Exhibition from 6th to 8th October 2021 - Tempus 2 Room / Tempus Hallway

And from 11th to 22nd October 2021 - Bar Serpent


The United Nations Office at Geneva and the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) present an exhibition featuring 17 sketches by the international renowned, award-winning architect Norman Foster, who pioneered innovative high-tech architectural solutions and adopted energy-efficient and ecological designs in his buildings and urban design projects. He is the President of the Norman Foster Foundation, created to 'promote interdisciplinary thinking and research to help new generations of architects, designers and urbanists to anticipate the future'.

The sketches present visions of city planning that incorporate concepts of sustainable urban development and innovation such as energy efficient housing, sensitivity to local culture and values, the upgrading of informal settlements and access to green areas.

The exhibition takes place on the margin of the Ministerial Meeting on Urban Development, Housing and Land Management on “Affordable, adequate, and resilient housing in liveable cities, including cities which face extreme weather conditions”.
