Since 2013, HABITechno has been organized by Department of Architecture, School of Architecture, Planning and Policy Development, Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB) in collaboration with other institutions in Housing and Settlement and Building Technology in Indonesia and abroad.
HABITechno5 will be held on November 11th, 2021 in ITB with ‘Adaptive Technology for Resilient Human Settlement’ as the theme.
It responds to the advance of digitalization and globalization of the world which makes problems of achieving sustainable competitiveness, networking, and community. It aims to critically revisit and rethink the existing and the potential of such development by underlining, as well as proposing solution for sustainable development under conditions of transition in developing countries.
In doing so, the theme promotes wider participation from presenters and audience with wide-range topics from architecture, social, environment, and economic dimensions. To enrich the discourses, the conference invites potential stakeholders in adaptive technology as keynote speakers to induce knowledge exchange between academia and practitioners, both from national and international perspectives.
