Description

Appointed Member of the Steering Committee of the Education Commission and Validation Council, International Union of Architects (2017-2020)
Appointed 7/03/2018

The Education Commission, working in parallel with the UNESCO-UIA Validation Council, is the “keeper and advocate” of the UNESCO/UIA Charter for Architectural Education and the UNESCO/UIA Validation System. The charter, jointly approved by UNESCO and the UIA, lays out a series of guidelines aimed at ensuring that young architects are capable of meeting the professional, social, and cultural challenges of the modern world.

The purposes of the commission and council are to advance the quality of, and access to, architectural education programs globally, act as a UIA think-tank for education topics, and to oversee the validation of architectural study programs and recognition of accreditation systems. The charter also serves as the foundation of other global architectural education systems and agreements, including the Canberra Accord, the RIBA, and the Commonwealth Association of Architects.
