Since its conception in 2007, Singapore Archifest has been a platform for all walks of life to gather and reimagine the design of the city, its architecture and consequently, way of life. The annual festival continues to cultivate a vibrant design culture, through the myriad of activities where professionals and the public can collaborate in a delightful atmosphere. It is a key marker in the strive towards developing Singapore into a global design capital.
This year Singapore Archifest is taking place during an unprecedented time for humanity. As we navigate through the viscous state of the COVID-19 pandemic, the festival serves as a powerful reminder that our actions, or inactions, profoundly impacts all that is around us. The health crisis has heightened the intricacy and interdependence between mankind’s wellness and the environment’s condition, as well as the dire need for the synthesis of these ecosystems as we seek greater adaptability and resiliency.
