World Architecture Festival has teamed up with the organisers of the Art and Work Awards to introduce a new award aimed at encouraging and celebrating the relationship between art and architecture.

Focus on transformations
The 2010 World Architecture Festival thematic exhibition will be based on the theme of 'Transformations'. The 2010 theme will relate to the way in which the built environment can be transformed by a combination of client commitment, architectural imagination, technological development and professional teamwork.
The exhibition theme will feed into the WAF seminar programme and keynote addresses from leading contemporary architects.
