WHY ARCHITECT? FORUM: All of what you have always wanted to know but never dared to ask!


In conjunction with this year’s Archifest festival, the Small and Medium Architectural Practices Committee (SMAP) are presenting another exciting session of the ‘Why Architect? Forum 2020’. All of what people have always wanted to know but never dared to ask!

This forum is an excellent platform for anyone interested in what architects do as a profession. Open to the public, the forum attracts people from all walks of life - from fellow practitioners to secondary and tertiary student and architecture enthusiasts.

Organised with a panel of professionals ranging from the Architect who runs her/his own practice, to the relevant built environment specialists there will be an enlightening sharing of the role of Architects in the creation of the built structures in which we live, work and play. What goes on in the Architect’s mind during the whole process? Behind-the-scene stories and secrets will be revealed!

This year’s Archifest theme is ‘Architecture Saving Our World’. The ‘Why Architect? Forum’ hopes to contribute to this bold dialogue by bringing to the public an understanding and appreciation of the profession, as well as our commitment to the Planet and Humanity.

Why Architect? organising team are Yann Follain (WY-TO), Wu Huei Siang (WASAA Architects & Associates) and Casey Chua (ADX Architects Pte Ltd)
