We are delighted to announce that our one-off house, the Quest, has been shortlisted in this year’s World Architecture Festival Awards in the Future Projects House category.
World Architecture Festival is the world's largest, live, global architectural awards programme, nicknamed the Architectural Oscars. Held annually in Singapore, the WAF annually recognises the world’s most amazing architecture projects.
Shortlisted practices are invited to present their project this October at the Marina Bay Sands resort in Singapore in front of a “super jury, ” chaired by Richard Rogers, that includes architects Rocco Yim, Julie Eizenberg, Enric Ruiz Geli, Peter Rich and more.
Practices of all sizes from around the world will compete across 28 individual award categories for global recognition. The winners of these categories will then be considered by the jury for the coveted World Building of the Year Award at the culmination of WAF 2014.
The live architecture presentations and debates will coincide with a seminar and keynotes by industry leaders focusing on “Architects and the City. ” Though a complete list of participants have yet to be released, Richard Rogers and Rocco Yim, as well as policy makers and urban organisations, such as Thomas Wright, Executive Director of the Regional Plan Association of New York, are all expected to join.
