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 ?

The discussion will be held at RAW Office at 6.30 pm [16.30] on 28th August 2014 . The material will be explained briefly by Realrich followed by open discussion among participants.

Kindly make your reservation to or as soon as possible (seats are limited) Thanks and see you !

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

OMAH Architecture Library was established to accomodate young people for accessible knowledge about architecture in Indonesia.Louis Kahn once shared about his wisdom,quote 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, Omah started with small things, one thing at a time. Omah does hope the positive mindset might improve architecture as a profession or as good culture basis in greater scale.

R A W [legally known as PT.Realrich Architecture Workshop] is an international architecture practice with office in Jakarta established by Realrich Sjarief. The company permanently employs nearly 15 people led by Realrich, himself, the people are from around Indonesia, each selected, enhanced for their best capability, experience and passion. The company’s staff has the expertise to provide full architectural design services, from concept design stage to construction supervision. Our design skills also include interior design, town planning and urban design, landscape design and exhibition design services. Since its formation in 2013, R A W has successfully undertaken and completed over 300 projects across Asia Pacific. Among its best known works are: National Gallery of Indonesia, Jakarta; UPH Medical School at Karawaci ; Bare Minimalist for Charles Wiriawan ; Akanaka, Jakarta.

The quality of RAW’s work has been recognised by over 16 design awards, including finalist of Indonesian Institute of Architect Jakarta Award (IAI) and winning several open and limited competitions. In all our work we aim to address the challenge of the specific situation, creating creative innovation which push the boundary in architectural design solution. In the design process we continue to push the building system, building envelope, building philosophy, breaking the foundation of the core problem which come up with the best solution specifically in each situation.

Our method of working is we believe in workshop between clients, engineers, and specific consultants from beginning of the project through completion of project. The approach is not conventional and sometime involves the use of the mock up models to help test and develop the proposed design concepts. We also believe that the design process is complex and requires complete understanding of creative solution, core of the problem, and specific situation which defines each situation.

RAW won 2nd prize WWF Station for Orang Utan

RAW won 2nd prize WWF station for Orang Utan. World Wildlife Fund for nature (WWF) Indonesia has long been recognized as an international non-governmental organization working on issues regarding the conservation, research and restoration of the environment. The station for Orang Utan Research facility provides the research lab for preserving habitat of orang Utan. It design responds to rational for specific research, encouraging intercommunication and providing flexible, light filled working spaces in which research teams can expand and contact with ease.

The area is 12 hours drive continues by 1.5 hours transport by long boat, in total almost 900 km distance from Pontianak, the nearest city. Thedesign synthesized called for close proximity between laboratories, core support areas, offices, and Bedroom. Two organic wings and one ore frame a linear configuration formed by repetition of triangular shape which we called a practical form which is easy to construct and cheap on the budget wise. This is a philosophy beyond the functionalism which synthesized wood as the only sustainable material which has to be used.

Looking at the extinction of orang utan species, Together with the implementation of this station for research these buildings in the initial proposal hopefully will bring beautiful impact on the architecture of research facilities around the world. Not only have they set new technical standards but they represent an exciting new research environment to live with.
