The World Architecture Festival (WAF) Awards, the world’s biggest architectural awards program, has released its 2013 shortlist. Taking place this year at the sixth annual World Architecture Festival in Singapore between October 2-4, the WAF Awards 2013 have attracted entries from almost 50 countries.
The event is being held in association with Singapore Institute of Architects (SIA)’s festival of ideas about the city, Archifest.
"Following such strong competition at last year’s awards, expectations were understandably high for the WAF Awards 2013, and the entries did not disappoint," said Paul Finch, WAF Program Director. "From the subtle to the spectacular, from a four room house to an 80-story 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.”
WAF is collocated with INSIDE World Festival of Interiors. INSIDE celebrates the world’s finest interiors of the last year and also has at its heart a live international awards program.
Following is a very small selection of shortlisted projects in their respective categories.
Entries were welcomed in 29 categories, spanning completed buildings, landscape projects and future projects.
