The format of the event is unique as the professionals of the participating firms present to, and receive live feedback and commendation from, the WAF’s jury, which this year includes architects such as such as William Alsop, Sir Peter Cook, Sou Fujimoto, Dietmar Eberle, Jeanne Gang, Marcio Kogan, and Ole Scheeren, among many others. It will be a live architecture performance, where you will debate, learn and be inspired.
The World Architecture Festival also includes a seminar and keynotes with renowned international architects (full list TBA). In these and other activities, you will be able to exchange ideas with over 2000 architects representing more than 65 countries, as well as broaden your horizons and your contacts.

In this video, Cathleen McGuigan, editor-in-chief of Architectural Record, discusses gender within the professional setting, specifically within the world of architecture at the Harvard GSD.
