The annual Archifest event will run again this year in Singapore with a thought-provoking theme – ‘What Future?’
Known as a festival that celebrates the urban environment, the 2015 edition will run between September 26 and October 10 and will include a variety of exhibitions, installations, screenings and more. The festival village will run out of the newly minted Singapore Institute of Architects (SIA) building, located on Neil Rd in the heart of the city. In its 9th year, the festival has chosen the theme ‘What Future?’ as they urge Singaporeans to look ahead and imagine the possibilities for the area in light of the region’s 50th year of independence.
Archifest will run for two weeks, and during that time a range of events will be offered; specially curated Architours will allow access to some of Singapore’s hidden, architectural gems while a forum titled Why Architect? will share insights on how to realise the creation of a dream home. A pop-up design studio, conferences, talks and exhibitions from industry professionals will also feature during the festival.
