Following last year’s inaugural success in London, World Architecture News will be hosting this year’s World Architecture Day – the annual celebration of architectural and design excellence. In partnership with the AIA NY the three-day event will take place at The Centre for Architecture in New York, from 6-8 October. Expect three exciting days of iconic building tours, presentations and workshops from the world’s most influential architects, designers and developers.

This year’s theme: Towards eight billion; Housing the next generation will explore a selection of the most innovative housing solutions from around the world; from rebuilding the slums in Mumbai, through building on water in the Netherlands, worker housing in China, community driven developments in Berlin, to social housing in France. Highly acclaimed and award-winning speakers will present their ideas and participate in a high-level day of presentations, discussions and networking.
