Returning for its eighth year, Singapore's annual premiere festival Archifest explores the concept of CROWD, and how it interacts with and becomes an integral aspect of architecture and urbanism. Hailed as a Festival of Ideas for the City, Archifest is a two week long gala focusing this year on the context of Collective Intelligence and Community Capital, and the intricate complexities and interconnectivity between both. The theme is based on the belief that it is "the human aspect of architecture that encourages, facilitates, and enhances the human quality to hold influence and create energy to the makeup of our city."
Intended to provoke a city-wide and international dialogue, this year's Archifest entices with several notable highlights. The Archifest Pavilion, Urban Lab, city-wide Architours, collaborative Fringe events, and ArchXpo 2014 are all carefully designed to attract and benefit students, architects, professionals, and the general public alike. Organized by Singapore Institute of Architects (SIA) and curated and produced by PLUS Collaboratives, the entire festival will be hosted at the Marina Bay Sands Event Plaza.
