Archifest 2018 Pavilion

Physically embodying the spirit of the festival, the Archifest Pavilion functions as the main base of operations where the various events start from or run within the space. It is a place where ideas can be discussed, shared and learnt during the festival.

Opening up as a competition to architects, the Archifest Pavilion is to be an architectural experiment to explore different ideas to redefine and innovate the spatial experience of a public space within Singapore’s context.

The Archifest Pavilion is envisioned to be the physical manifestation of the spirit of Archifest this year. It is imagined to be a temporary, outdoor recreational venue which reinvents our experience of a public space in Singapore, providing a comfortable, unique and multisensorial experience of the city to be enjoyed by everyone.
