It has been amazing to be part of an award-winning team. When you look across the range and quality of projects put forward for the WAF Awards, to be shortlisted and then become associated with the overall winner is a momentous achievement for us.
Great opportunity to connect with international architects and understand what happens in the global context.
WAF is a wonderful mix of theory and the reality of everyday practice in the presentations, the jury-comments, the lectures, the debates and exhibitions. The excursions, parties and dinner offer excellent opportunities to network. WAF is the most inclusive cross-border event on the architectural horizon!
