SHIFT 2020 International Architectural Conference

KL Convention Centre


Date: 14 & 15 March 2020, 9AM - 6PM

Venue: KL Convention Centre Plenary Hall


Doma Initiatives was formed in 2017 as an independent and not-for-profit Architecture Foundation to support the development of young architects and students. It is an open platform, allowing us to network freely and openly on all matters of Architecture and Design. 


Shift is our annual flagship international architectural conference that brings together a mix of the region’s best emerging architects and world class architects from around the world for a discourse on ideas and issues that have an impact on our work and role as Architects in the built environment.


Today, the relationship between “architecture” and “community” is inextricably complex, paradoxical and evolving. On one hand, the impact of technology such as social media has enabled virtual communal space resulting in formation of global communities across borders and continents. Conversely, the impacts of global- ization, migration and climate change have resulted in concepts of local communities, displaced communities, resilient and contested communities. These circumstances have opened up a contempo- rary discourse on the role of architecture in building communities. How is the notion of “community” defined and re-imagined through architecture? Through this inquiry, the challenge that architecture faces in these circumstances is two folds: how do we begin to define a commonality and differences that is necessary to forge a community, and in what way can architecture enact this through its physical space and built form.
