An event sure to inspire Manchester architects and others in the industry, a portion of this year's World Architecture Festival (WAF) is taking place between June 24th and 27th, making its debut in London, a four-day exhibition featuring landscapes, interiors, future projects and buildings from all over the world.
Free to attend, the event will see the finalists of the World Architecture Festival displayed exclusively for the first time, with a programme of talks also being put on looking at how the environment can be improved through architecture and design, as well as issues affecting communities and cities, and new architecture.
Known as the Oscars of architecture, the WAF Awards form a central part of the main festival itself (taking place in Singapore between November 4th and 6th), an event that brings together some 2,000 delegates from around the world.
As the organisers observed: "Winning a WAF award is your passport to the international architecture scene. Both professionally and personally transformational, the WAF awards are your gateway to global exposure, recognition and success."
A great networking opportunity for architects in Manchester and elsewhere, you'll be able to discover new architecture and techniques for yourself, instilling new ideas and inspiration to help tackle the design challenges of today. You will also be able to go on architecture-led city tours of Singapore, with exclusive site visits that take you off the guidebook routes to uncover some of the metropolis's hidden gems.
You can find out more about the even on the official WAF website, as well as following them on Facebook and Twitter.
