We are proud to announce that Miami Design District has been shortlisted as a Finalist at the 2018 World Architecture Festival. Now in its 11th edition, the World Architecture Festival, which will celebrate the 2018 awards program, has released their shortlist. Receiving more entries than ever before with a total of 1,000 submissions, the selected projects represent a vast international collection of outstanding work across 81 countries. Among this year’s highlights are a research centre in Riyadh, a village lounge in rural China and a mosque without a minaret in Iran. Judges also noted the particular strength of the ‘Old and New’ category this year, with plenty of innovative ideas and creative re-use of old structures, including Thomas Heatherwick’s outstanding conversion of a disused grain silo in South Africa for use as a contemporary art gallery.
