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 2nd – 4th October 2013. 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 29 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 2013. This year’s super jury includes Ken Yeang - Llewelyn Davies Yeang; Patrick Bellew - Atelier Ten; Jeanne Gang - Studio Gang Architects; Dietmar Eberle - Baumschlager Eberle and Ken Tadashi Oshima -University of Washington.
- 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.
