WAF 2022 is going to take place from 30 November to 2 December 2022 in Lisbon.
Jean Mah, Ole Scheeren and Ana Pinto da Silva have joined the line-up of luminary speakers at World Architecture Festival 2022 in Lisbon, which runs from 30 November to 2 December. This year’s programme theme is ‘Together’.
In December 2022, it will be three years since the global community of architects and designers have been able to meet in person at WAF and INSIDE. This will be a year in which to consider how architecture is responding to the renewal of collective life post-pandemic and in the light of commitments to combatting climate change.
This will be an opportunity for speakers and panels to discuss a series of issues and conditions which relate to the collective use of architecture and public space in a variety of very different settings. What is changing as a result of health considerations? How are domestic life, workplace culture and social engagement operating in our new world? Talks and panel discussions will take place across two stages on all three days of the festival in Lisbon, Portugal.
Portuguese architecture speakers include Diogo Burnay and Cristina Verissimo, Founders at CVDB Arquitectos who will be discussing the 6th edition of Lisbon Architecture Triennale. They are joined on the main stage line-up by established international architects from across the world including Jean Mah, Principal, Health at Perkins&Will; Marc Koehler, Founder at Marc Koehler Architects (MKA); Alice Dietsch, Director, AL_A; Mario Cucinella, Founder, Mario Cucinella Architects – MCA; and Richard Francis- Jones, Design Director, fjmtstudio.
The speaking programme for World Architecture Festival will culminate with keynote speeches from Ole Scheeren on Wednesday 30th November and Reinier de Graaf on Thursday 1 st December; plus a live presentation from Ana Pinto da Silva on Friday 2nd December.
Alongside the talks, the programme sits WAF’s unique live-judged awards programme where all finalists present their projects live to the WAF delegates and the esteemed judging panels.
