World Architecture Festival 2016 will take place on the 16 - 18 November in Berlin Germany.

Robert Konieczny + KWK Promes’ National Museum in Szczecin - Dialogue Centre Przełomy has been named the World Building of the Year 2016 as the World Architecture Festival (WAF) in Berlin comes to a close. The project consists of an atmospheric underground museum below an expansive, undulating public plaza, adjacent to Barozzi Veiga’s Mies van der Rohe Award-winning Philharmonic Hall Szczecin.

The judges, chaired by Sir David Chipperfield, gave the following commendations:

“This project enriches the city and the life of the city. It addresses a site with three histories, pre-World War II, wartime destruction, and post-war development, which left a significant gap in the middle of the city.

“This is a piece of topography as well as a museum. To go underground is to explore the memory and archaeology of the city, while above ground the public face of the building, including its undulating roof, and be interpreted and used in a variety of ways.

“This is a design which addresses the past in an optimistic, poetic and imaginative way.”

The World Architecture Festival is where the world architecture community meets to celebrate learn, exchange and be inspired. It is the only architecture event where keynote talks from the industry’s most influential figures sit alongside live crit presentations and judging of over 350 award finalists, global networking, a 400 project strong gallery and an international product exhibition.
