World Architecture Festival invites entries for 2016 awards

The World Architecture Festival (WAF) is now accepting entries for the 2016 WAF Awards, which will take place in Berlin in November.

The prestigious competition is divided into 30 project categories for completed architectural projects, future projects and landscape projects.

Leisure architects can enter their designs for cultural buildings, hotels, sports facilities and leisure-led developments.

The deadline for entries is 19 May and the shortlist will be decided in June by a panel of industry professionals – including David Chipperfield and Christoph Ingenhoven – alongside former winners and festival speakers.

All finalists will be invited to present their projects live to judging panels at the festival from 16-18 November before the final category winners are chosen.

Winners from each category will then be considered by a 'super-jury', who will select the World Building of the Year, the Future Project of the Year and the Landscape of the Year.

Architects and designers seeking consideration in the competition must pay an entry fee of €925 (US$1,000, £713), although an early bird rate is available before 28 April.

Last year’s winners were OMA and Buro Ole Scheeren, whose Interlace ‘vertical village’ housing development in Singapore won Building of the Year, and Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), who took home the award for Future Project of the Year with their Vancouver House skyscraper.

Turenscape International's Yanweizhou Park won the Landscape of the Year award.

WAF is the world's largest annual gathering of architects. The event, which this year will be held in the Berlin Arena, features talks, panel discussions and exhibitions.
