"For architects to come together at WAF each year, for me, is such an important thing" Sir David Adjaye
What makes WAF the most important architecture event in the world?
Watch the 2018 highlights film to hear the reasons why over 2,200 architects from across the globe attend WAF each year and why no matter what size your practice is, WAF is the most important and inspiring event in the world for all architects to attend.
This was a real eye opener and a brilliant event in that everything happening around the world is brought to a single event. I was really impressed with the topics and speakers especially on how architecture see's the future of the world and the global issues that are being addressed.

Winning the award is a great encouragement for what we have done, for refreshing ourselves, our architecture. After WAF, we have been well-known from around the world and it gives us chances to meet and talk to different people, this is very important to us, especially when we are always searching for doing something new.
Sanjay Puri, Founder, Sanjay Puri Architects
WAF is a wonderful mix of theory and the reality of everyday practice in the presentations, the jury-comments, the lectures, the debates and exhibitions. The excursions, parties and joined dinner offer excellent opportunities to network. WAF is the most inclusive cross-border event on the architectural horizon!
