World Architecture Festival “WAF” 2011

World Architecture Festival is the world’s largest, live, truly inclusive and interactive global architectural exhibition. It is a unique meeting point for architects, suppliers and clients, attracting hundreds of entries and visitors from all over the world.

One of the projects presented by ITHAKA – Architecture and Design studio has been shortlisted in the house category. “Zodchestvo” house is a conceptual project created in 2010, based on the principles of volume distortion and creation of an abstract visual image. Representing 59 different countries, the shortlist was selected from a record-breaking number of entries to the international awards, which celebrate excellence in global architectural design.

Paul Finch, WAF programme director, said: “The WAF Awards celebrate architectural excellence all over the world and allow architects to showcase their talent and their unique responses to the ever-changing economic climate. There is now an increasing need for innovative approaches to architecture, inspiring architects and designers to think in new ways about buildings. It’s encouraging that the quality of this year’s entries is the highest we’ve ever seen and we look forward to seeing which projects both the judges select as the winners.”
