World Architecture Festival 2013

With the deadline fast approaching on 10 June, entries are pouring in for the world’s largest live and truly global architectural awards programme - the World Architecture Festival (WAF) Awards, which take place in Singapore from 2 – 4 October 2013.

Paul Finch, WAF Programme Director said: “As the World Architecture Festival continues to grow in scale, scope and stature, so too does the quality of award entries we receive. The truly global nature of the festival is reflected by the huge number of project countries, which demonstrate the demand for innovative architectural design across the world despite the continued economic uncertainty. With the deadline fast approaching, we’re calling on all practices to get their entries in so that they are in contention for winning one of the most coveted prizes in architecture – The World Building of the Year award.”

The WAF awards are renowned for their highly innovative format which allows a range of entrants, from leading global architectural firms to small practices, to compete as equals on a global stage. All shortlisted entrants present their work live to WAF’s esteemed panel of international judges in over 300 public crits. Entries have already been received from practices including Weiss/Manfredi Architects, WOHA, Ronald Lu and Partners, Eight Inc., Turenscape and Nikken Sekkei.

The World Architecture Festival (WAF), the world’s largest, live, inclusive and interactive global architecture event, is returning for its sixth successive year. Building on last year’s successful relocation from Barcelona to Singapore, the festival will once again be taking place at the spectacular Marina Bay Sands resort. The festival is being held in association with Singapore Institute of Architects (SIA)’s festival of ideas about the city, Archifest.

The WAF Awards sit at the heart of the festival, and will see practices from around the world compete across 29 individual award categories for global recognition. Competing across three category groups of completed buildings, landscape projects and future projects, previous WAF Award entrants have ranged from renowned global architectural firms to small local practices.

Architects of every shortlisted project are invited to attend the festival to give a live presentation to a panel of judges, asserting their case for why their project should win. The winners of each category are put forward to compete for the coveted World Building of the Year award, presided over by the festival’s ‘super-jury’, with the presentation of the award being the culmination of WAF 2013.

World Architecture Festival is collocated with INSIDE World Festival of Interiors INSIDE celebrates the world’s finest interiors of the last year a nd also has at its heart a live international awards programme. The entries deadline for the INSIDE Festival Awards is also 10 June.
