University of Westminster hosts World Architecture Festival at Ambika P3

Architecture and Interiors 26 June 2015

As part of the London Festival of Architecture, the World Architecture Festival (WAF) is taking place from 24–27 June 2015 at the University of Westminster.

Taking place at AMBIKA P3, at the University of Westminster’s Marylebone campus, 390 of the best architectural projects in the world are exhibited. Visitors are greeted by a dramatic seven metre high installation, and each day has its own theme, and a selection of 2015 WAF award finalists from the UK will give preview presentations of their shortlisted projects.

A free international talks programme is taking place as part of WAF, looking at new architecture, issues affecting cities and communities, and how architecture and design can improve the environment.

Speakers include Populous, Wilkinson Eyre, AHMM, Fosters + Partners, Rafael Vinoly, Ken Shuttleworth, Pringle Brandon Perkins+Will, Will Alsop and more.

The World Architecture Festival is free to attend and open to all ages. The exhibition is open to all until 8pm on Friday and 6pm on Saturday.

Welcoming families, the final day of the festival will be family day – in which LEGO will be joining to host a LEGO Architecture competition.

Register to attend for free on the official WAF website.
