The 2018 World Architecture Festival in Amsterdam has drawn to a close, naming a slate of overall winners. First held in Barcelona in 2008, the three-day event celebrates projects around the world while raising important issues in the profession. This year’s theme touched on architectural identity. A jury of over 130 judges—including David Adjaye of Adjaye Associates, Jeanne Gang of Studio Gang, and Rem Koolhaas of OMA—reviewed more than 500 projects from 57 countries, before a jury of five narrowed the list down to 12 overall winners. The Building of the Year award—the festival’s highest honor—went to Singapore-based WOHA Architects for its work on Kampung Admiralty, a mixed-use retirement village in the firm’s home country, marking the third time the prize has gone to a project from Singapore. London firm WilkinsonEyre previously won the award in 2012 for the Cooled Conservatories at Gardens by the Bay, while OMA and Buro Ole Scheeren were recognized in 2015 for their collaboration on the residential complex The Interlace.
