dari Bandung, untuk Indonesia, menginspirasi Dunia
Returning from his two-week visit to London in 2006, where he accepted the International Young Design Entrepreneur of the Year (IYDEY) award, architect M. Ridwan Kamil brought home an unusual souvenir.
Arriving back in his hometown of Bandung, Ridwan carried the results of research he found on how creative activity drives the economy of England’s capital.
“I saw a shift in economic activities in London, where communities are moved by strong ideas. The interesting thing was that economic activities that started from a powerful idea didn’t always rely on big capital. Whoever was the most creative was the most successful,” he said.
