Following last year’s success in London, World Architecture Day 2013 is back and it's going to be bigger, better and bolder than ever. Set within the backdrop of Archtober, and in partnership with the AIA NY, the three day event will be hosted in New York and be packed full of exciting tours of architectural gems, inspirational workshops and the centerpiece to the summit: a fascinating day of speeches, forums and discussions.

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.

Register now to book your place alongside global design leaders and discuss crucial boundary-pushing initiatives from around the world.
