Architecture Pilgrimage Trip: Towards Works of Tan Tjiang Ay

Hi, Restless Spirits!

We will held Architecture Pilgrimage Trip: Towards Works of Tan Tjiang Ay

The Netherlands formed cities in Indonesia, with the concept of garden city, according to his dream. Every houses have wide border, the fence is just trees and bushes. In the Netherlands there is a block in Hilversum City that represents it, even its name using the name of islands in Indonesia. In Indonesia environment with this concept is now gone.

In the present, the tendencies of people to build a house is on small land and with a budget that is not too high.

As an architect, it needs to be maintained. Sometimes clients want to buy “kijang”, but operate it like “ferrari”, and vice versa. Sometimes mistakes happen because the architect misunderstood the needs. Therefore when reviewing a project, it is necessary to look at the architect’s intentions and what’s really going on.

Tan Tjiang Ay is a senior architect of Indonesia. He studied architecture at ITB, then Parahyangan University before pursuing his career. After 12 years working with his associates, he established The Office of Tan Tjiang Ay Architect. He felt the urge to develop his personal character in architecture.
