BEHIND THE SCENES
WHO WE ARE
The LUCA Luxembourg Center for Architecture is the leading national cultural actor for creating and sharing knowledge about the history and condition of architecture in Luxembourg. It also serves to promote the value of architecture and urban development as critical factors of civilisation and quality of life.
WHAT WE DO
Since its creation in 1992 as the "Foundation of Architecture and Engineering", a non-governmental non-profit organization, it has promoted the quality of the built environment as an essential value of contemporary society. It serves as a platform for information exchange and action for the whole community; from the curious amateur or committed citizen to the political decision-maker or professional actor. LUCA organises a broad and diverse cultural program for the public. Events include conferences and debates, exhibitions, guided tours, educational workshops, a Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennial, and the Luxembourg Architecture Award. Its publications, archives, and architectural library - which contains nearly 8000 references - offer the public additional research and documentation tools.
LUCA and its professional team, who work in cooperation with many national and international experts, seek to establish its position at the forefront of modern architecture while simultaneously reflecting on the past and debating the present of our built environment.
It is thanks to the support of our partners and sponsors that LUCA can fulfil its mission of promoting outstanding architecture in Luxembourg.
