World Architecture Festival is the world's largest festival dedicated to celebrating and sharing architectural excellence from across the globe.
New for 2020, WAFVirtual promises to be the world’s must-attend virtual architecture festival. Taking place from the 30 November – 4 December, it will consist of panel discussions, special WAF prizes, networking events and talks. WAFVirtual will bring together the global architecture community at a crucial time.
That´s what the jury tells:
"This project fully answers the challenge of the competition with a genuine transformation of isolation. It does so by imaginatively tackling a neglected and even unpromising topic for architecture: the huge rates deaths from Covid in care home round the world. Inspiration is taken from the relationship between boats and jetties; living units are prefabricated in timber to generous dimensions deriving from the logistics of transporting them to site. The presentation is elegant and beautifully drawn; and the proposal would make a great place to live with or without Covid."
