The World Architectural Festival has today announced the finalists for their 2018 awards, which include two transport and two education projects by Warren and Mahoney; Memorial Bridge, Christchurch, Waterview Connection (in collaboration with Boffa Miskell and the Well Connected Alliance), The University of Waikato Marae and Multi-Purpose Facility and Lincoln University and AgResearch Joint Facility (in association with Woods Bagot, Boffa Miskell and Powell Fenwick).

Managing director John Coop says Warren and Mahoney is delighted to have so many of its projects receive this level of recognition on a global stage.

“The World Architecture Festival gives us the opportunity to take New Zealand design to the world. As New Zealanders, we are outward looking, and always seeking new creative possibilities.

“All of these projects are the result of understanding the essential purpose and context of a project, working closely with our clients, the community and iwi to express identity and enhance belonging.

“To achieve four project finalists is proof that our design approach resonates beyond our shores,” says Coop.

World Architecture Festival organisers noted that the competition received a record number of entries this year, making a shortlist nomination a true feat. The complete shortlist includes 536 projects from 81 countries across its 39 categories. Each of the category winners will be announced at the festival in November, and winners will go on to compete for the World Building of the Year award or the Future Project of the Year award.

The World Architecture Festival is dedicated to celebrating, sharing and inspiring outstanding architecture. Held in Amsterdam this year, the WAF awards sit at the heart of the festival, the only global awards programme where architects present their completed buildings and future projects live to a panel of internationally renowned judges and delegates from around the world.
