ITU Headquarters: New Building Project


Following a decision by ITU Council, ITU held an international architecture competition for the design of a new headquarters building to be constructed at its current location in Geneva, Switzerland. Construction of the new building would start in 2022, with the opening in 2025.​​​


The new building will face the Place des Nations at the heart of International Geneva and create a new image of ITU's presence, technology commitment and sustainability. It is a unique opportunity for sponsors to contribute to the future home of ITU and gain recognition and visibility.
