The Belarus Union of Architects is organising the sixth edition of its international, young
architects biennial, the 'Leonardo Prize 2015', in Minsk, on 3 to 5 September 2015. The
biennial is part of celebrations for the city's 11th Festival of Architecture, organised to
promote national architecture as well as works by young architects from around the world.
Created in 2005, the event has become extremely popular in central and eastern Europe.
The last edition brought together 300 works from 28 European and Asian countries. The
event is supported by the Belarusian Ministries of Architecture and Construction, and
Culture, as well as the International Union of Architects. UIA Secretary General Thomas
Vonier will represent the union at this year's event.
