Various Architects’ Spark! Award winning design for the Mobile Performance Venue has been added to the shortlist of nominated projects for the World Architecture Festival 2009! The World Architecture festival is the world’s largest architectural summit, with a yearly award ceremony for completed projects. This year the WAF has also created a category for Future Buildings and our design is one of only 6 chosen for the the Experimental Projects category.
We will be in Barcelona on the 5’th of November, together with our engineer collaborators from Ramboll UK to present the project before the jury and attendees of the conference.
From the WAF press release:
– World Architecture Festival 2009 focuses on architecture in the new world economy –
The world’s biggest architectural summit, the World Architecture Festival, will take place in Barcelona for the second year running, with new opportunities for the industry to showcase its work as part of the word’s biggest architectural Awards programme.
Programme Director Paul Finch confirmed that following its successful inaugural year, World Architecture Festival (WAF) will again take place in Barcelona at the Centre Convencions International Barcelona (CCIB) from 4th to 6th November 2009.
The Festival’s thematic exhibition, ‘Less Does More’ will examine the challenges facing architects in the new world economy. The exhibition will focus on how creative design, imagination and innovative thinking can reduce the amount of time, energy, material and finance needed to create buildings and cities – producing more value for less cost.
