Founded in 2006, World Architecture Community (worldarchitecture.org) provides a unique environment for architects, architecture students and academics around the globe to meet, share and compete.
Thousands of architects, architecture offices, students and academics are members of our portal where they can create their profile pages and upload their projects and buildings for general consumption. As a truly global platform, World Architecture Community is the place where international contemporary architecture is expressed from all horizons while providing an equal opportunity to those countries generally less covered by international media.
With close to 400,000 twitter followers, World Architecture Community (@WACommunity) is also very actively followed on social media. Architecture news articles published on World Architecture Community were viewed over 80 million times and projects posted by its members were viewed over 40 million times in total, since 2008.
Finally, the now famous WA Awards competition recognizes the best projects and buildings in 3 different categories: Designed, Realized and Student. Up-to 10+5+X projects are awarded every cycle since over 20 cycles, 3 times a year in a totally democratic selection, made by a combination of the votes of honorary members and previous cycle winners (10), as well as the ratings of our community members (5).
Registration as an Associate and Academic member is totally free, while Professional members get extra features and benefits at an affordable annual subscription fee.
