It is a distinct great pleasure and honour for us as the conference committee to welcome all of you to the 5th ICRP. The conference will be held on September 15 to 16 2021, in Banda Aceh, Aceh Province, Indonesia. This conference is hosted by Department of Architecture and Planning, Syiah Kuala University in collaboration with Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM), Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM), and Chulalongkorn University.
The recent events of the outbreak of Covid-19 have shaken our ideas and perceptions of the ways we live. It forces us to pause for a moment and reconsider things. It has shown different scale of disruption across the world, especially in relation between people and built environment where we spend more time. Many significant festive events and rituals cancelled or postponed. Some communities can no longer access the offices, schools, public and cultural and natural spaces and places of memory necessary for expressing their culture and wellbeing, while others are restricted from coming together to share and enjoy many aspects of their life, which is so vital to the life of their communities. It has also resulted in loss of income for some people. However, it is little known to what extend built environment still play a role in pandemic mitigation, community resilience, and the adaptation of the ways we use built environment and promote sustainable development. The COVID-19 crisis has changed the face of many our cities and questioned how we should manage urban life.
During the pandemic, not only well-established sustainable pillars, economic, environment, and social, are matter, but also other aspects such as health, technology, and culture plays important roles in coping with pandemic. For example, communal culture like in Indonesia experience more challenges in reducing the infection because it fails, among others, to promote social distancing. Before developing medications for an epidemic, one solution is to go back to the physical and built environment to reduce its impact. Epidemics have transformed our built environment because of the fear of infection. Consequently, architecture and urbanism after the Covid-19 epidemic will never be the same.
For this reason, the conference takes opportunity to promote a main theme Rethinking Sustainable Built Environment in the context of the COVID-19 Pandemic: Health, Technological, Social, and Cultural Aspects and invites interdisciplinary, cross-cultural and integrated studies and perspectives on examining to visualize the post-pandemic sustainable built-environment. This conference invites research, discussion, design and planning of what the antivirus-built environment looks. It encourages the search for suitable design ideas, trends, and planning theories to provide the required protection from virus attacks and continue to add more layers in the defence system of our built environment.
We are looking forward to welcoming you to the conference.
