The Archifest (Singapore Architecture Festival) is an annual festival for the city to celebrate architecture and the built environment. Archifest is a platform for all walks of life to discuss, debate and deliberate architectural issues. Participants will find themselves engaging in uninhibited dialogue, creative collaborations and a constant exchange of ideas.
The main aim of the festival is to provide a platform to breed a vibrant design culture, and consequently a design conscious society, by encouraging and guiding the general public and design professionals of all fields to interact in a fun and free atmosphere.

Design studios in architecture schools function as incubators for design solutions which respond to the issues of our built environment. Architecture students are confronted with crucial and relevant topics such as social, housing, environmental and urban issues in their course of studies and attempt to resolve them through innovative design solutions generated in the vigorous studio discussions.
City-Studio welcomes the public to have an insight into the process which produce architectural projects and discover how thoughtful design can solve future issues. The intellectual conversations and lively discussions which constitute the studio, will be relocated into the heart of the city.
