Be inspired by ideas for the future

Hollywood would provoke us with imagined future cities. Would the future city be a dystopic one as these Hollywood films portray or will they be optimistic. What kind of cities would artificial intelligence bring us? Would your city include towers that can exchange carbon dioxide for oxygen? What is your narrative concerning climate change?

The KLAF 2022: Future City Ideas Competition will showcase winning ideas in visions of the future city presented by professional and graduate architects.

Students Today, Architects by Tomorrow!

ARCHITALENT was first held in 2017 on a national level. For the first time this year, this event will be hosting architecture students from 9 ASEAN nations (Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Myanmar, Vietnam, Singapore, Brunei, Laos and Indonesia) to compete in the thrilling ARCHITALENT competition.

Where ARCHITALENT continues to encourage creation, audacity and the capacity to imagine visions of anticipations of a world to come, this platform allows students to showcase their best pitch for a project during the event.

Students will present before a panel of judges their ideas and share solutions with the theme FUTURE CITY with the goal of encouraging innovative architectural and urban ideas in resolving current and future issues.
