Three new sessions have been announced for the 2016 World Architecture Festival (WAF), held from November 16-18 in Berlin, Germany. Adding to the impressive list of speakers at the event will be Ben van Berkel, founder of UNStudio, who will lecture on ?Superliving - from exclusive to inclusive?; Carlos Zedillo of Infonavit discussing ?Architect as instigator?; and Qutub Mandviwala, MQA, who will present on ?Housing and cultural difference.?Said Ben van Berkel about the event: ?It is essential to understand that ?housing for everyone? is not simply a matter of providing homes for all, it is also a question of what the home of the future should be; how we can meet the demands of all future residents and provide housing that fulfils their varied and changing needs.?

This theme of this year?s festival is ?Housing For Everyone.? Inspired by a variety of influences, markedly the condition of displaced communities of political and disaster refugees, lectures will focus on ?the growing understanding of how demographics and global urbanization are forcing change; and the imperatives to create shelter at one end of the spectrum, and sufficiency for occupation and investment at the other.?In addition to the conferences, WAF also features an awards program including entries from 58 countries, with buildings by well-known firms such as Zaha Hadid Architects, BIG, Studio Gang and Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners.International architects, including David Chipperfield, Ole Scheeren, Louisa Hutton, and BIG's Kai-Uwe Bergmann, will also give live critique on shortlisted schemes, before the culminating session where one project is selected as World Building of the Year. Last year, the grand prize was awarded to The Interlace by Ole Scheeren.According to event organizers, the WAF is a "unique international forum for exchange, learning and network between architects, while celebrating the world?s building of the year." See the full list of speakers, here; and find more information on this year?s event, including the entire schedule of events, on the WAF website, here.ArchDaily readers can receive a 10 per cent discount on passes ? by visiting the website and using the WAF discount code: ARCHDWAFD16News via WAF.Peter Cook, Patrik Schumacher Lead List of Speakers at WAF 2016
