Archifest X The Design Society Sessions 09 and 10


As our sense of identity and belonging in Singapore continues to grow, these desires have fueled new forms of creative output from the current generation. Architects, storytellers and entrepreneurs are increasingly coming together with visual communicators, to create unique experiences and compelling identities for the times. More and more, we are seeing the blurring of the disciplines and spirit of collaboration taking root. Come explore with us the vast creative potential when the worlds of 2D and 3D merge. Over two nights of Sessions, The Design Society invites four creative entities to share their stories of those magical moments when the visual and spatial spheres connect.
