World Architecture Festival 2010

Now in its third year, the World Architecture Festival has become the platform for the world’s biggest architecture contest that attracts architects worldwide to battle it out in Barcelona. From November 3–5 this year, over 500 entries from 65 countries competed for awards in just 15 completed buildings categories, with three Australian practices emerging victorious. International superstars met the industry’s unsung, with each to have gone head-to-head in front of a jury of architecture luminaries to take out the grand title of 2010 World Building of the Year. We take a look at some of the winners from this year’s Festival.
