Organised by the Singapore Institute of Architects (SIA), Archifest 2014 will present architecture in a relevant, and engaging way, strengthening the affinity between architecture and people, through a line-up of exhibitions, activities and speakers that architects, students and the public can look forward to.

Archifest 2013, attended by more than 30,000 visitors, presented the theme ‘Small is Beautiful’ which showcased communities, businesses and ideas that may be small by choice and circumstance, but are large in ambition and impact.

With the six key pillars of this year, namely Archifest Pavilion, Urban Lab, Archifest Conference, Architours, Fringe and Archxpo, Archifest 2014 aims to continue bringing great minds and people together to share ideas, collaborate and form collectives to create even better places for the public.
