AIA International Region
The 2018 AIA International Region Conference is being held on Nov 2nd to 4th in Singapore. The theme for the year 2018 is Convergence: Crossroad in Singapore. Registration is open, and all members are invited to register for the event.
AIA IR 2018 Singapore Conference with the theme “CONVERGENCE- CROSSROAD IN SINGAPORE” will examine three threads of convergence over three days, namely “Tradition and Innovation”, “Resilience and Sustainability” and “Wellness and Place-making”. Each day will examine each thread led by keynote speaker, and a moderated panel session to conclude each daily subtheme. The aim is to offer insights to key issues, challenges, trends and exemplary projects, on both global and local levels. This conference promises an engaging discourse featuring best-of class practitioners, leading architects and planners, industry leaders, academics and thought leaders on conversations relevant to the state of the architectural profession. In addition, design and cultural tours are conceived to offer greater insights into award-winning innovative projects that are contemporary and culturally significant. Venue for conference is the National Design Center, a converted missionary school in an old part of the city. Venue for the Gala Dinner and Design Award is the National Gallery, an adaptive restoration to the colonial Parliament Building and Supreme Court, in the historic center of the nation.
