Get ready for an exciting line-up of more than 100 programmes as part of Singapore Archifest’s first ever hybrid edition! Taking place over six weekends from 25 September to 31 October 2020, the annual festival organised by the Singapore Institute of Architects (SIA) will be rolling out varied programmes 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. Anchored by the theme Architecture Saving OUR World, the festival is offering up programmes and activities that cater to both the built community and general public, inviting all to discover the role of architecture and explore how it can address today’s most pressing issues such as climate change, food shortage and public health, even as humanity continues to battle against COVID-19.
The public can also look forward to a perennial favourite of the festival, the SIA-LES Archifest Pavilion, with this year’s winning design by ADDP Architects in collaboration with OWIU Design. Titled Reclaiming Connectivity, the virtual pavilion invites festival-goers to reflect upon humanity’s innate need for connection juxtaposed against the current reality of social distancing, through an interactive 3D virtual tour accessible on Singapore Archifest’s website.
When: 25 Sep - 31 Oct 2020,
