Jakarta Design Week 2017 will be held by Indonesian Institute of Architects (IAI – Jakarta).
Chairman of Indonesian Institute of Architects Jakarta Stevanus J Manahampi, said, “The main problem of urbanisation is that the availability of land is limited but the price is high. This poses a challenge for homeowners and architects to design a minimalist yet functional home. MEGABUILD Indonesia will give a new knowledge of the latest technology suitable for quality future housing, as well as becoming a primary reference for architects, interior designers, developers, contractors, consultants and public. Through our seminar and workshop, we are optimistic that MEGABUILD Indonesia will become all-in-one solutions for all.”
