Singapore Archifest Exhibition


The Archifest Exhibition is an annual staple of the Festival that showcases new industry-shaping projects from Singapore and the region. This year, the exhibition held at the Festival House presents visitors with statements, doubts, and provocations surrounding the festival theme “Interim: Acts of Adaptation”.

The exhibition explores how architecture’s relationship with time and change shapes our buildings, cities, and environments. It seeks to provoke reflection on the possible modes of architectural action that appear when we read our city as a dynamic testbed for change.

Highlights of the AF exhibition include:
Interim Atlas, Interim Cinema, and Building Building.
