, shelter, and recreational space for all citizens. Urban planning, design, and architecture are critical to a better urban future for all.
“Urban design and architecture are keys to a better quality of life for everyone.”’ Thomas Vonier (President of UIA)
