UK architect Asif Khan is to design the Future Memory Pavilion in Singapore as part of the city’s annual ArchiFest in October 2011.

The Future Memory Pavilion is being organised by the British Council in partnership with the Royal Academy of Arts, London and the Preservation of Monuments Board in Singapore.

Dealing with the issues of land and climate at the heart of Singapore’s heritage, Asif Khan will create a structure made from ice and sand that will mutate during the lifespan of the project.

The Future Memory Pavilion aims to raise awareness in Singapore of the next generation of British architects.

The Future Memory Pavilion is supported by Arup (Singapore), RSP Architects and the National Museum of Singapore.
