There is just one week left to enter the World Architecture Festival awards, with judges keen to see entrants for the structural design category.
The world’s finest architects will converge in Barcelona from November 2-4 for the World Architecture Festival (WAF). Alongside speakers, academics, architects and engineers from around the world, WAF features an awards programme – and there are only four weeks left until entries close. The last day to submit your scheme for judgement by a panel of high profile industry leaders, and the chance to win World Building of the Year, is 30 June.
A key category for NCE readers is the structural design.
“This category allows the art of engineering to be celebrated at WAF,” said Wilkinson Ayre director Keith Brownlie.
“Entering into awards gives your project the chance to be seen in a global context. We’re setting a high benchmark and want to see great projects that blend engineering and architecture.”
There are nine categories in total, with up to four shortlisted for each.
Final jury reviews entries on Wednesday/Thursday and picks nine category winners. They present in a crit room on Friday; winners and overall winner receive awards on Friday evening.
- Composites/synthetics (eg carbon)
- Glass (where used structurally)
- Masonry (for example brick and stone)
- Metal (steel, aluminium)
- Spans (for example bridges, stadiums, big sheds)
- Tensile (for example fabric roofs)
Categories for architecture awards range from health, landscape, transport, and shopping. The interior awards will feature accolades for residential and restaurant, to office and hotel use. Complete your brochure online either at worldarchitecturefestival.com or insidefestival.com.
