The 5th GASS is scheduled for December 5th-7th, 2008. It will be held at the Department of Architecture, School of Design and Environment, National University of Singapore. The call for papers puts forward a provocative string of themes, FUTURE | ASIAN | SPACE. They chart a field, which provokes discussion about the future of Asian urbanism. GASS 5 is projected to act as a catalyst for intellectual speculation about Asian cities in the 21st century.
