SPIRIT_45 adalah sebuah sesi dialog, momen diskursus, dan wahana apresiasi arsitektur. Andy Rahman, Eka Swadiansa dan Realrich Sjarief bertemu dan berdiskusi, merefleksikan pemikiran Arsitektur Indonesia dalam praktek keseharian biro masing-masing. Konsep/realisasi, abstrak/detail, besar/kecil, kesederhanaan/kompleksitas, visi desain/teknik keterbangunan –semua prihal praktek arsitektur dalam lingkup keterbatasan biro muda- dilakukan sebagai sebuah usaha dalam menjawab pertanyaan tema besar konferensi “The Rise of Asia in Global History and Perspective”. Menghasilkan pemikiran kolektif sementara; sebuah perjalanan bersama yang kemudian terus dipikirkan, direnungkan, dan dicari kembali maknanya – kenapa, untuk apa, dan untuk siapa. Acara SPIRIT_45: the Rise of Asia adalah sebuah jabat tangan yang lebih erat, kesempatan untuk berdiskusi lebih dalam, momentum untuk saling memberi dan menerima. Pencarian lebih lanjut terhadap makna dari sebuah kebersamaan.

Acara akan dibuka dengan penjelasan latar belakang dan posisi pemikiran arsitektur SPIRIT_45 terhadap konstruksi kurasi politik/ekonomi/budaya “the Rise of Asia” yang digawangi oleh Prof. Darwis Khudori. Meneruskan partisipasi di Prancis, di sesi pertama Eka Swadiansa akan mempresentasikan diskursus “Iconoloci: An Unfinished Manifesto” dengan landasan dua presentasi peer-reviewed papers berjudul: (i) “The Contradictions of Postmodern Architecture: From American Dream to Chinese Reality”, dan (ii) “The Origin of Postmodern Architecture: Eurocentric Pragmatism or Asian Symbolism”. Bertindak sebagai Copernicus’ Paradigm, paper pertama akan bercerita mengenai sudut pandang lain dalam memahami (budaya) arsitektur postmodern diluar batasan pembacaan popular pendidikan/media berbasis eurosetris. Sementara itu, bertidak sebagai Darwin’s Primordial, paper kedua akan menyajikan secara singkat dialektika historis arsitektur kontemporer (modernis dan posmodernis) dan bagaimana perkembangannya telah menciptakan jebakan nihilisme tak berujung.

Di sesi kedua Realrich Sjarief akan membahas 3 Presedents 3 Researches: Positioning the Research of Architecture Practice. Dimulai dengan pembedahan 3 buah literatur preseden -Theoritical Anxiety… (Rafael Moneo, 2004), The Material Imagination (Mathew Mindrup, 2015), dan Conversation with Students (Louis Kahn, 1998)- presenter akan menunjukkan bagaimana pendekatan desain erat dipengaruhi oleh objek riset yang dilakukan oleh arsitek/biro yang bersangkutan, sebuah pembuktian tentang pentingnya riset bahkan untuk kalangan praktisi. Kemudian presentasi akan dilanjutkan dengan memperkenalkan cetak biru program riset SPIRIT_45, yang secara independen tengah dilaksanakan oleh Andy Rahman, Eka Swadiansa, dan Realrich Sjarief dalam praktik bironya masing-masing.

Di sesi ketiga beranjak dari pemahaman kajian teori menuju dokumetasi proses pembuatan karya terbangun, Andy Rahman akan membahas tentang Omah Boto: Introducing SPIRIT_45’s First Vignette. Sesi ini adalah sebuah teaser dari publikasi SPIRIT_45 Book Series selanjutnya. Berbeda dengan Almanac Cultural Hypnosis… yang cenderung bersifat teoritis dengan isu pembahasan berskala global, Omah Boto adalah entitas yang 180 derajat berkebalikan; sepenuhnya bermuatan lokal (local content), dan berorientasi praktek murni (practical orientation). Harapannya publikasi ini akan menjadi bagian dari pengembangan literasi arsitektur yang memang masih kurang diminati oleh praktisi -terutama praktisi-praktisi muda- di Indonesia.

Sebagai penutup, SPIRIT_45 akan mempresentasikan “What is next ?” guna membawa kajian Spirit 45 kembali kepada konteks kekinian, merajut tautan dengan ‘Rise of Asia’ sebagai buah karya ‘Bandung Spirit’ (www.bandungspirit.org) yang meneruskan semangat Asia Afrika (1955) dan Tri Continentalle (1966) dibawah komite 32 scientific board dari 16 negara; sembari memperkenalkan konsep Neo Vernacularism sebagai sudut pandang alternatif dalam membaca ulang sejarah Arsitektur dunia.
