With ArchDaily serving as a media partner and as part of the jury, we are excited to present to you the 301 projects that have been shortlisted for the 2012 World Architecture Festival (WAF) awards – the world’s biggest architectural awards programme! Now in its fifth year, the three day festival will kick off October 3rd at a new venue in Singapore. This new location has prompted an increased level of participation from from Asia, particularly Australia and Singapore, but also from China, India and Japan. This year, more than 500 entries from almost 50 countries were submitted. The projects shortlisted reflect the festival’s theme of ‘Rethink and Renew’, highlighting the need for innovative and creative approaches to existing buildings and areas, while posing the question of whether or not architecture is fulfilling the role that it should and delivering for those it serves. Each practice will be judged as equals as they present their designs live to an international judging panel and festival delegates. The awards are divided into three main sections: Completed Buildings, Landscape Architecture and Future Projects, with various award sub-categories. Continue after the break to review the complete shortlist!
