These Are The 33 Most Innovative And Stunning Buildings Created This Year 2014.
The World Architecture Festival wrapped up its 2014 contest earlier this month, bestowing awards upon 33 buildings that are making innovative design a priority across the globe. From a community library in China that doubles as a playground to a Danish Maritime Museum to a hyper modern church in Spain, the seventh annual WAF winners are as diverse as there are stunning.
What started as a 400-project short list spanning 50 countries earlier this year, was whittled down to less than a few dozen designs across 27 different categories. In the wake of the massive competition, which took place in Singapore, we are profiling each and every building that received commendation. Behold: A comprehensive look at the year's best architecture -- and a glimpse into the future of design, whether it includes water-balanced and energy efficient imaginings, or buildings known as "bespoke bookends" and "spirals of knowledge."
