After two years in Berlin, the World Architecture Festival will move their 2018 edition to Amsterdam for three days of talks, design presentations, and award ceremonies featuring cutting-edge contemporary works and some of the most prominent figures in architecture today. The festival, which will be held from 28-30 November at the Amsterdam RAI Exhibition and Convention Center, will give nearly 500 practices from around the world a chance to present their designs to a group of over 100 designated international judges. These judges will be lead by the 2018 Super Jury, a select group including Sir David Adjaye OBE (principal, Adjaye Associates), Nathalie de Vries (director and co-founder, MVRDV), Mohsen Mostafavi (dean, Harvard Graduate School of Design) and Li Xiadong (founder, Li Xiaodong Atelier). The judges will select winners in over 30 categories, highlighting both completed and future projects. The shortlist of projects up for awards at the festival was announced a month ago.
