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.
Gansen Govender, Senior Project Manager, GHD
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!
