IFLA World Congress 2018

Organised by the International Federation of Landscape Architects (IFLA) and Singapore Institute of Landscape Architects (SILA), the 55th IFLA World Congress will be held in Sands Expo and Convention Centre, Marina Bay Sands, Singapore on 18 – 21 July 2018.

Held in conjunction with Singapore Garden Festival 2018 which will take place on 21 – 29 July 2018, National Parks Board is the Organising Partner of IFLA World Congress 2018.

IFLA 2018 will be held in Singapore, the ‘City in a Garden’, which is also recognised as a Biophilic City. This vision reinforces the importance of landscape architecture, in partnership with other disciplines, in the continuous shaping of our living environment.

IFLA 2018 will bring the industry together to reflect on the interaction between urban and natural environments. The Congress will host a privileged field for conversation in the context of greening strategies within rapidly growing cities, application of potential technologies to provide insight into design processes and capacities to adapt to changing environmental conditions. IFLA 2018 will also continue to investigate emerging questions in the practice of landscape architecture with communities, architecture and engineering through the themes of Biophilic City, Smart Nation and Future Resilience.
