ARCHIFEST 2017

Archifest is an annual public festival for Singapore to celebrate architecture and the built environment. It will build upon the pillars of the festival: Archi-Interfaces, Conference, Conversations, Archicraft and Architours. Held from 4 to 15 of October featuring a line-up of more than 50 events taking place at various locations island-wide over 2 weeks, the goal is to invite conversations and establish greater collaboration between various institutions and communities for an exciting festival.

This year’s theme-‘Building Agency'-emphasizes the facilitating and building up of agency and citizen participation through architecture. It foregrounds the agency of buildings as important materials and spaces of urban life and is about an empowerment of the people as active agents in the making of our built environment.
