Belajar Arsitektur #03 – Genius Loci

Hi Restless Spirit!

We invite you to OMAH program “Belajar Arsitektur” that will be held every Tuesday at 19.00 WIB.

The lecture will be presented by fellow practitioner, Tirta Budiman based on books and architectural figure study. For our next session, we will discuss a topic about Phenomenology, especially focused on Genius Loci, from the book written by Christian Norberg-Schulz in 1979.

Man dwells when he can orient himself within and identify himself with an environment, or, in short, when he experiences the environment as meaningful. Dwelling therefore implies something more than “shelter”. It implies that the spaces where life occurs are places, in the true sense of the word. A place is a space which has a distinct character. Since ancient times the genius loci, or “spirit of place”, has been recognized as the concrete reality man has to face and come to terms with in his daily life. Architecture means to visualize the genius loci, and the task of the architect is to create meaningful places, whereby he helps man to dwell.

The discussion will be held on:
