Back for the second year in Singapore, the world’s largest global festival and live awards program dedicated to celebrating and sharing architecture excellence takes place October 2nd - 4th. With over 65 countries participating, The World Architecture Festival and its interiors sister event, the INSIDE Festival, will feature project presentations, industry shaping speakers and many other social experiences for the design community. The 3-day festival will take place at the renowned Marina Bay Sands and bring together over 1,750 architects and designers.

Each year, Eight Inc. has contributed to the mix of projects showcased and is part of the informative program organized to create inspiration and growth in design.

After re-designing a 4,300 square foot location in New York for Citi Private Bank clients to meet and collaborate, Eight Inc. was shortlisted this year for an INSIDE award in the offices category. Along with 57 other presentations for the INSIDE Festival, Senior Designer, Rob Mathewson will present the Citi Private Bank design and concept.

Eight Inc. previously won for the Future Projects education category for the Malama Learning Center Hawaii in 2009 and was shortlisted for the Oslo National Art Museum in 2010 at the World Architecture Festival in Barcelona.

CEO and Founder of Eight Inc., Tim Kobe, will be speaking at both the pre-festival PechaKucha and the INSIDE festival. PechaKucha, held in cities across the world, helps designers meet, network and show their work publicly.  At the INSIDE Festival, Tim will be part of a panel discussion on “Brands and Design – The New Patrons of Creativity” and covering such topics as the role and dynamic of the brand design relationship, creating emotional and behavioral impact and the social, commercial and creative benefits of brand design.  Tim will also be one of 95 international judges on the panel at the World Architecture Festival.
