The selectors would like to thank all the entrants for making their task so difficult and interesting - congratulations to all seven finalists but huge congratulations to the 2015 winner: School of Architecture and Planning, Bhopal, India - Past, Present and Future, re-imagining the City of Lakes

What is the WAF Student Charrette?

WAF's Student Charrette provides the opportunity for groups of architecture students from all over the world to present live to a panel of WAF's renowned judges. This 2015 theme was 'Anticipating the Unexpected'. Selected teams will be able to send up to eight students and two tutors to the Festival. There will be no delegate charge for teams (though they will have to pay for accommodation and travel).

Thank you to the Marco Goldschmied Foundation and  Perkins + Will for their support of the WAF Student Charrette
