World Architecture Festival comes to London

  • Comment

The World Architecture Festival (WAF) is set to make its London debut as part of the capital’s architecture festival in June

WAF, which is the largest global gathering in the architecture calendar, will run in partnership with the London Festival of Architect and will host events and a new satellite exhibition.

Running from 24 to 27 June 2015, the WAF London exhibition will showcase the projects shortlisted in its annual high-profile awards.

The schemes will then go on to be presented in front of the international jury at the festival in Singapore in November.

The plans were revealed by Terry Farrell at MIPIM earlier today (10 March). He said: ‘This is a fabulous opportunity to celebrate, educate and extend discourse on global issues as recommended in the Farrell Review.

‘London is the undisputed global capital of architecture and urbanism, with many of the world’s leading practices based there, and WAF London will only help to strengthen the Capital’s reputation for being the global Centre for design excellence.’
 
WAF programme director Paul Finch, added: ‘This is a new chapter for WAF and it is the first in a series of exciting global initiatives that are currently in development to significantly raise the profile of the global architectural communities it serves and create a truly global celebration of the world’s best architectural talent.’
