Omah Library was published in konteks.org

Omah Library, one of RAW’s design was published in konteks.org for its spirit , please check the article here “Sekitar tiga tahun lalu saya berkunjung ke garasi sebuah rumah bernomor 1 di jalan Pulau Ayer II, Puri Indah, Jakarta Barat. Kurang lebih 20 orang meramaikan garasi tersebut dan kami menghabiskan lebih dari dua jam menonton dan berdiskusi tentang film “How Much Your Building Weigh Mr. Foster?”. Di tempat yang sama berkali-kali setelahnya diadakan pula acara arsitektural yang menyenangkan nan edukatif lainnya….”

RAW supports OMAH Library

RAW supports OMAH Library. OMAH Architecture Library was established by Realrich Sjarief, sponsored by RAW Architecture at the end of 2014 to accomodate young people for accessible knowledge about architecture in Indonesia. We are working on part time basis to support the architecture community which is why the library is only open during saturday and sunday. Louis Kahn once shared about his wisdom, quotations from Kahn, one of which reads: “Schools began with a man under a tree who did not know he was a teacher, sharing his realization with a few others who did not know they were students.” It’s the beginning to from a society of education, an institution of man. It is simply like what we have been doing, we start with small things, one thing at a time. We do hope the positive mindset might improve architecture as a profession or as good culture basis in greater scale. At the end, while we do not know what will happen at the end our journey, let’s deepen our understanding about architecture and its beauty, the spirit which envelope our life, like it or not, it shapes our culture.

MIXED-USE DEVELOPMENT Delivering high-end and innovative development for a maximised revenue opportunities


Realrich Sjarief was a panelist in the event hosted by trueventus which titled “MIXED-USE DEVELOPMENT Delivering high-end and innovative development for a maximised revenue opportunities”. he brought discussion about context in real practice in Indonesia together with Adjie Negara, and Bima Sarumpaet.

here is the brief explanation :

The city of Jakarta is gorged with construction plots and cranes operating 24-hour cycles in ensuring on-time delivery for a The city of Jakarta is gorged with construction plots and cranes operating 24-hour cycles in ensuring on-time delivery for a hungry and demanding property market. Jakarta is one of the fastest developing cities around the world and this trend is expected to continue as it sways its way in becoming a global and modern metropolis. The city government is determined to build an effective infrastructure and transport system to place it on an equal footing with other large regional and international urban centers.

Property investors are now facing high demand for high-tech operating Mixed-Use that will adhere effectively to the cities infrastructure. Local developers, architects and contractors are in the verge of identifying the types of properties that fit into the Mixed-Use genre. Mixed-Use properties are now known as the golden egg in a developer’s portfolio. Since 2012, prices of properties have significantly increased in Jakarta, by 20 to 30 per cent with an average occupancy rate above 90% for both residential and commercial sectors.

Growing demand for real estate in Indonesia amidst strong economic performance and global investor interest, this conference will be the ideal one-stop platform for developers. Join Trueventus at Mixed-Use Development Jakarta 2014 and dive deep into the process of mastering Mixed-Use projects and ensuring successful delivery that will last for decades thus becoming an icon of a city.

This unique conference will bring delegates the benefits of:
• Analysing the impact on the public space done by successful Mixed-Use complex
• Building long-term beneficial partnerships and strategic alliances in Mixed-Use projects
• Augmenting the value of the Mixed-Use development projects with effective management of cost and time
• Assessing latest building material technology for sustainable development and effective construction
• Learning best practices in Mixed-Use development projects • Venturing into Mixed-Use framework, development and design
concepts for on-going projects

Lecture Series – Collaboration between UPH School of Design and RAW

RAW collaborated with UPH School of Design to provide long life learning process between Architects, Lecturer, fresh graduates, or even people who has interest in Architecture by establishing lecture series.

The first lecture is about Working Ideas by Critics in Architecture

“He has a right to criticize, who has a heart to help.” ― Abraham Lincoln

David Hutama will share lecture about working Ideas by critics in architecture. There were times when architecture changed because of paradigm breakdown just by nature of human, technology and civilisation. It established by success and failure. Critic which is a Greek derivation of the word κριτής (krités), meaning a person who offers reasoned judgment or analysis, value judgment, interpretation or observation. Critic has the position to move public opinion because of his or her credibility, reputation, depth of analysis.

Critics become complex because there are various skill which is needed such as history, precedents, or understanding elements of architecture which then judge one work in process creating excellence in working architecture.

We invited students and fresh graduates for our mini lecture series or brown bag.

It’s all about sharing working ideas by critics in architecture. It’s all discussing the possible answer of :
1) What or How is the core of critics in architecture ?
2) What is needed for preparing good critics to evaluate architecture/ design performance ?
3) What or How is the to establish opinion in architecture given by the reality ?
4) Why the critic is important ? or what is the ethic to maintain critical opinion ?

David Hutama is chair department of UPH School of Design. After receiving his bachelor degree from Parahyangan University in the year 2000, he went to Toyohashi University of Technology, Japan, to pursue his master degree in History and Theory of Architecture. In 2005 he join Department of Architecture in Universitas Pelita Harapan. David was part of the steering committee team for Jakarta Architecture Biennale 2009 and Art Director for Rubber Wood Architecture Exhibition in 2010. In 2012 he worked as the curator of Place.Making Exhibition, an exhibition of Department of Architecture UPH at Dia.Lo.Gue Exhibition, Kemang. Together with Avianti Armand and Robin Hartanto co-edited ‘Home: a Studio Talk’, published by UPH Press. He was curator of Indonesia Pavilion in Venice Biennale 2014

The discussion will be held at RAW Office at 9.30 am on 20th September 2014 . The introduction will be followed by open discussion among participants.

Landscape Urbanism Paradigm

We are currently researching Landscape Urbanism Paradigm for Urban Design Development in Made in Jakarta.

W H Y L A N D S C A P E U R B A N I S M ?

Current urban developments in Indonesian cities construct its field with prioritizing the arrangement of grey infrastructures, such as road, building blocks and utility network; rather than the incorporation of open space and existing natural ecosystem. Eventually, cities become too dense and unhealthy for its inhabitants. The generic approach tend to create acontextual and unsustainable developments, where city lacks livable and enjoyable public spaces; as well as flooding, pollution, traffic jam becoming the cities’ major problems.

This come from inability of the present paradigm to balance the development of grey and green infrastructures. We need to seriously start to rethink the importance of infrastructural landscapes, instead only grey as the new possible framework for city-making. In order to achieve a sustainable future for Jakarta.

Among recent college grads, architecture majors by far have the highest unemployment rate at 13.9%. That’s according to a new report from the Georgetown Center on Education and the Workforce. The collapse of the construction and home-building industries in the recession is to blame. Even after gaining years of experience, architecture grads ages 30 and up, have a high unemployment rate at 9.2%. [CNN@2012]

4th Lecture : Working Ideas in Business.

“Being good in business is the most fascinating kind of art. Making money is art and working is art and good business is the best art.”
Andy Warhol

There were times when people started defining business by simply delivering good product to the customer or client. It started by establishing one relationship to another relationship between architect and clients. In this lecture we will discuss about the experience bringing business into worth living relationship between clients, architects, and between people inside the firm. We invited students and fresh graduates for our mini brown bag. It’s about sharing entrepreneurship in architecture. It’s all discussing the answer of :

1) What or How is the core of relationship between clients and architect ?
2) What is needed for establishing architecture studio ?
3) What or How is the challenge given by the reality ?
4) Why the ethic is important ? or what is the ethic to maintain relationship ?

2nd Lecture Series :

Almost always the men who achieve these fundamental inventions of a new paradigm have been either very young or very new to the field whose paradigm they change. — Thomas S. Kuhn

Dalam sejarah arsitektur, keragaman paradigma dalam desain adalah salah satu cara untuk melihat keragaman dalam berarsitektur. Dimana kita menjadi manusia yang lekat dengan tradisi berpikir, berargumentasi, pemilihan keputusan desain berdasarkan pertimbangan – pertimbangan empiris dan rasional yang matang. Proses untuk mencipta ini yang kemudian menjadi penting, karena adanya kekreatifan dalam proses mendesain. Proses dimana kita bisa mendapatkan pelajaran yang lebih baik, sehingga untuk pada saatnya mendesain nanti bisa memberikan desain yang lebih baik dibandingkan sebelumnya. Proses berpikir ini yang kita coba gali dari dua orang dari generasi muda, Ivan Nasution dan Rizki Supratman. Ivan yang berkerja di NUS [National University of Singapore] dan Rizki yang berkerja sebagai di OMA [Office for Metropolitan Architecture] satu biro yang didirikan oleh Rem Koolhas. Sharing pengalaman dari kedua orang ini diharapkan bisa membawa dialog yang akan membawa peserta untuk memahami dunia arsitektur lebih dalam dalam lingkup teori dan praktik. 2nd session copy

Archinesia Vol.5 – Good Design in Architecture Now.

Realrich is interviewed in Archinesia Vol.5 – Good Design in Architecture Now. Please check the note from Archinesia :

One of the most important (and now quite dominant) processes in architecture is design process, and the goal of architecture design is to attain good design.

Good design has a double meaning, aesthetic and ethic. In architecture the two should be united as a single goal that a design process should strive for. Moreover, an architectural product does not only affect its client and architect. On a broader level, architectural products also affect their surrounding environments. In a larger scale, they may even have an effect on the economy and the social and political condition.

The question is: how does an architectural design attain the label ‘good design’? We tried to find the answer through a round table discussion by inviting the two groups of architecture professionals in Indonesia: practitioners and academics. What are their thoughts on this matter? You can peruse them in the Main Coverage of Archinesia Bookgazine Volume 5. The main coverage is a transcription of the presentation of each speakers of the round table discussion, with no intervention whatsoever from our writers, which tends to steer the readers’ opinions. Why did we choose to run the transcription as is? Through this direct transcription we invite our readers to be present in the midst of the conversation circle. But what about the arguments and the formed opinions? We let them open for our readers to process, analyze, and summarize. Because we know there are no such things as standard parameters for good design. Whether or not good design is achieved by an architectural product, it is highly dependent to the condition and context of where we are.

Good designs can aslo be enjoyed through architectural works. This time we have several architects whose works are exhibited for the first time in the pages of ARCHINESIA Bookgazine, even though they are quite famous in ASEAN’s architectural scene. They are Duangrit Bunnag from Bangkok and Singapore based DP Architects and ONG&ONG. We are also delighted to show the works of young architects who are always emerging in ASEAN area, such as Revano Satria (Semarang, Indonesia), Archimetric (Surabaya, Indonesia), and Studiodasar (Jakarta, Indonesia). Are their works entitled to be called good design? We’ll let you, readers, to be the judge. At the very least, these select works are an effort to bring good design to architecture today.

Regards,
Imelda Akmal

RAW supports Konteks.org

RAW supports Konteks.org which is one publication unit of University of Pelita Harapan [UPH] lead by David Hutama.

catatan tentang konteks.org

ada suatu hari, kami mendiskusikan kemungkinan membuat publikasi arsitektur yang, selain bisa berguna dan tidak mengulang apa yang memang sudah ada, cocok juga dengan minat kami. Beberapa ide seru bermunculan: sketsa, dialog, cerita, proses, dan berbagai hal yang justru diam-diam bersembunyi di balik kehadiran suatu karya. Rupanya, ketertarikan kami pada arsitektur justru terletak bukan pada karya tok, melainkan pada interaksi karya tersebut dengan segala hal yang melingkunginya.

Melalui inisiasi dan dukungan dari Universitas Pelita Harapan, maka inilahKonteks, publikasi online seputar arsitektur yang tidak ingin berputar-putar membahas karya arsitektur saja. Harafiahnya, “konteks” berarti keadaan yang melingkungi suatu keberadaan. Kata ini mengingatkan kami juga akan peribahasa lawas “di mana bumi dipijak, di situ langit dijunjung”. Dengan semangat yang sama, Konteks bermaksud merenangi dan menyelami samudra pembahasan arsitektur, dari karya, tokoh, sampai wacana, sambil tetap meletakkan apa yang dibahas pada tempatnya.

Sketsa, Tampak, Perspektif dan Kolase menjadi judul rubrik untuk menggambarkan apa yang kami lihat dan bagaimana cara kami melihatnya.Sketsa—sebagai alegori dari catatan ringkas, ringan, personal dan mungkin saja tidak tuntas—menampilkan kilasan arsitektural yang kaya jejak. Tampak—sebagai alegori dari apa yang terlihat dari satu sisi—menampilkan ulasan karya atau acara. Perspektif—sebagai alegori atas apa yang terlihat dari sudut pandang tertentu—menampilkan berbagai ulasan mendalam yang sarat pendapat. Kolase—sebagai alegori dari perpaduan potongan-potongan gambar yang semula tak berhubungan—menampilkan bahasan lintas disiplin demi menemukan pemahaman segar.

RAW is in Archinesia 4th Edition : Cross Border Architecture

Archinesia published Akanaka in its 4th edition

The countries in this region seem to have been overlooked, whereas they have distinctive characteristics resulting from their similarities, which, among others, are similarity in historical background as some of the countries were colonized by the same colonizers (Portuguese, British, Dutch, and Japanese); identical climate condition as the countries lie near the equator; and closeness in ethnicity, ways of life, culture, and even foods. All these influence the region’s architectural development.

Then, two coincidences happened: first, we were preparing ARCHINESIA Volume 4 on the theme of “Cross-Border”, and, second, Association Southeast Asian Nation (ASEAN) apparently has prepared the ASEAN Mutual Recognition Arrangement on Architectural Services which will take effect next two years. Therefore, in this edition we discuss the theme of “Cross-Border” with a particular context of Southeast Asia. We interviewed some sources to collect the agreement-related information that Southeast Asian architects must know about.

Moreover, this edition also covered a special report on the World Architecture Festival 2013 (WAF 2013), which took place recently in Singapore from 2 to 4 October. This year’s festival was more vibrant from that of last year, especially with the presence of architects’ latest creations, which include the winner or Building of the Year category from New Zealand.

As you would expect the ARCHINESIA Volume 4 also presents architecture creations from ASEAN architects, news, agenda, and many more reports that will broaden horizons of readers and architecture enthusiasts in Southeast Asia.

Bare Minimalist is in ruang 07 |2013 “Rumah”

Mengenai Ruang – Memasyarakatkan Arsitektur

Ruang membentuk individu, individu membentuk masyarakat, dan masyarakat membentuk ruang. Seolah siklus, yang tak berujung dan tak bermula; seperti kisah telur dan ayam. Ruang dibentuk oleh individu-individu kemudian merupa individu-individu lain. Kita, manusia, dicipta oleh ruang, dan kita, manusia, mencipta ruang. Arsitektur bermula dari sebuah ruang.

Ruang adalah saya, kamu dan dia. Kita membentuk ruang, ruang berusaha menawarkan cara pandang kepada masyarakat yang nantinya akan kembali akan merupa diri kita sendiri. Ruang adalah kita. Ruang adalah keterkaitan, jaringan dan semangat kita – yang hidup dan dihidupkan oleh kontribusi kita. Ruang menawarkan kacamata dalam melihat arsitektur dan berusaha memasyarakatkannya.

Lobang Kayu is in Archinesia 3rd Edition : Does Architecture shape the city or vise versa ?

Lobang Kayu is in Archinesia 3rd Edition : Does Architecture shape the city or vise versa ?

Does Architecture Shape the City or Vice Versa ?

When we first set foot on a city, the first objects we are aware of are the buildings standing on it, because architecture is a visual object that most strongly shape the face of any city. Then, inevitably, the question arises in our minds: “Does architecture shape the city, or vice versa?” We asked the question to several urban experts and they all said that a city is not only shaped by its architecture, but also by its government policies, politics, economy, capital, people, transportation, and even by events held inside it. Although—undoubtedly—architecture is often used and exploited in pursuit of the ambition to create a memorable city, so much so that many cities in the world race to invite world renowned architects—or star architects, if you will—to design a number of awe inspiring urban objects or architecture. And oftentimes these constructions are nothing more than display ‘objects’, or will someday become one.

In this volume, ARCHINESIA Bookgazine observes and discusses cities in their relation to architecture. Jakarta is recently criticized by its own governor as a city bereft of identity with ‘faceless’ and generic buildings standing on it, making it identical with thousands of other cities in the world. But is identity truly the most important thing to develop in a city that is often considered grievously ill by its own citizens? We invited seven experts to give an answer about the architecture of Jakarta. Post-war Cambodia is also interesting to peruse. This Southeast Asia country is currently rebuilding its cities in the aftermath of a long fought war. On the other hand, London is changing the face of its eastern parts after the Olympic Games. Melaka, a city recognized as a world heritage city, is struggling to conserve its old architecture. Singapore, on the other hand, invited world renowned architect to design and construct a new iconic building on the Marina Bay Sands area in an attempt to fulfill the ambition to be among the top cities in the world. Almere, a small town in the Netherlands built several eye-catching buildings to grab the attention of not only the world, but also its own citizens.

The minuscule observations of the abovementioned cities are of course insufficient to answer all our questions about cities and architecture. But they will at least try to give you an idea of how the relation between a city and its architecture can affect each other, how architecture may fill a void, or even have its functions questioned and contested, since, in essence, architecture is meant to improve the quality of the people that conducted their activities inside it.

50 Indonesian architects + Emergings

Realrich Sjarief is in 50 Indonesian architects + Emergings book by Imelda Akmal Architecture Writer. Here is the description by Jakarta Post : Over the past decade, Indonesian architects have redefined and rediscovered Indonesian architecture. By consistently building and experimenting, they have created a new face for contemporary Indonesian architecture.

Their efforts have paid off. Now the world has begun to recognize the remarkable work of Indonesian architects, many of whom have won several contests.

Indonesians have also begun to acknowledge architecture by adoring tall buildings and skyscrapers that flourissh in cities across the country that have been designed by local architects.

No doubt Indonesian architects have shaped this country and its society. Through the distinctive character of Indonesian architecture that they have brought to the surface, they have changed the perspective about Indonesian architecture and changed society to be the part of architecture as well.

But who would care to write about the people who were in charge of constructing dreams in the concrete jungle? It could only be Imelda Akmal.

Local architects should give a toast to Imelda for publishing another architecture book, 50 Indonesian Architects + Emergings. Once again, she has proven her passion for architecture by publishing books. Earlier, she published Indonesian Architecture Now and Indonesian Architecture Now 2.

Imelda is one of a few architects who enjoy careers as architectural writers. With her team members at the Imelda Akmal Architectural Writers Studio (Studio IAAW), she has published over 70 architectural works, though she said that there were numerous Indonesian architects who had a tremendous amount of work experience who should write about architecture.

“It doesn’t mean that they can’t write. They just haven’t wanted to, though I think they are competent to write architectural reviews or probably architectural critiques. That’s why I always encourage my colleagues to start writing. I hope this book also can be a trigger,” Imelda said at the book’s launch at The Dharmawangsa, South Jakarta.

Her new book is comprised of 50 short profiles of well-known Indonesian architectural firms and 13 new architectural firms (the “emergings”), who are considered influential on Indonesian architecture these days.

Imelda and her team separated the groups based on their years of experience. The Indonesian Architects group was dominated by architectural firms that were formed at least five years ago, while the Emergings category has profiles of new firms established less than five years ago.

Those 13 young names on the Emergings list include 12akitek, Aboday, Avianti Armand, Boy Bhirawa, DX6, HMP Architects, Labo, Made Dharmendra, Parametr architecture, Realrich sjarief, SUB Studio, Suwardana Winata, and Zenin Adrian, while the 50 Architects category included big names such as Andra Matin, Baskoro Tedjo, Grahacipta Hadiprana, PTI Architects, Sardjono Sani, Urbane and Yori Antar.
