The 9 Winners From The World Architecture Festival

The annual, three-day World Architecture Festival was recently held, and it’s about more than just awards, as every attendees has the opportunity to take part in a bountiful buffet of lectures, talks and critiques, take a look at the numerous design installations and galleries, and network with fellow luminaries in the design field, ranging from students to the well-known professionals.  Since — as in most cases of ANY event — neither I and most likely you didn’t make it to the fabulous Marina Bay Sands Resort in Singapore for this year’s event, we can all finally enjoy a bit of the action –more so the result, anyway –, as the winners of the competition have finally been announced. Between the three major categories—Completed Buildings, Landscape Projects, and Future Projects—there’s a lot of wonderful, shiny, architectural eye candy from all over the world for you to stare at and not get slapped in the face.
