World Architecture Festival 2018

WAF is where the world architecture community meets to celebrate, learn, exchange and be inspired.

WAF is the world’s largest annual, international, live architectural event. It includes the biggest international architectural awards programme in the world, dedicated to celebrating excellence via live presentations to an audience of high-profile delegates and international juries.

The 2018 World Architecture Festival (WAF) comprises:

  • A thematic conference programme (this year based on the theme ‘Identity’)
  • Electronic gallery of all Award entries
  • Exhibition area
  • Live judging of finalists’ projects
  • Architectural tour programme
  • Networking and social events including partner fringe events
  • Gala Awards Dinner

INSIDE World Festival of Interiors runs alongside WAF, with its own awards and conference programme.  Delegates have access to both events.

WAF and INSIDE are organised by EMAP, publishers of The Architectural Review and The Architects’ Journal.
