The internet is impacting our daily  behavior patterns and consequently also our way of thinking. Computational-based methodologies and Artificial Intelligence rapidly become possible to offer new approaches in the making of place. It is not only human behind the machine who creates new  roles of space, but also society who uses the technology to generate new requirements of space.

This conference aims to discuss how and to what extent do people put creative design approach within the scope of the digital era?  Furthermore, this event also reviews how do creative activities manage, plan, design, and produce space?
