Background

NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF ARCHITECTURE AND URBAN PLANNING

The National Institute of Architecture and Urban Planning is a newly established, state-owned cultural institution, acting through campaigns, exhibitions, and educational and editorial activities, with the aim of shaping social awareness, promoting architectural and urban-planning culture, and endeavouring to preserve the national architectural heritage of the twentieth century. The Institute also conducts research on topics related to architecture and urban planning, and disseminates knowledge in these fields. An important part of the Institute’s mission is day-to-day collaboration with architects, local government agencies and public space users in order to improve the quality of public spaces, to find balance in their development, and achieve consensus in the process of their design and planning.
