Now in its eighth year, the forthcoming 2015 World Architecture Festival Awards (WAF) will take place in Suntec in central Singapore following three days of intensive live presentations and judging. Following a $180 million modernisation programme, the redesigned space will host WAF’s soundproofed crit rooms, auditorium and Festival Hall Stage. Entries are now invited from architects and designers for the 2015 edition of what is described as “the biggest architectural awards programme in the world.” The awards are expected to attract more than 750 entries, around half of which will be shortlisted into thirty categories. The closing date for entries is the end of May, and shortlisting will take place in early June.
This year’s ‘superjurors’ include Royal Gold Medallist Sir Peter Cook (UK), Sou Fujimoto (Japan), Benedetta Tagliabue (Spain), Charles Jencks (UK/US), Kerry Hill (Singapore) and Manuelle Gautrand (France).
In addition, the WAF have announced that it will be coming to London for the first time between the 24th and 27th of June 2015. Hosted by the University of Westminster, WAF London will “celebrate international, game changing architecture, best practice, and design innovation.” Running in partnership with London’s Festival of Architecture (LFA), “WAF London will not only provide free access to an extraordinary display of global architecture, interiors and landscape, but will also serve as a new platform upon which both the profession and general public can participate in the ‘big conversations’ affecting international design.”
