    Awkward moment when a Libeskind building is nominated for an award that doesn't contain the words: 'world's worst…'

  • http://www.3dastudio.com Russell Thomas

    Rather interesting how eclectic the architectural landscape is. Primitive geometrics are really making a statement it seems.

  • joh

    Wow. All I can say is that WAF is on the verge of loosing some major cred when it comes to architectural awards. Zoomlion Headquarters Exhibition Center… really!?

    Seems this is every project which was nominated? For the official shortlist visit http://www.worldarchitecturefestival.com/shortlis
