The search has once again begun to find the best buildings in the world as the World Architecture Festival (WAF) Awards 2011, the world’s largest architectural awards programme, has opened for entries on the 1st April.

Architects from around the globe are invited to follow in the footsteps of last year’s World Building of the Year winner, Zaha Hadid Architects MAXXI, National Museum of XXI Century Arts, and submit entries to find the best examples of new world architecture.

The WAF Awards, one of the highlights of the global architectural calendar, are taking place for the fourth time in Barcelona this November.

Submissions can be made online from 1st April; deadline for entries is 30th June 2011.

The WAF Awards embrace a range of entrants, from leading global architectural firms to small practices (unknown outside their own country), competing as equals on a global stage. Shortlisted entrants present their projects live to international judging panels and delegates during the Festival, which takes place in Barcelona from 2nd- 4th November 2011, as they compete for a coveted WAF Award.

This year’s Super Jury, which decides on the World Building of the Year 2011, comprises Michael Sorkin, principal of Michael Sorkin Studio, New York; Ben van Berkel, Co-founder of UNStudio, Amsterdam; Jo Noero, Principal of Noero Wolff Architects, Cape Town; Odile Decq, Principal of ODBC, Paris; and Professor Kongjian Yu, Principal of Turenscape, Beijing, a double category winner in previous WAF awards.
