Archifest
Architecture Saving OUR World

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. This year marks the 14th Archifest (Singapore Architectural Festival) which began in 2007 as an annual festival for the city to celebrate architecture and the built environment. Organized 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. 

Taking place over six weekends from September 25 to October 31, 2020, Archifest will be rolling out varied programs that range from pop-up experiences that reimagine the way we live, to virtual exhibitions, forums, film screenings, workshops and an immersive virtual Pavilion that pushes the frontier of sustainable design − all to shine the spotlight on the impact and positive change that architecture can have in our current climate. 

This year’s Singapore Archifest Exhibition celebrates diverse bodies of works that strive to make a difference in our lives and the world around us. A total of 40 organizations were shortlisted for the virtual exhibition, including architecture firms, academic studios, research think tanks, non-profit organizations, social enterprises, design creatives, and urban farms. Bringing together these diverse yet closely-related professions, this year’s exhibition is a call to expand the dialogue beyond the conventional boundary of architecture, in order to tackle the multi-faceted issues that humanity faces.

With a selection of more than 10 virtual forums that delve into globally pressing topics, the series gathers Singapore, South-East Asia, and international expert panelists from diverse architecture and design backgrounds to join in conversations on the different ways responsible design can benefit the community and ecosystem.
