The World Architecture Festival brings together over 2,500 of the world’s leading architects and presents live 411 shortlisted projects by newly discovered architects alongside some of the most respected names in architecture.

This year’s theme of WAF is “House for everyone.” This is prompted by a variety of influences, not least the situation of displaced communities, like war refugees and refugees from natural and man-made disasters. There’s a growing understanding of how demographics and global urbanization are forcing changes in the way we think about “housing”.

Wolf Prix will discuss “What’s changed? How we live now and how we will live tomorrow?”

How population movements, demographic shifts and lifestyle trends have informed how we live collectively and as individuals. How this has impacted on the function, design and servicing of dwellings today and how these factors will affect the housing, and life, of tomorrow.
