WAF Awards: deadline extended
The deadline to enter projects for the World Architecture Festival awards has been extended to Friday 8 July
The world’s finest architects will converge in Barcelona from November 2-4 for the World Architecture Festival. Alongside speakers, academics, and architects from around the world, WAF features an awards programme - and there is now only one week left until entries close. July 8 is the last day to submit your scheme for judgement by a panel of high profile industry leaders, and the chance to win World Building of the Year.
This month AJ subscribers can claim a special 25 per cent discount off entering and visiting WAF 2011 – plus this year all WAF entries and visitor passes are buy one get one free.
In 2011, WAF is joined by insidefestival.com - the new World Festival of Interiors. Held along side WAF, it will celebrate the world’s finest interior designs and their creators. The deadline for entries to inside has also been extended to 4 July.
‘Inside is a unique opportunity to look at developments in interior design across a wide range of disciplines like health, hospitality and transport. The nature of our industry is changing and we now operate in an increasingly global market. With its inclusion of interior design projects from around the world, Inside gives great insight into interior design practice today.’
Paul Priestman, co-director, Priestmangoode
Entries will be judged by distinguished leaders of industry such as the Will Alsop, Odile Decq, and Jo Noero, among a number of distinguished professionals.
‘WAF is the best in terms of breadth and depth of architects. Mostly you don’t get a meeting of world architects, but here you do. It’s number one.’
Architect, lecturer, and author Charles Jenks
