Entrance in Iceland, Ísland by Theresa Himmer

Tuesday, October 7th, 2014

Article source: Theresa Himmer

Working with the National Gallery of Iceland as both physical structure and institution, the project investigates classification and flow in light of the seemingly fantastical. Through the creation a new temporary entrance – a liminal zone – the fauna of Iceland is invited into the museum, human and non-human animals alike.

NOTES TO EDITORS

About WAF

World Architecture Festival (WAF) is the largest annual festival and live awards programme for the global architecture community.

It is taking place at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore between 1st – 3rd October 2014.

WAF has three central pillars of activity:

  • A wide-ranging conference programme, featuring keynote lectures, dozens of expert-led talks and seminars from thought-leading architects and designers from across the globe.
  • The world’s largest annual awards programme in which practices from around the world compete across 28 award categories for global recognition. Architects of every shortlisted project are invited to attend the festival to give a live presentation to a panel of judges, asserting their case for why their project should win. The winners of each category are put forward to compete for the coveted World Building of the Year award, presided over by the festival’s ‘super-jury’, with the presentation of the award being the culmination of WAF 2014. This year’s super jury members are Richard Rogers (chair), Rocco Yim, Julie Eizenberg, Enric Ruiz Geli and Peter Rich.
  • Three festival halls where all award entries are displayed in a unique awards gallery and where sponsors and suppliers can interact with delegates, make new contacts and showcase their services and products.

As well as this the festival plays host to an international, live student charrette; parties and receptions in some of Singapore’s most exciting locations; exclusive tours to Singapore’s most recent architectural sites of interest and a celebratory gala dinner and awards ceremony.

WAF has welcomed over 12,500 attendees to date, including over 2,000 in 2012. The Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, itself a previous WAF Award winner, is WAF’s home for the third year running, having been held in Barcelona for four years previously, providing the perfect backdrop to this truly global architectural extravaganza.

WAF are proud to work with Founder Partner, Grohe and Headline Partner, AzkoNobel.
