Inaugural World Architecture Festival


May 1st, 2008

International media group Emap is inviting architects worldwide to enter their projects into the World Architecture Festival awards, which will celebrate the work, concerns and aspirations of the international architectural community.

The Festival will take place in Barcelona, Spain from 22 – 24 October 2008 at the Centre Conventions International, Barcelona (CCIB).

Buildings that have been completed between 1st January 2007 and 20th June 2008 are eligible to enter the awards.

Entries are invited from 15th April until 20th June 2008 and architects are encouraged to complete the entry procedure on the website.

Headed by Lord Norman Foster (pictured), the international judging panels will comprise architects, allied professionals, clients and critics, including a super-jury, who will decide the ‘best in show’ prize.

All entries will be exhibited at the Festival in a huge gallery modelled on the Barcelona grid.

The 16 awards categories are as follows:

Civic, New & old, Culture, Office, Energy, waste & recycling, Pleasure, Health, Production, Holiday, Religion & contemplation, Home, Shopping, Learning, Sport, Nature, Transport.
