Archifest (Singapore Architectural Festival) began in 2007 as an annual festival for the city to celebrate architecture and the built environment. It is a platform for everyone to discuss, debate and dream about the possibilities surrounding architecture and our city. This festival celebrates the importance of architecture in place-making. A city’s built, spatial environment coheres identity amidst the flux of global cities and captures the shared imagination of its people, even as Singaporeans collectively shape the making of the city towards the future.
Organised by the Singapore Institute of Architects (SIA), Archifest advocates for vibrancy in local design culture by creating opportunities for the public and architectural professionals to interact. The exciting program line-up consisting of architours, talks, film screenings and workshops have been designed to stimulate curiosity and nurture a design-conscious society through engaging conversations.
