Who We Are

Monday, January 02, 2006 Posted by Daniel Lee
About ReallyArchitecture

ReallyArchitecture (re:act) is a Singapore-registered society, established in 2006 by a group of visionary architecture enthusiasts who are interested in promoting architecture with a social conscience. We believe that architects have to stay relevant to the society by taking on additional roles and new approaches to make a positive impact in the communities. Through promoting interdisciplinary exploration by collaborating closely with government bodies, the community, educational institutions and various professions, we endeavour to raise public awareness about place, identity and creativity, which would in turn instil an appreciation toward good, responsive, and relevant architectural designs.

The organisation passionately believes in pushing boundaries and encouraging exploratory thinking. It hopes to achieve these objectives through activities like exhibitions, workshops, conferences, talks, films, publications, academic papers and actual built projects. It recently organised the Challenge for the Urban and Built Environment (CUBE), an urban planning and design competition for pre-university students initiated by the Architecture and Urban Design Excellence (A.UDE) Programme, URA as part of their efforts to reach out to the community. It was also one of the three teams commissioned to design and curate the Singapore pavilion, SUPERGARDEN, at the Venice Architecture Biennale in 2008. Other past projects include Seletar Film Project (2006), Small Eyes, Big Picture Photo-Travelogue Exhibition (2005), Asian Research Film (2005), Akha Way Expedition + Exhibition (2004-05).
