Creative Connectivity and the Making of Place

Arte-Polis 4 builds on the successes of previous Arte-Polis international conferences and design workshops in 2006, 2008 and 2010. Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB) is proud to present in 2012 an international conference and workshop with the theme “Creative Connectivity and the Making of Place: Living Smart by Design”. This biennial event is an initiative of the Architecture Program at ITB’s School of Architecture, Planning and Policy Development in collaboration with other creative institutions. Besides referring to a network society, connectivity with regards to living smart by design can be linked to creatively connecting different actors in society (community, business, government, academia); the past, present and future; culture, economy and place; the collaboration between art, media and technology; theory and practice; the informal and formal; education, research and industry; as well as the design, planning, and management of livable environments.
