Awarding excellence in architecture Since 2008, the world’s largest architectural stage has been the World Architecture Festival (WAF). In its programming, the festival focuses both on the presentation of the international architecture scene, as well as a competition aimed at awarding and celebrating excellent works. While the main prize goes to the World Building of the Year, there are various additional categories in which the judges select their favourites. In the following article we explore not only the awards, but the many different events and facets of the WAF. TEXT: THOMAS SCHROERS
