Recent trends indicate the dramatic and significant shift from the conventional approach of seeing things for granted to ‘disruptive innovation.’ It splintered into many aspects of individuals and communities, including planning and design. Not only does disruptive innovation become a cornerstone in current academic discourses, it also calls for new approaches in observing, critiquing and analyzing our contemporary issues and problems. As such, disruptive innovation deconstructs our comfort zone and engages us in a new territory.

The 4th International Conference on Indonesian Architecture and Planning (ICIAP) uses these ideas as backdrop for critically examining the effect of disruptive innovation in planning and design, including but not limited to the application of it and policy responses. At the same time, the conference also considers topics related to globalization and the way it stimulates creative disruption in planning and design. We encourage papers that consider disruptive innovation as another form of machine capable to co-opt various actors and institutions in disseminating certain social, economic and cultural values, planning and design as a form of resistance against the commodification process diffused across space and social groups and is systematically embedded in the structural power relations of innovation politics, and historical assessment of built environment as a form of disruptive innovation.
