Organised by the Singapore Institute of Architects (SIA), the 15th edition of Archifest will be making a comeback, as a bigger, better and more inclusive celebration of great design - appealing both to architecture enthusiasts, and to the general public.
From kayaking along the rich mangrove ecosystems of Sembawang’s shorelines to experiencing exciting midnight heritage tours in Geylang, the festival is designed for all ages, abilities and interest groups.
Taking place from 1 to 31 October 2021, Archifest 2021 (AF21) is centred around the premise that Architecture is everywhere. This year’s theme - Design Evidence - an inquisitive attitude to discovering the value of design in every aspect of the world.

AF21's programmes are as diverse as AF21’s audience. AF21 will look at the world through five key “lenses” such as "Arts and Culture", "Community and Inclusivity", "Environment and Sustainability", "History and Heritage", as well as "Technology and Methods".
AF21’s take on a hybrid festival transcends physical activations and installations, into a seamless online experience for the digital natives. There’s a wide range of stimulating virtual events, from art exhibitions and film premieres to upbeat forums on hot topics like urban self-sufficiency, alternative paths in architecture and even feng shui!
