Singapore Archifest 2020
|Start Date||September 25, 2020|
|End Date||October 31, 2020|
The annual festival organised by the Singapore Institute of Architects (SIA) to celebrate architecture and the built environment, returns this year. Themed “Architecture Saving OUR World”, this year’s festival will spotlight new ideas and responsible designs that benefit our ecology and humanity, through a series of online forums, virtual exhibitions, hybrid workshops, and decentralised island-wide pop-up activities.
This year’s theme is not about grand architecture, but about new ideas and responsible designs that benefit our climate, public health, social equity and cultural continuity. Some of these have yet to make their way into mainstream architecture, but there is no lack of the spirit of ‘creative activism’ within the profession, creating concepts and testing postulations.
