Our Activities

Every three years, the Aua congress brings together hundreds of architects and students of architecture from all over the continent.

AUA congresses focus on a topic of current concern to the profession, highlight the issues with which the architects of Africa are faced at a given point in time, and bring to light the solutions they can provide while facilitating contact and exchange among professionals from different parts of the world and different backgrounds. The AUA General Assembly selects the host countries and cities for the Union`s congresses based on submissions made by the Member Countries interested in organizing that event. The locations are chosen three years in advance.
