Archifest 2019

This year’s Archifest will be focused  on the theme of Craft, exploring  the materiality and techniques that  architects developed while working  alongside artisans.

The theme will  also look beyond the bespoke into  the contemporary maker culture – a  technology-based extension of DIY  culture that intersects with hacker  culture and revels in the creation of  new devices as well as tinkering with  existing ones.

Alan Tay, one of the founding partners of Formwerkz, has been confirmed  as the Festival Director for Archifest  2019.

Selected by URA as one of  the ’20 Under 45’ rising architects  in 2009, Alan also serves as adjunct  assistant professor at the School of  Architecture, NUS.

He believes in the  transformative power of Architecture  in effecting change and making the  world a better place.

Expect the familiar master lectures, panel discussions, exhibitions,  tours and workshops that has  been well-received over the years.  More details of the festival will be  released at a later stage.
