The 3rd World Architecture Festival is to be held in November, once again in Barcelona. Lovely city, but shouldn’t a “world” event move around a little, like Miss World does (or did?). Maybe its English backers are just too keen on the quick trip to sunny Spain, though the event seems to shift further and further into winter with every year.
WAF is looking for speakers. If you consider yourself a “leading figure” (go on), then you can submit your interest at this page

If you’d like to enter you’d best start saving as the fees start at €545. If you’re just visiting, the early bird price is €445, a good €135 cheaper than it was two years ago when I went. That reminds me, Emap still owe me €580 from that trip. Never got so much as an email explaining… but never mind… If you’re idling about Europe at that time of year, it’s definitely worth popping in. If for nothing else than to watch the jury sessions, in which juries who are strangers to one another attempt to compare international entries with completely different sets of priorities. The questions and answers are illluminating.
Can’t find a review of 2009 anywhere..
