Boogertman + Partners’ New Cairo Capital City Stadium, a competition proposal, has been listed as a shortlist finalist in the Future Competition category of the World Architecture Festival 2019. The World Architecture Festival (WAF) is an annual festival and awards ceremony for the architecture industry.
At the festival this year 538 shortlisted projects from 70 countries will present their projects in a 10-minute session to a judging panel and compete for awards in 31 categories. One of these projects is awarded the World Building of the Year title. All the entries are published in the World Buildings Directory online database and each year the World Architecture Festival publishes a list of the winners of the awards. This year the live judging and presentations will be held in RAI Amsterdam, 4-6 December, and Alasdair Forsyth, associate director and team leader for this project, will be representing the Boogertman + Partners team.
Commenting on making the WAF shortlist, Forsyth said, “We are very excited to once again be engaging with the international architectural community at WAF. Boogertman and Partners are committed to finding contextually considered solutions to global building types on the African continent. The fact that we were able to pull this scheme together in record time (10 days) to a very tight proposed budget speaks to the depth of our in-house expertise. I am looking forward to debates with our peers over some delicious Dutch beers in Amsterdam in December.”
