The winners from the World Architecture Festival (WAF) 2015 have been announced
After seeing over 2000 architects and designers from across the globe through its doors, the 2015 edition of WAF has drawn to a close and announced the winners of its prestigious awards.
The big winner of the night was the Singapore residential project Interlace by Ole Sheeren for OMA which took out the title of ‘World Building of the Year’. World Architecture Festival Director Paul Finch praised the project, saying, “The Interlace is blazing a trail with an example of bold, contemporary architectural thinking. The project presents an alternative way of thinking about developments which might otherwise become generic tower clusters.”
The Interlace is now the eighth project to claim the illustrious title of World Building of the Year, since its inception at the annual World Architecture Festival in 2008. The home project win marks the culmination of the Festival's four-year run in Singapore, before it moves to Berlin in 2016.
Other winners included BIG who won the ‘Future Project’ category, for Vancouver House, Canada, while Turenscape International collected the award for ‘Landscape of the Year’ for Yanweizhou Park, China.
