As opposed to all the other design events worldwide, WAF is the only one that offers you an opportunity to study 500+ design presentations of architectural projects.  At the same time, larger issues on topics that are contextual & relevant to the field are being discussed at various venues within the event. WAF is the one architectural event which just has to be experienced every year due to the sheer magnitude of the insight it offers into what is being evolved in architectural thoughts worldwide.

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!

The Word Architecture Festival is a rare if not unique occasion bringing together a large number of the finest architects from around the world under one roof, to exchange and share ideas and to learn from each other. It is this invaluable educational aspect that brought me back to WAF for the second time; for any architects interested in learning about the best works created by other colleagues worldwide and listening to their live presentations, WAF is the place to go.
