Singapore Archifest Urban Installations


The Pavilion is traditionally the centrepiece of Archifest. This year, in the spirit of adaptability that follows imaginations of an “Interim” future, Archifest has invited a number of local and regional designers to create urban installations all around the Kampong Gelam festival site.

The shift from one singular statement piece to multiple, more accessible smaller objects dispersed around the festival site, aims to embody the “Interim City”. This produces a multitude of time-based, incremental, temporary urban interventions – all of which have the potential to impress upon the physical landscape of the city beyond their footprints and lifetimes.

The Installations will be located at: Festival House, Pondok Jawa & Sultan Gate Open Space, Coach Lots, Grass Patch in front of Jalan Kledek Substation, and The Quadrant.
