Winners of the World Architecture Festival 2013

The first two days of the World Architecture Festival 2013 have been intense. Keynotes by Charles Jencks and Dietmer Eberle and several other lectures filled the auditorium and festival hall stage, while hundreds of architects watched the live “crits,” during which firms presented their projects in front of the festival jury and an audience. Following these two days the winners of each category were finally announced, and today the super jury will choose the World Building of the Year, followed by a lecture by Sou Fujimoto.
