INSTAGRAMMER Yafiq Yusman (@_yafiqyusman_) captures symmetrical shots of Singapore buildings, showcasing the country's architecture from a unique prespective.

For one day only, Yafiq will give a crash course in how best to take architecture photos. His "How to Take Kicka** Architectural Photos on IG" is one of the many free workshops and exhibitions that are part of this year's Archifest. 

Now in its 10th year, the annual architecture festival not only celebrates Singapore's urban environment but also sets the stage for a wider discussion about our city, spaces and life.  Many of the activities will be held at the Archifest Pavilion, designed by DP Architects. 

The Pavilion, which is worth a visit in itself, is built entirely of construction-site materials - safety netting suspended on a frame of steel scaffolding. 

The gigantic technicolour urban sculpture plays on the interaction of multiple primary colour layers that overlap to create a playful pavilion, offering a respite from the hectic city life right in the centre of the Central Business District. 

Archifest is organised by Singapore Institute of Architects and Singapore Institute of Landscape Architects. 

  • Archifest 2016 is on till Oct 9 from 9am to 7pm at Archifest Pavilion @ Raffles Place Park, above Raffles Place MRT Station. For a full list of activities, see www.archifest.sg
