    28 August 2013

    A giraffe house in New Zealand, a monastery in Taiwan, a treehouse in the USA and a research station in Antarctica are among the 302 projects that have been shortlisted for the sixth annual World Architecture Festival (WAF) Awards 2013 – the world’s biggest architectural awards programme.

    Heydar Aliyev Centre - Zaha Hadid ArchitectsTaking place at this year’s Festival, the WAF Awards 2013 have attracted entries from almost 50 countries. This year’s festival is being held in Singapore for the second time and whilst the organisers have again seen strong interest from South East Asia, entries from Europe and North America have increased by almost 40% and 14% respectively.

    Buildings designed by global architects such as Zaha Hadid Architects, Tadao Ando Architect & Associates and Robert A.M. Stern Architects feature amongst projects by smaller, local practices.

    Practices will compete across 29 individual award categories, spanning completed buildings, landscape projects and future projects, presenting their shortlisted designs live to international judging panels and festival delegates.

    Paul Finch, WAF Programme Director, said: ‘Following such strong competition at last year’s awards, expectations were understandably high for the WAF Awards 2013, and the entries did not disappoint. All eyes are now on the festival’s venue, the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, where the architects will battle to win their individual categories, with victorious projects competing for the coveted World Building of the Year award.”
