Innovative Architecture project covering earlier this year was reduced to a few dozen drawings in 27 different categories. In the wake of the massive competition that took place in Singapore, we are the profile of every building that has received praise. Here is an overview of the best Innovative Architecture of the year – and a look into the future of design, it includes balanced water and energy efficient imaginations or buildings, known as “designer bookends” and “spiral of knowledge.
The World Architecture Festival ended its battle earlier this month, granting rewards of 33 buildings that make the innovative design a priority worldwide. In a community library in China, which is located on a Danish sea museum in a hyper modern church in Spain, the seventh annual winners of the WAF are as diverse as a playground serving as there are amazing.
Please tell us your opinion about the projects in the comments. Spoiler: If you are in the United States, and you hope that the architectural wonders are in store for your country, you will be disappointed. While countries like Vietnam, Australia and the UK are numerous appearances on this list, you will not find any single American model … or, for that matter, some drawings in Africa or America South (except Brazil). Here is to the next year, the people.
