World Architecture Festival 2021
World Architecture Festival will now take place on the 1-3 December in Lisbon. We want to ensure WAF and Inside offer a safe and enjoyable experience for all our attendees. With the pandemic situation looking difficult in Europe over the coming weeks we believe our previous dates of 23-25 June may be too soon to guarantee this. However, we feel confident that mass vaccination programmes across the world will have proved effective by the autumn, so have decided on the new dates in that light. Read the full announcement.
Awards entries will remain open until Friday 7 May 2021. Submit your completed buildings, future projects, landscape and interior projects into the awards to be in with a chance of presenting and winning at WAF Lisbon!
