ITU competition for headquarters architecture opens till May 5

The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) Council has unveiled a competition for its headquarters architecture, reports ITRealms.

This follows a decision by ITU Council, to organize an architecture competition for the design of a new headquarters building in Geneva, Switzerland.

ITU, the United Nations' specialized agency for information and communication technologies (ICTs), has been headquartered at its Place des Nations site in Geneva since 1962.

ITRealms gathered that with this project to deliver a smart sustainable headquarters building integrated into the local environment, ITU reinforces its commitment to serving its Member States, private sector members and associates and academia from a location at the heart of international organizations' activity in Geneva.

“The new HQ will provide a forum for physical and virtual meetings via accessible, state-of-the-art conference facilities,” ITU official confirmed.

They further said the architecture competition is open to all professional architects duly registered in any of ITU's 193 Member States.

“It will be held in two rounds, and applications are to be submitted anonymously to the Jury, guided by the Swiss Society of Engineers and Architects (SIA), norm SIA-142” ITRealms gathered.

ITU, therefore advised those wishing to compete to find initial information at ITU's website, and may sign up at the Swiss public procurement platform, where they could find more information on the project and the invitation to tender.

“They can then follow the instructions to register for the competition by post only before May 5 2017” official said, stressing that the competition coordinator could be reached at: itucompetition@bc-a.ch
