《Urban Flux 城市空间设计》#34 Indonesia Architecture | guest-edited by MovingCities

Urban Flux magazine #34 | ‘INDONESIA Architecture’
guest-edited by MovingCities [September _December 2013]

Published in December 2013, MovingCities guest-edited a special bilingual 90-page issue of the Chinese architecture magazine Urban Flux 城市空间 设计 [volume 34/2013-6] entitled “INDONESIAN ARCHITECTURE: TROPICAL AND EMERGING” 新兴崛起的印度尼西亚热带建筑.

Commissioned by URBAN FLUX  城市空间 设计 [chengshi kongjian~urban space design], an architectural and urbanism magazine hosted by Tianjin University, this especial report gives to a Chinese and international public, for the first time, a comprehensive overview of contemporary Indonesian architectural practices.

With Indonesian Architecture: Tropical and Emerging, MovingCities along with Indonesian architect Danny Wicaksono, provide an insight into contemporary tropical architectural design, by focusing on what local architects have constructed, researched and learned – throughout the past decade.

Next to introducing historical depth to the discourse on contemporary Indonesian architecture – whether developed by Dutch [Hendrik Petrus Berlage (1856-1934), C.P. Wolff Schoemaker (1882-1949)], under colonial circumstances, or by American architects [Paul Rudolph (1918-1997)], prior to the 1990s recession – this 90-pages magazine introduces the dawn of a new architectural awareness (and generation of young architects) that are poised to change the architecture of today’s Indonesia. These include Andra Matin, mamostudio, SUB, Studio TonTon, Studio Dasar, d-associates, Willis Kusuma Architects, ABODAY and HGT Architects.

Complementing these architectural practices, emphasis was placed on non-profit and community based architectural endeavors, hence the inclusion of artist/architect Eko Prawoto’s community-based reconstruction of an earthquake stricken area – “Nqibikan Village Reconstruction” (short-listed in 2010’s Aga Khan Award for Architecture); and the Rumah Asuh’s “Preservation of the Mbaru Niang”-project (winner of the aforementioned award, in 2013), led by architect Yori Antar.
