4 July 2014

A cyclone-proof house, an Australian plant archive, an underground maritime museum by BIG and OMA's colossal De Rotterdam skyscraper are among the projects shortlisted for this year's World Architecture Festival awards.

The World Architecture Festival (WAF) shortlist includes completed buildings and future projects from over 50 countries, with buildings by Zaha Hadid, Studio Gang and Foster + Partners as well as many projects by emerging practices, submitted across 30 categories.

Other shortlisted projects include Europe's largest public library by Mecanoo, a Buddhist temple in Singapore, and a hotel by Neri&Hu in a 3,000-year-old Chinese city.

Overall category winners will be announced during the festival, which takes place from 2-4 October at the Marina Bay Sands resort in Singapore. One project will also go on to win the World Building of the Year, decided by a super jury led by British architect Richard Rogers.
