SOUTH AFRICA BIDS FOR UIA 2011 CONGRESS
 
UIA XXIV 2011
 
"On behalf of the South African Institute of Architects, I have great pleasure in inviting the International Union of Architects to hold the 2011 World Congress in Durban, South Africa. The bid has the support of the South African Government and the eThekwini Municipality, the greater region incorporating Durban. It has also been unanimously endorsed by the Africa Union of Architects.

The Congress has only been held once before in the southern hemisphere, in 1969 in Buenos Aires. It has been held in Africa previously, in 1951 in Rabat and in 1985 in Cairo. Durban presents an opportunity to hold the first UIA Congress in Sub-Saharan Africa and deal with topics relevant to the majority of the world’s population. The Congress will be an opportunity to promote architecture on the continent and also expose the world architectural community to a dynamic and diverse architecture environment."
