Archrival is a non-profit organisation that unites the creative community through unsolicited projects. Archrival operates strategically, and explores new thinking about how to reshape modes of architecture and design practice. Archrival was formed in 2011 and has involved hundreds of collaborators in its projects to date.
Archrival has participated in leading events and exhibitions including Sydney Fringe (2011), Sydney Festival (2012), the 13th Venice International Biennale of Architecture (2012), Sydney Art Month (2013), Mercedes Benz Fashion Week (2013), Art & About (2013), and Completed Streets (2013). Our projects have ranged from custom furniture to set design, large scale interactive installations, critical writing, strategic infrastructure, collaborative workshops and pop-up exhibitions.
Archrival believes that standard practices need to be challenged in order to remain valid, and we seek to do so through exploring the possibilities of creative rivalry, interdisciplinary collaboration and innovation.
