WY-TO Connects brings together architects, designers, thinkers and innovators intimately concerned with contemporary local, regional and global issues. The inaugural series was launched at the 2017 Singapore Design Week, and its initial focus on architecture and design has evolved to include a diverse range of pressing urban, social and cultural themes. The second edition at ARCHIFEST 2017 takes on an exciting, inclusive curation that introduces pertinent topics to both the public and industry. Find out how the evolution of workspace design affects productivity, mobility and sociability; how innovative forms of display are changing the retail landscape; how new definitions of classrooms are redefining the way we educate children, and the urban, social, economic and mobility consequences that Singapore’s new transportation hubs and modes will create. From the established and highly influential large practices, to the compact and inventive studios, understand how strategic design is the catalyst for social change at WY-TO Connects.
