The Arena Berlin : Venue for World Architecture Festival 2016

World Architecture Festival 2016 : WAF 2016 will be taking place in a venue that typifies the post-industrial identity synonymous with the city known as much for its reinvention of the old as it is with the creation of contemporary architecture.

The Arena is located on the River Spree at the edge of the recently energised Treptow area. Built in 1927, the historic venue was designed by architect Franz Ahrens as a bus hall for Berlin's public transport system. At the time, it was Europe's largest free-standing hall.

During the Festival the Arena will be the backdrop for three days off industry shaping live crits, seminars, keynote talks, charrettes and exhibits. Key figures in the Berlin architecture community will be heading up the festival’s line-up of speakers and judges.

‘After four happy years in Singapore we are delighted to be moving to Berlin for 2016. This is a city with an extraordinary history, and one which has been a breeding ground for architectural ideas, historical and contemporary. We look forward to staging our first Festival in Europe since 2011, and to welcoming architects from across the world to our ninth edition.’
Paul Finch, WAF Programme Director
