CICA and UIA sign agreement
The International Committee of Architectural Critics, CICA, is pleased to announce the signing of an agreement with the International Union of Architects, UIA.
On May the 9th, Esa Mohamed, President of UIA, and Joseph Rykwert, President of CICA, met in London at the Royal Institute of British Architects, RIBA, to establish an agreement to further their relationship.
CICA, created at the 13th UIA Congress in Mexico City in 1978, inaugurated at that time a partnership with UIA that will now be broadened by working together in the bettering of the architectural profession. Habitat, sustainability, resilience and cultural heritage are the main topics that preoccupy CICA and the UIA, joining forces in the implementation of their policies, to attain architecture as expression of culture and as a human right.
PREAMBLE There has been a relationship between the UIA and the CICA, starting with the creation of this last one in 1978, in the 13th UIA Congress in Mexico City; since then, CICA has been part of all UIA Congresses.
Both organizations wish to sign an Agreement to further this relationship in the following ways:
Esa Mohamed, President of UIA Joseph Rykwert, President of CICA
