For the last few months, Alliance Française organized 3 conferences in conjunction with our French Excellence programmes.

In October, we launched ARCHITECTURE, surrounding one of the founding father of modern architecture, Le Corbusier. Two conferences were organized, discussing his legacy and impact upon Singapore's urban landscape.

After ARCHITECTURE, we moved on to INTERACT, as presented for Lille Métropole 2020, World Capital of Design. A part of the exhibition, 4 designers, from Singapore and France, convene in the Alliance Française's theatre to address the challenge of Contemporary Design.
