The annual shortlist of new buildings and landscapes from around the world, completed between 2020 and this year, has just been announced by the World Architecture Festival (WAF).
Organized around the current theme of Together, the 420 total projects will vie for the live-judged festival’s 43 category prizes and culminating World Building, Future Project, Interior, and Landscape of the Year awards at the three-day event, which kicks off in Lisbon on November 30th. A new International Building Beauty Prize has been added for the 2022 cycle as well.
This year’s expanded shortlist includes projects from Foster + Partners, Zaha Hadid Architects, MVRDV,and a host of other large international firms, in addition to a number of lesser-heralded and smaller projects hailing from countries like Portugal, Thailand, Finland, and Malaysia.
WAF Program Director Paul Finch said: “The number and quality of entries this year has been very encouraging, and we are looking forward to meeting in-person to carry out category judging," referencing the festival's two-year live and in-person hiatus due to Covid-19.
