The 2017 World Architecture Festival (WAF) Awards shortlist has been announced.

Across 30 categories, the awards are divided into broader building, landscape and future project sections. Of the 43 Australian shortlist entires, 30 appear in the building category, with two shortisted landscape project and the remainder appearing in the future category.

Australian practices were particularly sucessful in the house and health categories, with Australian projects comprising six out of 17 houses and three out of 10 healthcare facilities on the shortlist.

The 2017 shortlist builds on the success of Australian projects in last year’s awards, where Hayball’s proposal for South Melbourne Primary School was named Future Project of the Year.

Finalists will be invited to present their projects to WAF Awards juries at the World Architecture Festival in Berlin from 15 to 17 November.

The festival, hosted at Arena Berlin in the German capital, includes a seminar and events program, this year themed around “performance,” that will feature visits to Berlin’s most notable performance venues, including Hans Scharoun’s Berlin Philharmonie (1963), Gerhard Spangenberg’s Radialsystem V pumping station conversion and Frank Gehry’s Pierre Goulez Hall (2017).
