David Chipperfield named on ‘super jury’ for World Architecture Festival

The Interlace, Singapore by OMA/Buro Ole Scheeren
  • Comment

Stirling Prize-winner David Chipperfield will be among the judges selecting the World Building of the Year at the 2016 World Architecture Festival (WAF) which takes place in Berlin this November

Joining Chipperfield on the ‘super jury’ of the WAF Awards are Louisa Hutton of Sauerbruch Hutton and the Bartlett’s Frédéric Migayrou.

Last year the World Building of the Year prize went to OMA/Buro Ole Scheeren for The Interlace, and BIG won Future Project of the Year for Vancouver House.

Following four years in Singapore, the ninth World Architecture Festival is returning to its European roots. It will take place at Arena Berlin - Franz Ahrens’ 1927 former bus depot - between 16 and 18 November.

The WAF Awards celebrate global architectural excellence across completed buildings, future projects and landscape projects.

WAF and its sister event INSIDE World Festival of Interiors will welcome more than 2,000 architects and designers to the city for three days of conference programmes, awards, exhibitions and fringe events.

Chipperfield will also deliver a keynote speech, responding to the festival’s theme of ‘housing for everyone’. The festival’s conference programme will debate the significant contribution that architects can make to how we think about housing.

Entries are now open, ahead of the submission deadline on 19 May. Attracting entries from over 60 countries, shortlisted projects compete across 30 categories and all present live at the festival. The AJ is media partner for the awards.
