World Architecture Festival

Il World Architecture Festival è il simposio competitivo più importante a livello mondiale sul tema dell’architettura contemporanea che, dal 2008, riunisce ogni anno circa 2.000 architetti e designer da 70 Paesi e una giuria di più di 150 esperti, proponendo un ricco programma di iniziative, conferenze, premiazioni, mostre ed eventi collaterali. Anche quest’anno, moltissimi i progetti arrivati in finale, più di 530 selezionati a partire dalle oltre mille candidature pervenute. Cina e Hong Kong, Australia, Regno Unito, Stati Uniti e India sono i Paesi con il maggior numero di progetti in corsa. Come di consueto gli studi di maggiore rilievo del panorama internazionale − come Zaha Hadid Architects, Heatherwick Studio, Bjarke Ingels Group, MVRDV, Ennead Architects, Rafael Viñoly Architects, Herzog & de Meuron, Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, Grimshaw, UNStudio, Perkins+Will, Shanghai Urban Architectural Design e White Arkitekter – sono stati affiancati da realtà emergenti. Tra i selezionati, anche tre studi italiani: Mario Cucinella Architects, noa* network of architecture, MoDus Architects.

Brillanti e coinvolgenti i talk e le lecture tenutisi durante le tre giornate del WAF, aperti da Andrew Whalley con il suo speech intitolato ZERO sull’architettura a basso consumo energetico necessaria per vincere la sfida dell’Antropocene, seguito, tra le altre, dalle conferenze di Massimiliano Fuksas, Elizabeth Diller, Kim Herforth Nielsen, Ben van Berkel, Sir Peter Cook, Angus Campbell, Nigel Coates, Marc Koehlerè.
