Join our faculty, Carlos Banon and Calvin Chua, for WY-TO CONNECTS, a Satellite Program for Singapore Design Week. It is a series of short presentations by multidisciplinary experts from the wider architecture and design industry, as well as businesses that employ design as a strategic tool.

This year, the 4th edition aims at creating new avenues of discussion in co-curation with G8A Architecture & Urban Planning, who have an international presence in Singapore, Vietnam and Switzerland.

The professions of architect and designer don’t necessarily follow a conventional path. This year’s theme “The Other Side” tackles the multifaceted routes in successful architectural & design careers and how people can find creative balance in pursuit of parallel alternative paths. Architects, designers and their practices often find themselves engaged in the wider context of knowledge outside of their fields, and are often being confronted with opportunities to develop themselves in other disciplines, geographical contexts or with technologically innovative tools.

Practitioners from the Region will share their experience within the intimate setting of WY-TO studio in Chinatown. Yann from WY-TO will be moderating the talks and facilitate an interactive conversation.
