World Architecture Festival (WAF) is a prestigious annual international event in the field of architecture to honor architectural works of excellence, where talented architects from all over the world come together to celebrate architectural achievements around the world. It is compared to the "Oscar" of the world architecture industry. This year's WAF will be held in early December in Lisbon, Portugal, with works from 62 countries spread throughout 20 categories.

The Veil - White Palace, Pham Van Dong has surpassed thousands of other design firms to become Vietnam's only project nominated in the category of Display: Completed Buildings at WAF 2021.

Talking about this honor, the head of the design team, architect Nghiem Dinh Toan shared: "Being on the shortlist of WAF is really a great pleasure for us. Although it is not a huge result, it is an important milestone marking the development of me+ architect as well as me personally.”

“This year, due to the complicated development of the epidemic, although it was quite difficult to get a visa, we still cannot fly to Lisbon (Portugal) in the coming days to give a live presentation on 'The Veil - White Palace International Convention Center' in front of the judges," he also added.

Nghiem Dinh Toan explains, "Instead, all activities will be done online and we are looking forward to talking more about the design concept and the values ​​that me+ architects and investors have put into this project. Hopefully, The Veil would become an interesting highlight for Vietnamese architecture at this year's WAF competition."

Let's take a look at the project design.

World Architecture Festival (WAF), the world's largest annual international architectural exhibition, was initially set to take place in Lisbon this year. The 2021 WAF digital event will consist of three days of live conference programs, awards, and fringe events, with talks by leading global architectural thinkers and industry personalities, live-streamed exclusively to international festival delegates.

In response to continuing COVID-19 travel restrictions, World Architecture Festival (WAF) is to migrate its 2021 event in December to a live and interactive digital format, along with sister event INSIDE World Festival of Interiors.

WAF includes the biggest international architectural awards program in the world, dedicated to celebrating excellence via presentations to an audience of high-profile delegates and international juries. On-line category judging will form a cornerstone of the 2021 WAF digital edition, with finalists for ‘World Building of the Year’, ‘Future Project of the Year’, ‘Interior of the Year’ and ‘Landscape of the Year’ judged live and streamed to festival delegates across the world.

Confirmed judges on this year’s Super Jury include: Jeanne Gang, Founding principal and partner, Studio Gang; Abdelkader Damani, Artistic Director, Frac Centre-Val de Loire | Biennale d'Architecture d'Orléans; Kim Herforth Nielsen, Co-Founder & Principal, 3XN Architects and Christina Seilern, Principal, Studio Seilern.

With 18 digital crit rooms and 18 trios of international judges, the WAF 2021 digital event stands to offer the widest access to the largest amount of content in the history of the festival, which launched in Barcelona in 2008. This year’s digital event will generate 40 days of exclusive programming which will be available to delegates on-demand up to 90 days after the event.

The excitement around bringing WAF to Portugal’s capital city remains, and the WAF 2022 edition is confirmed to take place in Lisbon from 30 November to 2 December at the FIL exhibition center. Harnessing opportunities opened up by this year’s event, the 2022 festival will include integrated digital elements to form a hybrid festival format, fully attuned to digital and in-person delegates.
