Savage + Dodd in collaboration with Urban Works win the WAFX Power and Justice Award at the World Architecture Festival 2018.
The WAFX Prize (sponsored by Greencoat) is awarded to 10 future projects that identify key challenges that architects will need to address in the coming years and was created as part of the World Architecture Festival’s 10th anniversary celebrations in 2017 (WAF 10 Manifesto). Winning future projects which address the Manifesto issues are entered for the prize. Key challenges span diverse topic areas, including climate, energy and carbon, water, ageing and health, re-use, smart cities, building technology, cultural identity, ethics, power and justice. The WAFX judges were impressed by the diversity of innovative approaches by architects and designers across the globe, which varied from innovative solar panel fields in The Netherlands, to urban green corridors in Bangkok, eco farms in rural Vietnam and river parks in Colombia.
