The World Architecture Festival (WAF) will celebrate the work, concerns and aspirations of the international architectural community, during a three-day event taking place in Barcelona, Spain from 22 to 24 October 2008.
The Festival will be an annual opportunity to compare and contrast the extraordinary range of designs created by a profession which has always looked beyond national borders to the wider world of architectural culture.
At the heart of the Festival will be the biggest architectural awards programme in the world.
Villa The Heerlijkheid was selected for the shortlist out of a longlist of 722 entreis from 63 countries worldwide.
The Villa is part of Park The Heerlijkheid, initiated by WiMBY! (Welcome into My Backyard!) in 2001.
