World Festival of Interiors: Inside 2021, supported by Miele, will now take place on the 1-3 December in Lisbon. 

We want to ensure WAF and Inside offer a safe and enjoyable experience for all our attendees. With the pandemic situation looking difficult in Europe over the coming weeks we believe our previous dates of 23-25 June may be too soon to guarantee this. However, we feel confident that mass vaccination programmes across the world will have proved effective by the autumn, so have decided on the new dates in that light. Read the full announcement.

World Festival of Interiors takes place alongside the World Architecture Festival and is the globes largest festival and live awards competition dedicated to design and architecture. It is where the design community meets to share expertise and learn from each other. It is the only design awards where you get to pitch your project to a panel of expert judges, live at the festival.

This was a real eye opener and a brilliant event in that everything happening around the world is brought to a single event. I was really impressed with the topics and speakers especially on how architecture see's the future of the world and the global issues that are being addressed.

Winning the award is a great encouragement for what we have done, for refreshing ourselves, our architecture. After WAF, we have been well-known from around the world and it gives us chances to meet and talk to different people, this is very important to us, especially when we are always searching for doing something new.

Sanjay Puri, Founder, Sanjay Puri Architects

WAF is a wonderful mix of theory and the reality of everyday practice in the presentations, the jury-comments, the lectures, the debates and exhibitions. The excursions, parties and joined dinner offer excellent opportunities to network. WAF is the most inclusive cross-border event on the architectural horizon!
