Forming Bricolage

This writing is for Archidiaries’s venue, Reflections#2 which I have prepared a writing and book about it. It’s a reflective journey to find discourse between practice and pedagogy. The both of streams colors my practice in RAW Architecture and more discouses in Omah Library.

There is a reflection that the young generation forgets the old wisdom that can teach us about the building technologies of the past. This old wisdom forms a bricolage architecture. It is an understanding that, to design and build something out of the land, you need to find the roots of Local Genius people. This concept explores how architecture should be tested by the optimization of local resources, building technology, and the implementation method, which together build the structure of local genius.

This presentation explores the root and progression of the social structure that cultivates the building tradition, manifested in generations of traditional craftspeople. It is not limited to the debate of how we should preserve the form of modern architecture, but it rather discusses the evolution of future architecture with the spirit of modern architecture by the introduction of a model of craftsmanship – a total adaptation of craftspeople, architect, builder, and client into one holistic ecosystem. It’s a humble and honest attempt to reflect on RAW Architecture Practice in Indonesia – Forming Bricolage.
