This year’s Archifest architecture festival in Singapore to run from 27 September to 13 October

Singapore’s annual Festival of Ideas for the City organised by the Singapore Institute of Architects (SIA) will run from 27 September to 13 October this year with the brand new theme of ‘Small is Beautiful’.

Archifest 2013 will use the city as a laboratory and frame Singapore as an urban ecosystem beyond singular architectural projects. It will explore and celebrate projects, design studios, communities and ideas that might be small by choice and circumstance, but are large in ambition and impact.

Festival highlights include the Archifest Pavilion design competition which aims to reinvent the experience of a public space in Singapore, providing a comfortable, unique and multi-sensorial experience of the city. This year’s winners are Singapore-based RSP Architects, Planners & Engineers with ‘House’.

There will also be a conference with Yoshiharu Tsukamoto from Tokyo’s Atelier Bow-Wow as keynote speaker after which the SIA Design Awards will be presented.
