The search for the winning projects for the 2015 World Architecture Festival (WAF) awards has already begun and now is the time to submit your best projects for consideration. WAF is the world’s largest architectural festival and awards event, annually recognizing exceptional architecture projects from around the globe.
Projects are considered across 30 categories and every entry will be listed on WAF’s global architecture archive, worldbuildingsdirectory.com. If selected as a finalist, you will be invited to the WAF festival in November at Singapore’s Suntec Convention & Exhibition Centre to present your project in front of the WAF jury, which includes Kerry Hill, Sir Peter Cook, Sou Fujimoto, Benedetta Tagliabue, Charles Jencks, and Manuelle Gautrand.
This year WAF will be held from November 4-6. The festival features three days of conferences, exhibitions and lectures, during which the awards ceremony will take place. Last year’s theme was “Architects and the City” and featured Rocco Yim and Moshe Safdie as keynote speakers.
Winning projects are also considered for the World Building, Future Project or Landscape of the Year award. Past winners have included Zaha Hadid Architects, BIG, Snøhetta and Vo Trong Nghia. Prizes for small projects, use of wood and use of color will also be awarded.
Submit your project before April 3 to receive an early bird rate. Learn more about the award categories and how to enter here and stay tuned for updates on the 2015 Festival Program!
