Fourth Arte-Polis International Conference and Workshop
Living Smart by Design
Bandung, 5-7 July 2012


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

initiative of the Architecture Program at ITB’s School of Architecture,
Planning and Policy Development in collaboration with other creative

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.

The aim of Arte-Polis 4 is to connect together practitioners, academics,
community leaders, government officials, policy-makers, artists and other
creative professionals from diverse disciplines and regions around the
world concerned with the quality of life and connected nature of creative
communities in urban, rural and pastoral places. Its objective is to share
and learn from international and local experiences regarding current
issues, best practices and policy implications of creative connectivity on
