World Architecture Festival Announces Judges for 2019 Awards

Spread the Word

The World Architectural Festival (WAF) has announced the judges for the 2019 awards.  The festival is one of the most significant events in the architecture industry. 

The event is held on an annual basis. The judges review a shortlist of 200 projects, which compete for 31 awards in various categories. From those 200 shortlisted projects, the World Building of the Year will be awarded based on the judges’ interviews and evaluations. 

The World Architecture Festival was first held in 2008 and hosted in Barcelona for four years. The host city then was awarded to Singapore for four years. Since 2016, the host city has rotated between Berlin and Amsterdam. All the entries are published in the World Buildings Directory online database, and each year the World Architecture Festival publishes a list of the winners of the awards.

“This was a real eye opener and a brilliant event in that everything happening around the world is brought to a single event. I was really impressed with the topics and speakers especially on how architecture sees the future of the world and the global issues that are being addressed.”
