Thomas Vonier was elected the president of the International Union of Architects (UIA) during the UIA World Congress and General Assembly in Seoul, South Korea earlier this month.

“We must show the world how architecture can help to resolve the difficult issues facing society and our planet,” Vonier said during his campaign. “The UIA is here to unify architects worldwide, influence global policies and outcomes and advance the power of architecture to meet human needs.”

Vonier has completed projects in Europe, East Asia, Africa and the Middle East. The current president of the AIA, he has also served as the secretary general of the UIA for the past three years.

“Tom’s unique perspective and experience will help us all share the power of architecture worldwide,” said Robert Ivy, CEO and Executive Vice President of the AIA.

In reference to Vonier’s previous experience, AIA’s First Vice President Carl Elefante said that “Tom demonstrated strong leadership through a deep understanding of the international architecture community, and a clear vision for unity.”
