As architects from all over the world flock to South Korea for the UIA 2017 Seoul World Architects Congress, Danpal® is proud to announce that Mr. Han Young Keun, the Chairman of the Korean Institute of Architects, will appear at the conference as an invited speaker.
From September 3-10 at Seoul’s COEX Convention Center and Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP), an estimated 30,000 participants from all over the world will take part in the Union of International Architects (UIA) World Congress, a forum for professional and cultural exchange for the men and women who design the buildings that define the globe’s structural landscape. The conference will be held at the convention center’s 3F Hall C; the Danpal stand is F15.
Launched in 1948, the congress, which was first held in Lausanne, Switzerland, has been held 25 times; Seoul was honored with the hosting of the 26th UIA World Architects Congress. Each event focuses on a particular theme that has been inspired by eminent international representatives from the architectural, construction, and planning fields. The theme for the Seoul conference is Soul of the City.
The choice of Seoul as the site of the congress is a reflection upon the city’s unique features which blend the legacy of its 5,000-year history with its dynamic modern identity. Seoul has been recognized as a Creative City of Design by UNESCO for its rich cultural heritage and the creative policies which support architectural development.
With more than 30 years of experience in offering esthetic solutions for architects, Danpal® is particularly well suited to take part in this year’s conference. Our company, serving architectural needs on five continents, has supported a multitude of innovative projects all over the world. By choosing Danpal® for your architectural vision, you are choosing from a rainbow of light to select just the right paneling system possessing peerless diversity and a level of creativity that inspires architects and their clients alike. Danpal® is well regarded in the industry for the quality of its products and we look forward to seeing many of the architects, owners, and contractors at the conference that we’ve had the pleasure of working with in the past.
For the attendees, the congress is a unique opportunity to network with colleagues, friends, and students, who come to share in the debates, enjoy the exhibition, and take part in the various tours and festivals that make the UIA the perfect meeting place.
The International Union of Architects is a non-governmental, global organization comprised of the national associations of architects. The goal of the UIA is to unite the architects of the world. The history of the past conferences demonstrates the success of this mission. From the 27 delegates who attended the founding conference in Lausanne in 1948 to its current roster of organizations from 124 countries and territories, UIA now represents more than one million architects of diverse nationalities and backgrounds. As the world becomes truly global, so do its buildings and the creative impulses that mark a structure in one part of the world can eagerly be adapted to suit the geography of another region. Architects are diplomats with blueprints and the world that they build is one which reflects the latest research in sustainability, environmental awareness, and the timeless beauty of the structures in which we work, study, entertain and live our lives.
Looking forward to see you in Danpal stand – F15 at the convention center’s (3F, Hall C).
