Fourteen New Zealand projects from 9 practices are included in the shortlist for the 2017 World Architecture Festival Awards, which runs 15–17 November at Arena Berlin, Germany. 

2017 saw a record number of international entries with architectural practices from 51 different nations and projects based across 68 countries.

According to a statement by WAF program director Paul Finch, “This year’s shortlist has a hugely diverse geographic range. The use of water has been striking and there is evidence of real interest in climate modifications using novel techniques”.

Architects of the shortlisted projects will be invited to present to the panel of jurors in Berlin. A winner will be selected from each category and the coveted 2017 World Building of the Year will be crowned from the completed building category winners. Conceptual projects will compete to be named Future Project of the Year. 

At the 2017 INSIDE World Festival of Interiors, the sister festival of WAF, Warren and Mahoney has made the shortlist in the Creative Re-Use category for their Mason Bros. building interior in Britomart.

The shortlisted New Zealand projects are:
