Singapore Archifest Virtual Exhibition
Running from 25 September to 31 October 2020, The Singapore Archifest Exhibition this year celebrates diverse bodies of works that strive to make a difference in our lives and the world around us. Altogether 40 organisations are shortlisted for this virtual exhibition. They include architecture firms, academic studios, research think tanks, non-profit organisations, social enterprises, design creatives, and urban farms. As the issues we now face are multi-faceted, it certainly takes more than one hand to clap - many hands indeed! Therefore, by bringing together these diverse yet closely-related professions, this exhibition is a call to expand the dialogue beyond the conventional boundary of architecture. Some exhibits have accompanying physical pop-ups located at various decentralised sites; others will also be presented and discussed in several online forums during the festival.
This year's themes
Novel approaches in architectural typologies, use of materials, fabrication techniques that respond to emerging societal, environmental and public health needs.
British High Commission
