Entries are now open for the World Architecture Festival Awards. The awards program is a major part of the World Architecture Festival, which takes place in Barcelona from 4–6 November, 2009. At the festival, shortlisted projects in 42 categories will be presented “live” to juries over two days, with winning projects in each category then competing for the prestigious Building of the Year award. In addition to the Completed Building section, this year also sees three new sections added to the competition – Future Projects, Interiors and Fitouts, and Structural Design. All entries in all sections are exhibited at the festival, which also includes the thematic exhibition Less Does More, a seminar program and keynote addresses from leading contemporary architects.
Architecture Australia, the journal of the Australian Institute of Architects, is the Australian media partner for the World Architecture Festival. Editor Justine Clark joins the jury again this year, along with significant architects and editors from abroad.
Entries close 26 June, 2009.
