Sources from Brasilia stated that UN Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) have named the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro as the World Capital of Architecture for 2020. Meanwhile having defeated Paris and Melbourne, Rio will be the first city to receive the title under a program launched together by UNESCO and the International Union of Architects (UIA) in November 2018.



Reportedly Unesco Assistant Director General for Culture Ernesto Ottone Ramirez said "The World Capital of Architecture initiative underscores the common commitment of UNESCO and the UIA to preserve architectural heritage in the urban context”. Furthermore "Through the range and quality of its activities, the World Capital of Architecture in Rio de Janeiro will demonstrate the crucial role of architecture and culture in sustainable urban development."
