Becoming increasingly important, within the global context of the COVID-19 pandemic, the topic of Urban Health is permeating almost all the discussions at the 27th World Congress of Architects. The UIA2021RIO programme encompasses the 40th Annual Seminar of the Public Health Group (PHG), which is one of the working groups of the International Union of Architects (UIA).

Initially scheduled for 2020, the PhD Seminar was also postponed, due to the pandemic. As a result, the UIA is issuing a second call for papers. The new deadline for sending in abstracts and papers for this Seminar is March 15. (During this public health crisis, architects all over the world have been pursuing solutions for emergency situations, as well as contexts that were already critical and have grown worse. We thus expect to present a very diverse collection of experiences at the PHG/UIA Seminar in Rio de Janeiro, to be studied, analysed and examined at new skills, in the light of so much knowledge acquired during the past few months,” says architect Jerônimo de Moraes, a researcher with the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation (Fiocruz) and the coordinator of the 40th PHG/UIA Seminar.

There are two transversal themes proposed for the papers: Health and Cities, which will explore the impacts of urban characteristics on the quality of life of their residents; and Architecture for Health, focus on health treatment buildings.

This Seminar is organised by the Brazilian Institute of Architects (IAB) jointly with Fiocruz and the Brazilian Hospital Development Association (ABDEH).
