World Architecture Festival Awards 2013 shortlist announced

More than 300 projects from almost 50 countries have been shortlisted for the World Architecture Festival 2013 - the world's biggest architectural awards programme - taking place between October 2 - 4 at the Marina Bay Sands, Singapore.

The WAF is the world's largest, live, inclusive and interactive global architecture event. Projects designed by global architects such as Zaha Hadid, Tadao Ando, and Robert A.M. Stern will compete with smaller, local practices across 29 individual award categories.

Paul Finch, WAF Programme Director, said: ‘Following such strong competition at last year’s awards, expectations were understandably high for the WAF Awards 2013, and the entries did not disappoint. From the subtle to the spectacular, from a four room house to an 80 storey tower, the sheer quality and diversity reflected in the array of projects shortlisted today demonstrates the increasingly global nature of the event. All eyes are now on the festival's venue, the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, where the architects will battle to win their individual categories, with the victorious projects competing for the coveted World Building of the Year award.”

You can see the complete shortlist after the break. For more information, please visit WAF's official website.
