Entries into WAF Awards 2014

Singapore, Singapore

World Architecture Festival (WAF)

The deadline for all entries will be
30th May 2014.


Singapore, Singapore, 2014-03-26 - The annual search has begun to find the best new buildings on the planet as the World Architecture Festival (WAF) awards 2014, the world’s largest architectural awards programme, is now open for entries. The deadline for all entries will be 30th May 2014. The World Architecture Festival (WAF), the world’s largest, live, inclusive and interactive global architecture event, is returning for its seventh successive year. The festival will once again be taking place at the spectacular Marina Bay Sands resort in Singapore from 1st to 3rd October 2014.


The WAF awards sit at the heart of the festival, and will see practices from around the world compete across 28 individual award categories for global recognition. Competing across three category groups of completed buildings, landscape projects and future projects, previous WAF award entrants have ranged from renowned global architectural firms to small local practices. Architects of every shortlisted project are invited to attend the festival to give a live presentation to a panel of judges, asserting their case for why their project should win. The winners of each category are put forward to compete for the coveted World Building of the Year award, presided over by the festival’s ‘super-jury’, with the presentation of the award being the culmination of WAF 2014.

The Festival’s organisers, i2i Events Group, have today unveiled this year’s ‘super jury’ comprising of a selection of the world’s leading architects and designers, led by renowned British architect Richard Rogers. Rogers will be joined on the super-jury by Rocco Yim, Julie Eizenberg, Enric Ruiz Geli and Peter Rich.

Paul Finch, WAF Programme Director said: “This year’s awards will yet again demonstrate the tremendous strength and depth of talent of the global architectural community. Many hundreds of entries are expected, with practices of all sizes set to compete across numerous awards category in the hope of securing the festival’s biggest accolade, the World Building of the Year award.”

“We’re delighted to have Richard Rogers chairing this year’s super-jury. Over the course of a truly brilliant career, Richard has been responsible for some of the world’s most innovative, emotive and captivating buildings. We look forward to working with him and the rest of the super-jury with the difficult task of distinguishing the most compelling aspects of what we expect to be the most competitive edition of the awards to date.”

The theme for WAF’s main conference sessions in 2014 will be ‘Architects and 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. Presentations and panel discussions will feature prominent architects including Richard Rogers (UK); Rocco Yim (Hong Kong); and policy makers and urban organisations, including Thomas Wright, Executive Director of the Regional Plan Association of New York.

World Architecture Festival is collocated with INSIDE World Festival of Interiors www.insidefestival.com. INSIDE celebrates the world’s finest interiors of the last year and also has at its heart a live international awards programme. Entries for the INSIDE awards close on 30th May.

Notes to editors

About WAF
World Architecture Festival (WAF) is the largest annual festival and live awards programme for the global architecture community.

It will take place at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore between 1st – 3rd October 2014.

WAF has three central pillars of activity:
• A wide-ranging conference programme, featuring keynote lectures, dozens of expert-led talks and seminars from thought-leading architects and designers from across the globe.

• The world’s largest annual awards programme in which practices from around the world compete across 28 award categories for global recognition. Architects of every shortlisted project are invited to attend the festival to give a live presentation to a panel of judges, asserting their case for why their project should win. The winners of each category are put forward to compete for the coveted World Building of the Year award, presided over by the festival’s ‘super-jury’, with the presentation of the award being the culmination of WAF 2014. This year’s super jury members are Richard Rogers (chair), Rocco Yim, Julie Eizenberg, Enric Ruiz Geli and Peter Rich.

• Three festival halls where all award entries are displayed in a unique awards gallery and where sponsors and suppliers can interact with delegates, make new contacts and showcase their services and products.

As well as this the festival plays host to an international, live student charrette; parties and receptions in some of Singapore’s most exciting locations; exclusive tours to Singapore’s most recent architectural sites of interest and a celebratory gala dinner and awards ceremony.

WAF has welcomed over 12,500 attendees to date, including over 2,000 in 2012. The Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, itself a previous WAF Award winner, is WAF’s home for the third year running, having been held in Barcelona for four years previously, providing the perfect backdrop to this truly global architectural extravaganza.
