Archifest – a Festival of Ideas for the City – returns for its eighth year with a new theme, ‘CROWD’, that seeks to open up the discussion to investigate how the notion of Crowd operates and contributes to architecture and urbanism.
Organised by the Singapore Institute of Architects (SIA), Archifest 2014 will present architecture in a relevant, and engaging way, strengthening the affinity between architecture and people, through a line-up of exhibitions, activities and speakers that architects, students and the public can look forward to.
The two week-long festival, happening at Marina Bay Sands Event Plaza, Expo & Convention Center starts from 26 September to 11 October 2014, will explore the idea of ‘CROWD’ in its different meanings and contexts, specifically in the categories of Collective Intelligence and Community Capital. Some of the key highlights include a pop-up café in collaboration with Toby’s Estate; a Conference headlining international and local speakers; a series of installations, workshops, tours and sharing sessions showcasing architecture projects; and other fringe events.
Programme lineup will be updated soon, do head on over to the website and facebook page for more information.
