Public Lecture #36 – Architecture without Architects: Indonesian Vernacular Architecture in Contemporary Era

Howdy, Restless Spirits! Happy November!

We will gather again, this saturday, 18th November 2017 for Public Lecture;
Architecture without Architects: Indonesian Vernacular Architecture in Contemporary Era

As architects, we are invited to progressively innovate, to always come up with mind-blowing ideas, not previously apparent to wide audiences. In times when vernacular architecture is stereotyped as outdated, uncool, and even horrific and lowly, we as Indonesians bear the idea of preserving our cultural heritage without degrading the grand ideas termed by our ancestors. As Indonesian architects, we are invited to actively play a role in updating the concept of vernacular architecture and preserving it in the stream of contemporariness. Through examples of how architects, communities, and activists work toward preserving our vernacular culture, we will discuss how we as contemporary Indonesian architects should view vernacularism in today era. Moreover, we will cover how we can incorporate vernacularism into contemporary architecture practice.
