Singapore Institute of Architects (SIA) announces the launch of Archifest
08, to be held in Singapore in the month of October 2008. A month-long festival celebrating architecture and
the built environment, Archifest returns for a second year after the successful event held for the first time last
Look forward to a myriad of exciting events including Exhibitions, Forum, Architours and interesting Fringe
Events at the Archifest. Be inspired by the gallery of the year’s best architectural projects; learn from the
presentations by a line-up of world-renowned architects; get up-close with some iconic and very interesting
buildings on a guided architour. The festival is a public event packed with architectural-related activities and
happenings for all to participate in.
The theme “Man + Environment” provides a focus for Archifest 08, as the stage is set for us to re-examine the
relationship of Architecture with the Environment.
Organised by Singapore Institute of Architects (SIA), Archifest 08’s main events will be featured at the festival hub
at The Plaza, National Library, 100 Victoria Street. Archifest 08 is an initiative supported and co-funded under
the Architecture and Urban Design Excellence (A•UDE) Promotion Programme by the Urban Redevelopment
Authority (URA), and sponsored by Far East Organization, BlueScope Steel, Hunter Douglas and Johnson Suisse
Bathroom Solutions. For more information, please visit www.archifest.sg.
