Archifest
The Craft Of Building A City

Throughout the ages, architecture has always been preoccupied with the bespoke. Working alongside artisans, architects develop deep understandings of materiality and technique to reflect the genius loci of a place. With the theme Craft, this year marks the 13th Archifest (Singapore Architectural Festival) which began in 2007 as an annual festival for the city to celebrate architecture and the built environment. Organised by the Singapore Institute of Architects (SIA), Archifest is a platform for people from all walks of life to discuss, debate and dream about possibilities surrounding architecture, our city and the built environment at large. 

Through the series of master lectures, panel discussions, exhibitions, tours and workshops, Archifest aims to engage the fraternity, academics, agencies and the public alike in a richer understanding of craft. In understanding Craft, the festival seeks to explore its multi-faceted manifestations through three different allegories, Objects, Time and Digital, each distinctive in its influence on the evolution of Craft.

The festival promotes the importance of sustainable architecture and urban design in creating a vibrant and delightful atmosphere and wishes to honour and recognize those among us that have dedicated a lifetime to perfecting their craft of architecture. Craft has always been an intrinsic part of architecture since time immemorial. Celebrate Craft because in the act of making, one discovers a sense of joy and wonder - elements vital to being human.

Singapore's grandest architecture festival returns with a new theme, Craft.

September 27 - October 9, 2019.
