The event will be held from 1 to 3 October at Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands, in conjunction with the Inside World Festival of Interiors.
Practices will compete across 30 individual award categories within three category groups of Completed Buildings, Landscape Projects and Future Projects, with architects of shortlisted entries getting to present their projects in the event’s famed live crit session. The winners of each category will also go on to compete for the coveted ‘World Building of the Year’, presided over by the festival’s ‘super jury’. This year’s super jury will be led by renowned British architect Richard Rogers, and will include Rocco Yim, Julie Eizenberg, Enric Ruiz Geli and Peter Rich.
The theme for this year’s WAF main conference session is ‘Architects in the City’. Speakers will examine the contribution architects can make, and the way they affect and are affected by politics, infrastructure, planning, communities and technology.
