All of our first nine sessions of architecture walking tours were sold out. Please visit www.archiwalks.com or select one of these upcoming tours (held as part of Archifest 2014) that still have spaces: 27 Sep | 28 Sep | 5 Oct | 6 Oct
The "Eat Your Architecture!" ArchiWalk starts off with a hands-on walking tour of the art and architecture of Kampong Glam, a neighbourhood that is steeped in heritage, arts and culture. You'll examine and chat as part of a group of fifteen about the history, stories and techniques behind the art you'll see against the walls. We'll be looking at a mosque and shophouses repurposed as an office, a hotel and an arts centre.
The experience then proceeds with a 3-course dinner at A for Arbite, a bistro that is inspired by Europe but rooted in South East Asia. Using honest ingredients inspired by the walk, Chef Marc Wee will serve up a starter, a main course and a dessert that continues the conversations. Soft drink / iced tea included.
Held in a neighbourhood that is designated for conservation yet the centre of street art in Singapore, rich in religious and cultural heritage but pushing the boundaries in retail and the arts, the "Eat Your Architecture" walk hopes to inspire fresh perspectives and lively dialogue.
