Shortlisted Dezeen Award 2022 for Piyandeling

Kemarin kami satu studio foto bersama, dan akhirnya merayakan kebersamaan dengan es “dungdung”, karena suaranya yang dung dung. Momennya adalah perayaan sederhana karena salah satu karya kami @piyandeling masuk dalam daftar kategori rumah pedesaan. Kami mengucapkan terima kasih kepada @dezeenawards_ @dezeen .
.
Kategori pedesaan adalah kategori dalam Dezeen yang terdiri dari beberapa proyek rumah yang biasanya terletak di daerah terpencil yang kepadatannya lebih sedikit. Di Piyandeling, Lokasi terpencil membuka kepekaan kami terhadap material dan kerajinan setempat seperti Bambu dan kerajinannya digunakan sebagai bahan pertimbangan keputusan desain di dalam menggubah program dengan biaya dan waktu membangun yang terbatas.
.
Di dalam ranah global, karya – karya yang masuk membawa pendekatan yang bervariasi terhadap arsitektur. Kami belajar dari bahwa pembelajaran disini memiliki benang merah penggunaan material setempat, penggunaan inspirasi arsitektur tradisional, dan responsif terhadap iklim setempat. Hal tersebut di manifestasikan ke dalam pembentukan program ruang, bentuk massa, dan susunan detail arsitektural. Kami menarik 3 konsepsi di atas sebagai sebuah cara mendesain di RAW Architecture .
.
Piyandeling disusun dari 3 bagian utama, bagian pertama adalah Sumarah, tempat tinggal para pekerja (bedeng) yang berubah menjadi rumah tinggal 3 lantai dan dibungkus oleh plastik “recycle”. Bagian kedua adalah Kujang adalah setengah workshop, setengah kediaman dan ruang serba guna tempat fabrikasi kerajinan bambu. Dan bagian ketiga adalah Saderhana yang merupakan tempat tinggal sekaligus ruang doa dan gudang. Totalnya ada 7 kamar dengan berbagai macam besaran yang didukung oleh ruang serba guna sebagai rumah buku(perpustakaan warga) dan ruang doa.

The Purpose of Architecture Philosophy


Saya diminta oleh Unika Soegijapranata untuk membawakan materi “Peran Filsafat di dalam desain” untuk para mahasiswa. Kemudian saya sendiri banyak bertanya – tanya apa arti/peran filsafat di dalam praktik kami di studio RAW Architecture. Sejak dulu filsafat diyakini sebagai sebuah istilah yang berjarak, namun juga diyakini mampu menelurkan pemikiran tercanggih di jamannya. Filsafat adalah sebuah cara untuk mendapatkan kebenaran melalui verbal dan tulisan.
.
Hipotesanya adalah bagaimana menelusuri peran filsafat di dalam desain dan mengetahui sejauh mana dampaknya terhadap keputusan desain ?
.
Salah satu contoh proyek RAW Architecture, Begitu masuk ke rumah Harris dan Tiffany, yang menarik, keduanya memiliki limitasi. Yaitu renovasi rumah dengan budget terbatas, tetapi sense of art nya luar biasa. Seperti Tiffany, orangnya sangat artistik, Harris sangat rasional. Di dalam pikiran keduanya ada sebuah visi-misi. Pencampurannya menimbulkan brief yang khusus. Konsep desain muncul menggunakan struktur eksisting (ruins) dan teknik injeksi sebuah kolom-balok beton didalam struktur yang lama, bangunan itu seakan-akan dikangkangi oleh struktur yang baru dengan memberikan jalan cahaya. Itu menjadi hal yang inovatif di dalam perencanaan arsitektur.
.
Kemudian perkawinan begitu banyak elemen desain akan menimbulkan ledakan. Itulah Supernova, ledakan kebebasan.
.
Kebebasan = keterbatasan + kemampuan
.
Filsafat adalah belajar tentang kebebasan berpikir, bagaimana merangkai kebebasan dari kemampuan dan keterbatasan sumber daya yang dimiliki. Dan titik terpenting di dalam sebuah lompatan arsitektural adalah bagaimana merangkai banyaknya variasi elemen dan memproduksi banyaknya varietas karya arsitektur. Untuk merangkainya diperlukan kerja kolaborasi, jadi peran (aksi-reaksi) filsafat di dalam desain sangatlah penting dan dahsyat.
.
Ia berperan untuk menyadarkan “Hei desainer, kamu tidak sendirian ! Bangun dan Ledakkan Supernovamu”

Longlisted Dezeen Award 2022 – Emerging Architecture Studio

Longlisted Dezeen Award 2022 – Emergings Architecture Studio
.
We are humble wanna say, Thank you @dezeen .
.
We got an email about good news for the RAW Architecture studio. “From over 5,400 entries from 90 countries to Dezeen Awards this year, your studio is one of 29 studios that are in the running to win an award later this year in the studio categories.”
.
We gather in the courtyard to discuss and appreciate others. This is a message from me to one another as hope and a reflection of our journey process, with the hope of building a culture of a studio with dialogue. We started from a simple garage, to move to another challenge The Guild and Guha and here we are, still progressing and trying our best to serve our client.
.
Professional architects have a basic task, which is praxis, to approach the reaction action between design methods and reflection on those methods. This is called praxis. Like playing the gamelan on the notes of piano keys. This practice operates on the basis of the concept of harmony. It means a state of freedom from prejudice and ego, which are used to acquire (paradoxically) totality.
.
Hopefully, the good wishes of the studio and spirit can be maintained and realized. Things that should be improved can be improved, and harmony needs to be practiced to become a good “bridge” between architecture and nature.
.
Greatfull to joint submission with other great architects like @ad9architects , @anarchitect_co , @archiworkshop_official , Atelier Apeiron, Atelier cnS, @atelier_xi , @buro_ziyu_zhuang , @carlesenrichstudio , @commonaccounts , @dechelette.architecture , @doetsukaritects_, @invisible_studio , @leckiestudio , @loadermonteith , @maneakella , @mudaarchitects , @nomos.architects , @bornsteinlyckefors , @peterpichler_architecture , @tagatelierdgambleite_architecture, @p.o.ar , @ruffarchitects , @studio__susanne_brorson , @tagatelierdgambleite

Irviananda Adenia – Universitas Pembangunan Jaya

Hello everyone! My name is Irviananda Adenia, but everyone calls me Nanda. I am a fourth year student from Universitas Pembangunan Jaya, Bintaro, South Tangerang. As an architecture student, I am always seeking opportunities and challenges that can improve myself more, so I tried to apply for an internship at Realrich Architecture Workshop for the past three months. I do believe that RAW Architecture can provide a supportive environment to experience what I have learned in college, and joining as an intern at RAW turned out beyond all my expectations.

I can say that the past 3 months, from 6th June – 26th August 2022, were totally an incredible moment in my life. The first time I entered Guha, the atmosphere was unreal. It feels like it gives me comfort, spirit, and warmth, but also clueless and full of fear inside mine. But, that feeling of confusion disappeared immediately when I met the whole RAW team who were very humble and welcomed me happily. In just a few seconds, I can already conclude that RAW studio is full of amazing and passionate people.

As an intern, I learned a lot about the architecture world, either focusing on design or building. All designers here transfer their knowledge and perspectives on almost everything, how to develop a building concept, expertise in operating software, solving a problem in many projects, coordinating and contributing with each other, making details for construction needs, and also a professional attitude as a worker. They also remind me that architecture is not only about buildings, but also about feelings, belief, passion, and the story behind it. Not only in the scope of architecture, but I also got to know various stories and experiences about life, work, college, and education, which makes me think more to take the next step to the important moments ahead.

Thank you, Kak Rich, not only for giving me the opportunity to process here but also for teaching me many things about the community that we need to know earlier. The stories behind his experience have made me think about the important steps I must take to continue my life and education, both inside and outside the world of architecture. Thank you to all designer team, Kak Timbul, Kak Pandu, Kak Alim, Kak Riyan, Kak Tyo, Kak Rico, Kak Haykal, Kak Putra, Teh Al, Kak Gaby, Kak Melisa, Kak Kirana, Kak Audy, Kak Vyan, Ci Mei, Kak Fina, Kak Sofi, and Kak Khafyd, for giving me an appreciation, affection, and wonderful mentorship experience. Thank you for always making me laugh and making me more grateful every day. My internship friends, Zyadi, Akmal, Ryan, Damas, Manuel, Devi, and Janice, it was really nice to know you guys. Thank you for being such great friends and helping me in almost everything in Guha. I also want to say thank you to Kakak-Kakah OMAH, Bibi, and other RAW teams, for being humble and friendly to me. Once again, my life as an intern at RAW was beyond all my expectations. With all the new project work, knowledge, people, experiences, laughter, and great memories, three months feels very short. Thank you, thank you. Hopefully, we can meet again in my other favorite chapter of life.

Damas Dwinito Pradipta – Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB)

Hi there! My name is Damas Dwinito Pradipta, but you can call me Damas. Currently, I’m studying architecture at Institut Teknologi Bandung. By the time I write this letter, I’m in the 7th semester of my study. During the last semester break, I applied to many architectural firms to do an internship program. RAW is one of the firms I applied to. I chose RAW to be on my application list because I think that RAW could give me much knowledge and experience, especially about detail and technical things.

After a long wait, finally, RAW accepted my application and gave me a chance to be an intern there. Honestly, at first, I don’t feel that delighted being accepted here because it was my last internship option. But, over time, after doing an internship here, I take all my words back.
RAW fulfills all my expectations, even beyond. In Guha, how we usually called the office, I learned everything about architecture practice. Here, all the architects transfer all the knowledge sincerely. They thought me everything about architecture practice hand to hand. I learned how
to be good at designing, understanding details, and enhancing visualization skills. More importantly, They broaden my perspective on architecture. I realized architecture is not only about designing things to be aesthetic. It’s all about integrity between multi-discipline. A great architect is those who are not only good at designing, but as well as communicating, and collaborating with other.

At last, I would like to thank Kak Rich to allow me to be part of this wonderful team. Thank you for being such a humble and warm person. Thanks to all the seniors there for giving me a great mentorship experience. The intern there is, inadvertently, also lively and fun. I am so glad to have them as peers. For the past 2 months, for me, Guha is not my workplace. It is a place for nurturing. I feel grateful that RAW could be part of my professional journey. I wish you all the best things to happen in your life. I hope we could meet again someday!

Warm regards,
Damas Dwinito Pradipta

Bedah Buku – Urban Design: The Indonesian Experience

Conclusion:

Apa yang sebenarnya menjadi wacana ?

Dengan mengangkat judul “Urban Design, The Indonesia Experience” buku ini berisi pengalaman PSUD di dalam berpraktik di Indonesia dengan formal.

Secara urutan penulisan berusaha menjelaskan definisi kota secara umum melalui berbagai sumber, lalu menumbuhkan kesadaran kepada pembaca akan pentingnya perancangan kota yang sarat akan 3 tensi : PRODUCT, CONTEXT : INDONESIAN EXPERIENCE, URBAN DESIGN QUALITY

Kemudian dijelaskan definisi rancang kota dari sudut pandang PSUD dan elemen-elemen yang ada pada rancang kota. Penulisan ini mengarah pada penjabaran yang anatomis dan formal.

Pembahasan faktor-faktor yang mempengaruhi konteks sebuah kota di Indonesia, dari sejarah, geografi, masyarakat dan peraturan dibahas secara umum (spesifik ke kota Jakarta), belum menjelaskan hibrida kota-desa yang ada di Indonesia sebagai refleksi sejarah kota Indonesia dari sosial politik – sosial ekonomi – sosial otonomi budaya.

Pembahasan proyek-proyek yang dikerjakan oleh PSUD digambarkan berdasarkan sudut panda desainer belum sampai pada sudut pandang pengguna, aspek penilaian dalam proses analisis PSUD terhadap suatu konteks belum didetailkan.

Pembahasan proyek perancangan kota yang dikerjakan oleh PSUD disampaikan dengan sudut pandang perancang dan belum mewakili sudut pandang pengguna secara umum. Kemudian pada proses analisisnya PSUD memberi penjelasan yang tergolong singkat terkait aspek pertimbangan dalam setiap konteks perancangan kota. Keberadaan indikasi penangganan rancang kota yang disampaikan pada awal bab membantu proses analisis, namun proses klasifikasi setiap proyek dan penangganannya belum disampaikan.

Pembahasan terkait proyek ini akan menjadi lebih informatif jika berbagai aspek yang berkaitan dengan perancangan kota seperti situasi Sosial, Ekonomi, Budaya, dan Politik, serta kondisi terkini sebelum dan sesudah perancangan kota disampaikan dengan lebih dalam. Sehingga peran urban design dapat dipahami oleh pembaca.

Pada Bab Refleksi, terlihat bagaimana intensi buku masih pada tahap pengenalan urban desain kepada publik. Terlihat pula perjalanan urban design di Indonesia masih sangat muda, terasa bagaimana para desainer sudah memahami perlunya pemahaman terkait karakter DNA Indonesia, tetapi masih terasa kebingungan rumusan DNAnya seperti apa. Pelibatan ahli-ahli dari bidang lain dalam penyusunan teori mungkin dapat membantu merumuskan hal tersebut sebagai batu pijakan. Buku ini adalah pijakan pertama, jadi yang pertama pasti yang terbaik karena sampai saat ini belum ada yang kedua. Dan lebih penting untuk memulai daripada tidak mulai – mulai, kemudian memrefleksikan kembali untuk menjadi jembatan dari masa lalu ke masa depan.

Evolusi Desain Pasca Covid

Evolusi Desain Pasca Covid

Pandemi memberikan kejutan di dalam kemanusiaan kita semua termasuk dampaknya terhadap arsitektur. Arsitektur dituntut lebih peka dalam merespon standar-standar kesehatan. Hal ini sudah dipikirkan sebelumnya oleh beberapa arsitek dari 100 tahun yang lalu ataupun dari Era-Era Primitif sebelumnya.

9 tahun sesudah Pandemi spanish flu (1918) ataupun Tubercolosis, Open air school yang di design oleh Duiker and Bijvoet di tahun 1927 di Amsterdam berusaha untuk menguliti arsitektur sampai tulang-tulangnya( skeletal) yang membebaskan diri dari ornamen di mana perencanaan berbasis pada fleksibelitas ruang, kejujuran ekpos struktur keterbukaan udara dan cahaya juga bagaimana efisiensi terhadap sistem pemipaan Elektrikal dan plambing yang terpusat di central core. Pembebasan desain seperti ini menjadi penting karena seperti yang kita lihat di dalam arsitektur Open Air School ada fase di mana arsitektur diperjuangkan sampai elemen yang Esensial.

Dua tahun kemudian Alvar Aalto mendesain Rumah sakit Paimio menggunakan bentuk Lengkung dengan jendela panoramik yang bisa memberikan perasaan tanpa batas melihat ke hutan pinus yang ada di sekeliling rumah sakit. Lalu, Ia mendesain furniture, gagang, wastafel dengan memperhitungkan bahwa pengguna tidak perlu menyentuh dengan pergelangan.

Paimio dan Open Air School adalah arsitektur yang firmisanal yang merupakan definisi arsitektur yang stabil tetap dan memiliki Ketahanan terhadap berbagai macam hal termasuk materialitas dan teknologi bangunan yang establish. Di sinilah industri akan memainkan peran besar dan bagaimana Tegangan global dan lokal menjadi penting untuk perumusan metode desain. Ibaratnya belajar sampai negeri Cina negeri Italia berbagai macam benua inspirasi ada di mana mana tetapi jangan lupa belajar di mana tempatmu berada yaitu Indonesia tercinta.

Sedangkan kita juga memiliki arsitektur yang lStreetsanal yang merupakan arsitektur yang terus bergerak mengalir dan mengandalkan hal hal yang sangat mudah untuk dilakukan Yang bahkan bisa memakai material-material sekitar dan bisa jadi material sisa. Bisa jadi pendekatan kedua ini mendekonstruksi apa itu kepastian, dan mempertanyakan vernakularitas meskipun pada akhirnya hal tersebut akan bersifat tidak pasti atau eksperimental. Ibaratnya jangan lupa belajar untuk menjadi peka terhadap hal sekitar kita sekitar proyek sekitar- sekitar kita yang ini ini saja

Di tahun 2022 Melihat desain setelah Pandemi di mana hampir semua negara bergerak menuju normal. Disitulah dua buah kutub yang paradoksial itu untuk membebaskan evolusi desain setelah masa Pandemi sesuai optimalitas klien, dan konteks lokasi. Pertanyaan tentang what is need it what is true I what is necessary akan menjadi sangat penting. Sehingga metode design bisa diturunkan secara cepat tepat sekaligus berkelanjutan karena bumi ini juga punya sumber data yang terbatas.

Masa ini adalah masa yang sangat penting untuk bisa memerdekakan pikiran. Kemerdekaan tersebut menambah koleksi-koleksi arsitektur yang merupakan tahap selanjutnya yaitu arsitektur yang memerdekakan unik namun ada kesan familiaritas, Fungsional namun juga ada puisi. Kontradiksi itu yang membuat arsitektur kita kaya raya menuju masa depan.

Karya sebagai Ciri Khas Diri

Karya sebagai Ciri Khas Diri ?

Hari sabtu pagi saya diundang oleh program studi design interior universitas Gunadarma. Topik dari seminar kali ini adalah “Karya Sebagai Ciri Khas Diri”.

Saya bertanya-tanya tentang topik tersebut karena sebuah karya arsitektur sebenarnya juga merupakan hasil kolaborasi dengan begitu banyak pihak, bukan merupakan karya yang truly personal yang menonjolkan ciri khas diri sendiri saja.

Problematikanya, adalah setiap karya yang berdiri tidak pernah sesederhana yang terlihat. Di balik karya arsitektur ada klien yang memiliki keinginan dan kebutuhan, dari proyek residensial sampai komersial, ataupun proyek kultural sampai proyek sosial, setiap klien hadir dengan mimpi yang tidak terbatas. Disitulah arsitek perlu hadir untuk membuka sekat-sekat mimpi dari kliennya.

Dari situlah filosofi arsitektur, cara kerja, kebiasaan yang spesifik muncul dalam goresan tangan. Saya selalu meyakini arsitektur itu filosofis, hangat dan menyenangkan. Mencari klien tidak mudah, namun sekali filosofi dan sikap diri kita tepat, maka klien akan mengalir, kualitas kerja akan meningkat dan karya arsitektur akan menemukan ciri khasnya sendiri.

Permulaan mencari klien adalah titik awal, dan bagaimana mendesain supaya tepat yaitu bagaimana tetap puitis, dan juga efisien menjadi penting. Penting karena seluruh sumber daya bumi ini juga terbatas. Itulah pentingnya metode desain yang tepat. Transformasi tersebut kami lakukan di dalam RAW Architecture dimulai dari pengerjaan sayembara, kurasi, kompetisi internasional, relasi dengan klien, manajemen, sampai nongkrong di lapangan sembari menggali terus sisi kesempurnaan detail baut dan sambungan. Dibutuhkan “extra mile”.

Keseluruhan runtunan proses itu menghasilkan jawaban bagaimana mendapatkan “Karya sebagai Ciri Khas Diri” dan memiliki filosofi yang menggabungkan dunia sains dan intuisi. Dan hal ini “Indonesia banget” realitanya, dimana ada banyak lapisan, elemen, begitu disatukan membentuk kolase yang kaya di dalam arsitektur. “Broken and solid in one piece. “

Ryan Dwi Priyambodo – Universitas Sriwijaya (Unsri)

Halo! Perkenalkan, saya Ryan Dwi Priyambodo, mahasiswa tahun ke – 4 Universitas Sriwijaya. Memiliki kesempatan untuk kerja praktik di RAW merupakan pengalaman saya yang sangat berharga. Di hari pertama mengunjungi studio RAW, saya dan ketiga teman saya yang memang kebetulan berasal dari satu kampus, langsung disambut hangat oleh Realrich untuk diwawancarai mengenai latar belakang maupun alasan memilih RAW sebagai tempat magang. Realrich yang sempat menjadi pembicara materi di salah satu mata kuliah kampus saya dan juga tempat yang dikenal “bergengsi” dalam dunia arsitek pun menjadi salah satu alasan saya mengapa memilih tempat ini.

Di hari awal bekerja, sudah sangat terasa perbedaannya bagaimana menjadi seorang arsitek di dunia kampus dibandingkan dunia kerja aslinya, saya diajarkan betapa pentingnya ilmu komunikasi itu, dimana skill komunikasi adalah salah satu kekurangan yang saya sedang kembangkan di diri saya sendiri. Kak Andriyan atau kak Riyan, yang memang kebetulan memiliki nama panggilan yang sama dengan saya dan lucunya kami satu universitas yang sama juga, menjadi PIC saya dalam bekerja. Banyak hal yang saya pelajari kak Andriyan maupun kakak kakak yang bekerja di RAW, dari cara bagaimana mereka berkomunikasi, mengapresiasi maupun mengajari dalam hal bidang arsitektur. Tidak hanya dalam dunia pekerjaan, kakak di RAW juga sering mengajak saya untuk pergi ke wisata bangunan arsitektur di tiap minggunya, terutama dari kak Tyo yang memang memiliki hobby jalan jalan, hampir setiap minggunya memiliki ide tujuan ke tempat tertentu. Dari acara wisata ini, juga menjadikan pengalaman buat saya untuk mempelajari bagaimana bangunan arsitektur itu

Untuk kakak kakak yang telah mengajari saya banyak hal kak Rich, kak Andriyan, kak Timbul, kak Pandu, kak Tyo, kak Haykal, kak Melisa, kak Putra, kak Adzlin, kak Rico, kak Khafyd, kak Kirana, kak Audy, kak Fian, kak Mei Mei, kak Fina, kak Shofi, kak Lulu, kak Ufi, kak Gaby dan yang mungkin saya belum sebutkan, terima kasih telah membimbing dan mengajari saya banyak hal di RAW ini, serta teman magang saya, Akmal, Zyadi, Nanda, Damas, Devi, Manuel dan Janice yang telah menemani dan mengisi hari – hari saya di RAW.

Thank You everyone for welcoming me into RAW with a warm smile,
I hope to see you all again!

Muhammad Zyadi – Universitas Sriwijaya (Unsri)

Hello, My name is Muhammad Zyadi. I’m a 7th-semester architecture student from Sriwijaya University. I’ve been lucky to get the chance and be part of the Realrich Architecture Workshop (RAW) as an intern. Being in RAW itself is a dream come true for me. I never thought that I would come to Guha as an intern.

I’ve been interested and always curious about architecture, from semester to semester I’ve always put my best to learn about architecture. For me, my ambition is what keeps me pushing myself. But that is where the wrong thought started to show up. That ambition created ego and it affected how I’ve been designing in architecture. All I knew was just I wanted this and that and how it can be applicable to the design even though it’s still based on analysis.

During my Internship at RAW, I learned that it’s not about me, It’s about us the architect, the client, and the site and building itself. It’s not about what I as the architect want but it’s about how we create harmony between the architect, the client, the site, and the building. All the decisions that we make will affect how the user will experience the architecture and that is crucial. RAW changed my perspective on architecture, it taught me to see wider and further but also closer at the same time. I learned a lot about design, construction and its details, visualization, the attitude to work as a team, and how to communicate our thoughts in design.

Besides architecture, I feel grateful to be able to experience my first-time “work” experience in such a harmonic supportive work environment. I never expected to get this experience in an internship. The warmest smile people have given to me since day one, the story and laugh we shared in the pantry, foyer, studio, internship room, or outside Guha with “Tyo Tour and Travel” was unforgettable. During the last few days, I tried to capture the moment as much as possible because I know the time will surely end and the moment can’t be repeated.

The first time I heard “Realrich Architecture Workshop ” the thing that appeared in my mind was that it’s just a great architecture Firm. But now, every time I hear “Realrich Architecture Workshop” every beautiful moment with all the people there is a glimpse in a split second in my mind. RAW isn’t just a great architecture firm but also a place where I learned a lot of things about architecture, a place where I met a lot of people with beautiful souls and their own character, and a place where I feel joy and endless excitement to learn about architecture and interact with the people there. RAW with Guha as its office is a beautiful place but what is inside is way more beautiful. 

Thank you kak Rich for the opportunity and mentorship, thank you to everyone inside the studio, and omah for everything, I’m not sure that every single one of you constantly interacted with me but one thing I can be sure of is all of you are written in one of my favorite chapters of my life. Wishing you the best everywhere you go, you guys deserve good things in life.

Warmest regards,
Muhammad Zyadi

Muhammad Akmal – Universitas Sriwijaya (Unsri)

Hi everyone, my name is Muhammad Akmal, as of writing this I am a 21 years old uni student riding along life with a huge passion for architecture. The passion which I’ve been brewing since the first time I heard the term ‘architect’ when I was little. But speaking honestly here, for the most part, I was blind and basically second-guessing the meaning behind the term, I find myself chasing the title more than what’s being held by it. Realizing the problem, I had always tried to put myself in a different environment from time to time. this time I reached out to Realrich Architecture Workshop for an internship program and was fortunate enough to be accepted.


Throughout the short time I was there I was able to learn so much more than I could tell, for the first time I was taught to put more meaning behind architecture, to realize that architecture is a journey of my own, and to cherish every step I took along the way. The experience I had as an intern in RAW make me think more critically about the environment and people around me and foremost about myself and my daily life. RAW taught me the ability to see architecture in the most detailed way and as wide as I could at the same time, to consider any and everything that my mind can reach.


Throughout my time as an intern in RAW, my passion for architecture grows even more, and my thirst for knowledge along with it. I am very grateful to Kak Rich for giving me this opportunity and to teach me a lot of things about architecture, be it design, development, and also philosophical matters. And also, I would like to thank all my seniors there for taking the time out of their packed schedules to teach me about all sorts of things from architecture and software to other important things such as life lessons. Lastly, to my new RAW architecture family, I wish you the best of the best.

Best Regards,
Muhammad Akmal

Aryo Phramudhito – Institut Seni Indonesia Denpasar

Proses saya mengenal Omah Library mungkin tidak berbeda dengan kebanyakan manusia lain, melalui kelas, buku, dan perpustakaan uniknya. Saya pikir mengetahui eksistensinya sudah cukup bagi saya, ternyata satu situasi di akhir masa studi membuat saya memiliki cerita dengan Omah Library. Memutuskan untuk mengerjakan tugas akhir saya dengan bermagang di Omah Library cukup menjadi tantangan bagi saya, mahasiswa Desain Interior dari institusi seni yang jauh dari tempat ini. Riset, menulis, dan berpikir kritis bukan hal biasa bagi generasi saya. Namun entah, saya menikmati momen ketika menulis jurnal untuk tugas mingguan selama studi. Saya mengunjungi beberapa karya desain interior dan arsitektur yang jauh hanya untuk merasakan pengalaman seutuhnya, dan ingat ini untuk jurnal mingguan yang biasa. Mendapat keleluasaan untuk memutuskan memilih tempat bermagang, saya memberi kesempatan kepada diri saya sendiri untuk mencoba yang sudah saya ketahui tapi tidak pernah mendalaminya. Mengirimkan surat lamaran magang dan menunggu adalah perasaan terburuk tapi menyenangkan bagi saya. Mendapat kabar baik dan bisa segera memulai magang di Omah Library rasanya kabar terbaik pada saat itu.


17 minggu tepatnya saya di Omah Library. Pada beberapa minggu pertama cukup membuat saya bingung, mengerjakan hal yang pernah saya kerjakan namun dengan sudut yang berbeda. Terbiasa mengikuti ‘aturan’ dan diajak untuk lebih berekspresi. ‘Beyond’ kata kunci yang selalu saya gumamkan ketika tulisan saya ‘mentok’ dan menulis menjadi hal yang sempat saya takutkan. Namun beberapa waktu ini, ketika saya mulai beradaptasi dengan pola ‘bersenang-senang’ Omah Library dan bagaimana setiap manusia berperan di dalamnya, sangat membantu saya dalam menempatkan diri. Bertemu dengan Eric Dinardi, satu fotografer arsitektur yang saya sukai karyanya, mewawancarai para arsitek mumpuni yang saya bahkan tidak
bermimpi untuk dapat berbicara dengan Pak Gunawan Tjahjono, Pak Danang Priatmodjo, Yonav Partana, Patrisius Marvin, Bu Nelly dan Pak Deddy dari LABO. Dibandingkan dengan saya pada hari pertama ketika di Omah Library, saat ini tentu sangat berbeda. Saya hanya menikmati proses ‘bersenang-senang’ disini, bagaimana hal kecil dan biasa selalu dianggap dari satu hal yang besar. Bagaimana setiap ide dieksekusi bersama tanpa ekspektasi yang membebani, hanya ‘bersenang-senang’.

Terima kasih Omah Library untuk waktu dan ceritanya, untuk Kak Rich, Kak Ufi, Kak Nirma, Kak Lulu, Kak Farhan, Aul, dan Maria rekan magang meski hanya sebulan.

Best Regards,
Aryo Phramudhito

Evanjelicel Tamio Dimpudus – Universitas Pelita Harapan

Perkenalkan nama saya Evanjelicel Tamio Dimpudus, mahasiswa tahun keempat arsitektur Universitas Pelita Harapan. Secara pribadi saya kagum dan sudah mempelajari beberapa karya RAW baik melalui buku, publikasi online dan juga sosial media, terlebih ketika saya mengunjungi dan menikmati secara langsung The Guild dan sekolah Alfa Omega. Bagi saya belajar aritektur adalah tentang rasa penasaran dan pertanyaan; tentu ini sangat menyenangkan dan menantang, namun sudah saatnya tantangan itu tidak datang lagi dari sesuatu yang bersifat fiktif seperti soal di studio. Pemikiran ini muncul karena saya merasa sangat tidak memahami dunia arsitektur ketika bekerja dilapangan secara langsung. Saya sudah mengerjakan beberapa proyek terbangun, seperti rumah dan instalasi, namun saya merasa masih kurang profesional dalam menangani proyek-proyek tersebut. Disitu saya sadar bahwa arsitektur perlu dipelajari dari ahlinya; saya ingin mendapat tempat dan mentor yang tepat untuk meningkatkan kualitas dan profesionalitas diri serta arsitektur yang akan saya bangun kedepannya dan RAW Architecture adalah komunitas yang tepat untuk semua itu.”

“RAW Architecture terasa seperti sekolah bagi saya.
Saya rasa kesempatan belajar di RAW adalah pengalaman sensasional yang menunjang masa depan saya dalam berarsitektur. RAW itu cair bagaikan air; “You must be shapeless, formless, like water. When you pour water in a cup, it becomes the cup. When you pour water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle. When you pour water in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can drip and it can crash. Become like water my friend.” Begitu kata Bruce Lee. Bersama RAW selama 3 bulan saya merasa seperti berada di komunitas rohani, merasa berada di warung kopi, merasa berada di acara keluarga, merasa berada di lingkungan akademisi bahkan merasa berada di acara stand up comedy (dan masih banyak universe RAW yang belum terjelajahi). Sebuah komunitas yang cair dan kaya akan pengalaman, pelajaran dan kebersamaan. Tak lupa komunitas ini juga sangat terbuka bagi lingkungan sekitar; sore bisa bermain bersama anak-anak,dan jajan es juga telur gulung di dekat ring basket.Tak hanya manusianya, arsitektur Guha The Guild pun memberikan kenyamanan bagi lingkungan sekitar dengan micro climatenya.


Dear kak Realrich Sjarief, seorang yang jatuh cinta kepada arsitektur, seorang yang bahkan tujuan hidupnya adalah arsitektur, pertama-tama terimakasih. Saya sempat tepuk jidat dan mikir “Segitunya ya buat arsitektur”. Dan Ketika berpikir lagi sebenarnya jika saya adalah seorang arsitek, saya harus memiliki mindset seperti ini. Kak Rich juga sangat senang berbagi, dan Ketika weekly meeting di hari senin yang paling saya tunggu sebenarnya adalah sharing dari kak Rich. Saya sangat bersyukur pernah dibimbing oleh kak Rich.


Untuk kakak-kakak yang sudah menjadi mentor saya terutama Kopan (kak Pandu), kak Riyan dan kak Timbul, terimakasih atas rangkulan dan ilmu yang hangat. Kak Khafyd dan kak rico yang jadi temen ngobrol. Kak Tyo, bang Putra, kak Melisa, kak Adzlin, kak Vvyan, kak Mei, kak Fina, Sofi, bang Haykal, kak Kirana, kak Vivi,dan kak Satria juga mewarnai keadaan studio dan pengalaman saya bersama RAW terimakasih. Tentu tak lupa 2 manusia dari Petra yakni Gabi dan Angel sebagai magangers RAW kalian fantastis!. Juga kepada teman-teman dari OMAH tulisan kalian dapat merubah arsitektur Indonesia.


Akhir kata, bagi kon kawan yang membaca tulisan ini, orang-orang yang aku sebutin dan kagumi di atas adalah orang-orang yang sangat hebat. Sangat senang berada di sini dan menantikan apa yang akan RAW bawa ke dunia.

Best Regards,
Evanjelicel Tamio Dimpudus

Angel Gabriella Kusuma – Universitas Kristen Petra

Hello! I’m Angel, a fellow learner, and explorer who’s also currently studying architecture at Petra Christian University Surabaya. Was born and raised in Surabaya for 21 years. In my last year as an undergraduate student, I decided to do an internship program in RAW to expand my exploration, and get new experiences as well as new perspectives on architecture and life.

The 24th of November, 2021 is the day RAW offered me a chance to do the internship program which I had applied for 3 months before. I still remember the feeling of waiting and how excited I got when Kak Yudith contacted and offered me the internship program. To be honest, the journey to get to that day wasn’t easy, and I guess that’s what makes that day so special. Through this letter, I would like to express my gratitude to the RAW family, especially Kak Rich and Kak Yudith, for giving me a chance to learn, meet, and work with amazing people in RAW Studio.

These past 4 months, RAW hadn’t only become my workplace but also my home. To work in RAW, I had to leave Surabaya, the place where I grew up and live for 21 years. Surabaya was my comfort zone, but I am glad that I had decided to step out of it, even for only a few months. Within 4 months in RAW, I had learned and gained a lot of knowledge and experiences which gave me a whole new perspective on architecture, the world, and even life. I learned new things that can only be obtained through field experience. I learned that architecture, details, construction, craftsmanship, and communication are inseparable. But, the thing I am most grateful for is that I was never alone. Going through this big change and process of knowing architecture, myself, and life, I was lucky enough to experience it with the best people in the world:) RAW has taught me that architecture is also about being part of a community and family. I believe that creating amazing architecture, also takes amazing teamwork and community.

During my internship, every once in a while, Kak Rich brought up this question “what is our purpose in life?”. This got me thinking, “what do I want in life?”, “where am I heading to?”, “is architecture part of my purpose in life?”. I have been trying to find the answer to these questions, until this one moment. I remember when my mentor had to leave and continue her own journey outside RAW. Kak Rich had mentioned that she had “touched” everyone with her presence and her relationship with others. At that moment, I thought, how beautiful it is? If one is able to touch someone with their presence. That thought made me reflect on myself. I guess for now I decided that my purpose is to be able to touch people with everything that I do, whether through my works in architecture or even through my actions towards others. Therefore, I am also thankful to Kak Rich, for bringing up questions that we were all afraid to ask ourselves.

4 months had passed so quickly. For all the knowledge, experience, wisdom, laughter, and memories, I thank everyone. No words can’t describe how grateful I am to spend the last 4 months in this new home.
Thank You Kak Rich for being such a humble person and for creating a supportive environment in RAW,
Thank You everyone for welcoming me into RAW with a warm smile,
I hope to see you all again!

Best Regards,
Angel Gabriella Kusuma

Inside All 10 Houses From Season 2 of Apple’s Design Docuseries

Guha is in the review in series of Apple Tv.

Cited from website : “The fantastical Indonesia home of Realrich Sjarief is defined from the exterior by its broad circular windows and draping plants, but inside, it’s much harder to define. Gohu means cave, and indeed the concrete structure feels like a place for discovery just like a cave. Age-old materials like bamboo are combined with steel and plastic to create a truly unique, 21st-century building.”

Guha is in Apple TV +

Yesterday we watched a Guha movie on apple Tv, which was filmed by A24 the Apple TV team and edited and worked in a way I never expected. The film is directed by Sami Khan, and produced by dream team : Collin Urcutt, Nick Stern, Courtney Crock, Joe Yaggi, Patrick, Charlie Balsch, Maya Lubis, Lisa Sanusi, David Hutama, Laurensia, Miraclerich, Heaverrich, craftsmen Guha’s team, RAW Architecture studio, Omah and all of the big team in this movie.

We cried every seeing the lost our missing daughter and laughed every seeing Laurensia, Miraclerich and Heavenrich. We never expected the result to touch our heart, it’s gift to Guha.

.

Even they composed special music for the show. I discussed with Cali, to know their creativity to interpret Guha in their own way. “Thank you Realrich! initially we did some extensive research on traditional Indonesian instruments like Gamelan and Angklung and was trying to do a modern twist with them; throughout the creative process we developed quite a lot more than that, mainly drawing inspirations from your concept as an architect actually! The exciting and adventurous spirit to access every doors, blending Western Europe technology but make it work in our situation…; there was one part where you mentioned the process of bending the metal over and over again to make circle shapes (hope I remembered correctly), we found layering the music one by one, over and over (just like the process) works really well with the scene! It grew to be quite philosophical rather than just painting the right colors, if that make sense! And we had a lot of help and guidance from Collin and the team 😊
I hate to explain music too much hahah so really hope you and your family enjoy the music when the episode airs!” This humbled us with such beautiful process comes beautiful piece of music titled “Bamboo Fantasia”.


As an architects, we tried to control, experiment with, and try to fit into balance things. But this movie worked beyond the control as I can’t control of some of the aspect in my life with Laurensia. As a subject, we was prone to be able to open the question in my mind such as how can they touch my heart when we saw this movie? They made us cry and sad in one of the scenes and made me laugh and hold Laurensia’s hand, looking at her happy eyes. This movie is magical and touching with a simple script, but the technical and preparation aspects are not easy.


.
Collin and Nick spent much time discussing and talking about Guha and our family activities. Then, Sami joined as director, and then I felt the questions go more profound than before. Suddenly It touched our weakness which is Losing our daughter. That situation made me shut down my emotion over the years. I never expected that spot hits me hard, and it isn’t easy to talk about it. We cried in the session, we learned that opening myself helps to heal myself.
.
In the next session in the zoom meeting, they met with Laurensia. They needed to meet Laurensia because Laurensia was paranoid about the pandemic, and it was not easy to get Laurensia’s approval. She once said, “honey, this guy is going to make good on you. They have prepared to discuss and make things proper.”
.
She thought that it was only me who would be in the movie, but soon as she understood that her, Miracle, and Heaven were needed on the set, she changed to be a different person that is more open. This moment is a process of us opening ourselves to the fear of pandemic and the fear of us fanning ourselves. One zoom meeting sometimes takes 1-3 hours, and several times were meeting. Then, the day finally came when the Apple TV + team came to Indonesia. Sami, Courtney, and Collin led the team in collaboration with Joe, Patrick, and the team. What interests me is the perfection involved; they need to take the shots several times over and over at a different angle. The heavy tools consist of cranes, drones, lenses, and big cameras. Sami told me that the devices used to take Verite, which means the art or technique of filming something (such as a motion picture) to convey candid realism, and it’s a beautiful shot tested from several angles. Working on something over and over is like craftmanship. It takes enormous energy for one scene to take, but they did hundreds of images in weeks. One time I heard Patrick say,

Suddenly It touched my weakness which is Losing our daughter. That situation made me shut down my emotion over the years. I never expected that spot hits me hard, and it isn’t easy to talk about it. I remember I cried in the session. I learned that opening myself helps to heal myself.

“Sami, I can’t take it anymore!” I saw Sami, Collin, and Courtney. They focus on the story, logistics, and details because their time to take shots is limited. The camera is heavy for sure.

The next interesting one is spontaneity, they encourage us, me Laurensia, and all of the people on set to be spontaneous like doing our daily activities. Being spontaneous is about showing the back and front stage as it is. It’s an open-up process. There was one line I liked when Laurensia noted that we are connected with gossip in Indonesia when we discussed the city that is so detached.

Spontaneity contested us, to be honest with me, and it helps us appreciate memories with my relation, especially with David Hutama, who interpreted and positioned me. Sami said one time, “Realrich have you heard David saying? Are you getting along with him usually ?” I think I have not met David for such a long time, 3-to 4 years. I remember I met and discussed with David when founding Omah Library.

I remember I met and discussed with David when founding Omah Library.


.
The session of Courtney directing Miracle is memorable, and It’s a Miracle’s favorite. Courtney helps to control Miracle without him even realizing he is on set. He always asked if he would meet aunty Courtney because he explored new things. It’s the same with Laurensia And Heaven, some images were sent to me by a team together as memories, and I genuinely love them because of their smile. I think about them all Of the time. Family is my priority.
.
During the interview, I saw Collin keep writing. One time, Sami asked questions, and Collin reviewed the answer and twisted it to another question for me to answer more clearly. He scrutinized all of the script, dubbing, and technical aspects over and over. They never told me that some of them were the producer, the director, and the scriptwriter. They just worked like a team that had been working for ages. Once, Collin said, “at the end of this release, we are going to be family,” which summarizes my proposition about ideas for answering the questions they prepared. So the situation, ecosystem in the making helps to inspire on site.
.
Then, the day after we went to Alfa Omega school, I felt connected with my childhood when I heard that Lisa spoke, always bringing a vision to help young people. She wanted to get independence from the education system. For young ones, I learned to be as simple as I could. Being honest is an act of humanity. That school is a reminder of how architecture can touch humanity, and we as an architect still have many things to learn.

That school is a reminder of how architecture can touch humanity, and we as an architect still have many things to learn.


.
The Apple team traveled quite much, and I saw them quite exhausted. I asked Pak Joe whether this is normal For production to have a very intense camera. He said that it is only beginning. After this, there will be times for editing, and it will take months to finish. Editing takes time. I remember when collin wrote something, my mind came when I wrote the manuscript of architecture as an escape from my daily routines. Literacy for them is crucial to get the sequence in the movie. It’s like an architecture experience based on script: program, material, wisdom.
.
Ultimately, it takes the second trip with bu Maya and Charlie to add more verite video and make the shots even more beautiful. This process made me realize that we need to open myself up in this life. Wherever we are currently struggling, the energy around architects has its S curve, which means there is a steep learning phase associated with short time and intensive training, and then enjoying the learning outcomes until the graph decreases again. The key for a person to continue growing is getting the next S curve from a declining chart. It’s a process to incline up likewise from one angle to another to bring continuous improvement—this improvement leaps the system from the life around architects. In reflecting on that S curve break, there is a moment of celebration of the closeness, personal, and network that makeup life.

This Film made by the production, director and all of the amazing team featured in Apple Tv shows multiple S curves in a short time, and on every upside of the curve, there will be a scene of Miracle smiling and running. That opens up self to treat architecture and its people like a family through tears in heaven. A hope to bring miracles and heaven to others through architecture. Big Thank you to all of you below, you meant so much to my heart and Laurensia as family. Look at the big team below !

Happy birthday my dear, most beautiful wife in the world. laurensia Yudith

Today my wife is having her birthday. Birthday is a big L(love) day of rebirth and reflection on our lives. A soulmate fulfills a purpose in life with kindness, compassion, and love. Thirty-two years ago, when I moved to Jakarta with my family when I was ten years old, we sat at the same benches in the elementary classroom. We have been a usual friend to the best friends since that time. Best friends are never apart, maybe in the distance but never by heart.”

We have been a usual friend to the best friends since that time. Best friends are never apart, maybe in the distance but never by heart.”


I said “I love you” for the first time 14 years ago, and I found my soulmate. When Laurensia agreed to pre-wed in our home, garage office, and neighborhood to stay modest, we learned that this experience brings creativity beyond our limitations. Giving calm and humble life brings more happiness than success with restlessness.
.
Every day, She arranged our family daily life in our family life the pattern so I could have a proper purpose, rest appropriately, and have an excellent work phase. She is the fundamental principle of my life. She can smell when we need to limit our lives, stay safe, and be secured even in Covid.
.
She is the angel, a blessing from God to our family. She is the mother of two cute sons, Miracle and Heaven. They can’t be far from her, and me as well. She hears and speaks softly and touches my heart gently behind all imperfections. Thank you for your love, dear Laurensia. Thank you, God, Who has given us magnificent love, Love You to the Moon, Earth, Pluto, and Nebula.

Motivation

“I’m very interested and excited to learn about building-user-environmental relationship issues, and I’m aware that this firm is dedicated in the locality on defining architecture in harmony.”

.

Dear Mr. Realrich Sjarief,


Following four years of college at Diponegoro University’s Architecture Department, two months of internship at RAW Architecture in 2020, and participation in numerous architectural competitions and activities, it is clear to me that architecture is not only about building, but also about the social life that surrounds it, which can provide reciprocal relationships. This thought inspired me to

apply for the position of associate architect at RAW Architecture, which is well-known for his locality- based design approach.

When you gave a public lecture at my college in 2018, I was a newcomer to architecture and your words inspired me. You emphasized that using local materials in buildings can provide a much stronger positive relationship with its surrounding environment, which includes social life. Then, in college, I learned about the impact of design failure on social life. For example, the Pruitt Igoe complex in St. Louis, Missouri. There is a mismatch between initial expectations and the reality of its social life impact. The building was then demolished, leaving behind so many of the social issues. This problem
was very intriguing and exciting to me, and it challenges me to improve my ability to solve similar problems in the future.

I am convinced that there is no better place for me to pursue my architectural ambitions than RAW Architecture. I consider it a vibrant experience to have the opportunity to learn more from one of
Indonesia’s best architecture firms that focuses on locality to define architecture. In “Wastu Citra”, Y.B. Mangunwijaya explained that the locality makes human values so meaningful as users of architectural
works. Contextually, locality will increase harmony between buildings, users, and the surrounding environment. As a result, the excellent atmosphere will improve, as will the quality of social life in the
surrounding area. So I believe that working at RAW Architecture will provide me with more insight, bringing me one step closer to my goal of becoming an architect who can help my surroundings live
better lives through my work.

A month ago, my team and I were on the judging panel for a competition, where we were a top five finalist with our conceptual design for a Transit Hub in Surabaya. One of our design concepts is to
spread the intervention regionally, allowing for more social activity to thrive with it. Our jurors, Mr. Andra Matin and Mr. Achmad Noerzaman, told us proudly that we’d created something special. They
stated that as architects, we must base our designs on contextual harmony so that they can provide social value in community culture over time. With this experience, as well as my practice as an intern here,

I am confident that I will be able to contribute to RAW Architecture’s growth as a restless spirit.

Biografi :

saya Sofiana Estiningtyas. Saya berposisi sebagai internship di RAW dengan periode waktu 3 bulan. Saya berasal dari Yogyakarta dan merupakan alumni UII angkatan 17. Pada kolom ini saya akan memulai kalimat pembuka saya dengan puji dan syukur yang saya panjatkan tiada habisnya karena telah diberi kesempatan untuk bertumbuh dan berkembang di RAW bersama orang-orang yang luar biasa di dalamnya. RAW membentuk saya menjadi pribadi yang lebih terbuka dengan berbagai perbedaan, cara berpikir, argumentasi design, menchallange saya untuk belajar dan beradaptasi dengan hal-hal baru, dan juga penyelesaian permasalahan dengan cara-cara yang tidak biasa. Kebahagiaan saya di RAW didukung oleh lingkungan yang supportif, teman-teman yang asik dan murah hati untuk berbagi insight baru, dan juga pimpinan yang selalu membimbing kami dan apresiatif terhadap apa-apa yang kami kerjakan di kantor, yaitu Kak Realrich. Saya mengakui bahwa untuk beradaptasi di RAW merupakan hal yang cukup sulit bagi saya. Setiap pekerjaan di kantor ini dilakukan dengan serba cepat, project masuk yang begitu banyak membuat load pekerjaan yang cukup berat untuk setiap orangnya. Namun, RAW membukakan mata dan pikiran saya bahwa arsitek tidak hanya sekedar seorang arsitek. Kami diharuskan memiliki wawasan multidiscipline untuk menyelesaikan pekerjaan yang ditugaskan. Design-konstruksi, estetika-kekuatan, bentuk-fungsi, imajinasi-realitas, mulai bisa saya pahami kongruensinya ketika saya masuk ke RAW. Salah satu visi dan misi hidup yang saya pegang adalah “Kerjakanlah sesuatu, yang ketika itu bekerja itu bermanfaat dan menciptakan kebahagian saya dan orang lain.”. Di RAW, saya melihat bahwa berarsitektur merupakan salah satu cara untuk mencapai kebahagiaan-kebahagiaan itu. Kebahagiaan saya dan orang lain. Terimakasih RAW atas pembelajaran dan pengalaman bernilai yang diberikan untuk saya. Terimakasih untuk Kak Rich dan Kak Yudith yang telah memberi saya kesempatan menjadi bagian kecil dari keluarga ini. May all life’s passing seasons bring the best to you and yours ♡

40th Ulang Tahun kak Realrich

Saat bekerja di RAW hal yang paling banyak didapatkan adalah atitude dalam mengerjakan sebuah project. Bagaimana mengerjakan project untuk membuat semua sempurna dan menghadapi permasalah design atau kontruksi dengan menyelami ke akar permasalahan. Mungkin yang perlu dikembangkan bagaimana designer dapat didelegasikan untuk memegang klien bila sudah mampu, bila belum mampu designer bisa ikut terlibat dalam meeting-meeting dengan klien agar designer dapat memahami kondisi project yang berdampak langsung dengan design maupun konstruksi. Karena isu penyampaian design ke klien dan isu personal klien mungkin kadang designer tidak memahami. Keep up RAW!!

Is Architecture Part of Economy ?

Saya diundang ke dalam webinar yang diadakan oleh Universitas Negeri Semarang untuk membicarakan kaitan arsitektur dengan ekonomi.

Mengkritisi Kebutuhan Manusia yang Tanpa Batas dan Tanpa Visi

Manusia selalu memiliki keinginan tanpa batas, namun sayangnya SDM (Sumber Daya Manusia) dan SDA (Sumber Daya Alam) tidak tersebar secara merata, yang menyebabkan munculnya masalah kesenjangan di dalam pemenuhan kebutuhan manusia. SDM dan didalam arsitektur adalah aktornya seperti arsitek, klien, dsb.

Sedangkan SDA adalah material bangunan, mesin dsb. Arsitektur juga sangat dipengaruhi oleh krisis yang terjadi. Setelah adanya krisis, potensi pembangunan akan muncul dan bertumbuh beriringan dengan pertumbuhan SDM dan SDA yang ada. Oleh karena itu kesadaran bahwa ekonomi terkait erat dengan arsitektur menjadi penting.

Apa saja Ilmu ekonomi yang terkait arsitektur?

Di dalam arsitektur ekonomi terkait dengan brief klien dan tipologi proyek dan klien. Ada dua buah kutub tipe proyek,

yang pertama proyek yang sifatnya Eksistensial, personal, dekat klien (privat), ataupun memiliki misi khusus – Tipologi Residential, dan bangunan khusus seperti gereja, fasilitas publik, dsb.

Kutub kedua sifatnya proyek Komersial, dimana arsitektur terkait dengan cost of investment dan return of investment. Dimana, arsitektur harus mampu memperhitungkan bahwa bangunan yang di desainnya perlu untuk laku (memiliki bisnis plan) secara komersial. Dimana ada kontrol tentang biaya di dalamnya.

ETALASE 4.0 2022
Architecture, Economy and Space.

WEBINAR NASIONAL 1

Team - Reflection Letter

Angel Gabriella Kusuma – Universitas Kristen Petra

I’m Angel, a fellow learner and explorer who’s also currently studying architecture in Petra Christian University Surabaya. Was born and raised in Surabaya for 21 years. In my last year as an undergraduate student, I’ve decided to do an internship program in RAW to expand my exploration, get new experiences as well as new perspectives towards architecture and life.

The 24th of November, 2021 is the day RAW offered me a chance to do the internship program which I had applied 3 months before. I still remember the feeling of waiting and how excited I got when Kak Yudith contacted and offered me the internship program. To be honest, the journey to get to that day wasn’t easy, and I guess that’s what makes that day so special. Through this letter, I would like to express my gratitude towards the RAW family, especially Kak Rich and Kak Yudith, for giving me a chance to learn, meet, and work with amazing people in RAW Studio.

These past 4 months, RAW hadn’t only become my workplace but also my home. To work in RAW, I had to leave Surabaya, the place where I grew up and live for 21 years. Surabaya was my comfort zone, but I am glad that I had decided to step out of it, even for only a few months. Within 4 months in RAW, I had learnt and gained a lot of knowledge and experiences which gave me a whole new perspective towards architecture, world, and even life. I had learnt new things that can only be obtained through the field experience. I learnt that architecture, details, construction, craftsmanship, and communication are inseparable. But, the thing I am most grateful for is that I was never alone. Going through this big change and process of knowing architecture, myself, and life, I was lucky enough to experience it with the best people in the world:)

RAW has taught me that architecture is also about being part of a community and family. I believe that to create amazing architecture, it also takes amazing teamwork and community. During my internship, every once in a while, Kak Rich brought up this question about “what is our purpose in life?”. This got me thinking, “what do I want in life?”, “where am I heading to?”, “is architecture part of my purpose in life?”. I have been trying to find the answer to these questions, until this one moment.

I remember when my mentor had to leave and continue her own journey outside RAW. Kak Rich had mentioned that she had “touched” everyone with her presence and her relationship with others. At that moment, I thought, how beautiful it is? If one is able to touch someone with their presence. That thought had made me reflect on myself. I guess for now I decided that my purpose is to be able to touch people with everything that I do, whether through my works in architecture, or even through my actions towards others.

Therefore, I am also thankful to Kak Rich, for bringing up questions that we were all afraid to ask ourselves. 4 months had passed so quickly. For all the knowledge, experience, wisdom, laughter and memories, I thank everyone. No words can’t describe how grateful I am to spend the last 4 months in this new home. Thank You Kak Rich for being such a humble person and for creating a supportive environment in RAW, Thank You everyone for welcoming me into RAW with a warm smile, I hope to see you all again!

Best Regards,

Tracing The Dots

See the video in facebook

Taylor University graduates invited me to share experience with dots in Realrich Architecture Workshop (RAW Architecture). I thought this presentation would be about not myself but the students and how they can trace their dots looking at the sharing. So I planned my presentation is about the unseen pathway and how to reconcile yourself if you face fear, failure, success, and further trauma. This presentation was the first time I tried to reconcile my experience, things that made me come back to Indonesia after working in London and studying in Sydney. My reason was my loved one, the willingness to make a family, and sacrifice by calculating the pros and cons. 1st that, obtaining an architect’s license for my with my b arch degree was not possible, I needed to extend my studies, took three different tests, and it cost five digits GBP. And it’s crossed with my ego. In the end, we discussed that Laurensia’s dentist license not be sacrificed. I can be more robust by practicing in Indonesia by winning competitions, and having a few projects run by developers and close relatives.

For me, architecture is very personal, which creates vital radiance to others as echoes, and the echoes represent other voices that might support and distract. The pathway to reconciling our own creates a more vital radiance that leads to the reality of our dream. By then, to build more vital radiance, I need to improve my resiliency by experiencing and maintaining my passion.

Ee Von tried to engage in discussions, which make deep talk in session and project the reality in our relationship with the client, not by saying yes or no, but by asking more profound questions that make me appreciate the options and ask the relevancy of the questions. In our journey in 2014, as a family, we got helped by Dhisti and Mirza as clients. They introduced some of the diagnoses and anticipation for my wife. By having that, Miracle was born 1.5 years after, and Heaven was born in 2020.

Life is unimaginable and an unexplored forest when I look back 20 years ago. Like many students will experience, but if I imagine now, I think everyone has their orbit and their rotation to get their purpose, contributing to others. My family is getting bigger, from Laurensia to Miracle, to Heaven, reconcile with my father, mother, brother and sisters, designers, librarians, colleagues, students, and clients. I am fulfilled and grateful for all of the blessings.

Practicing Design Philosophy

I was invited by Altrerosje Asri to share some how to practice philosophy in architecture. There are several questions that we can discuss in the class such as : What is the current crisis in architecture students and academia, and practitioners ? What is the problem ? Is there any correlation to understanding philosophy ?

I tried to digest this over and over in my practice, there are several possibilities in this hybrid world, digital which is in hyper speed and our offline world which is slow pace like our heart beat. Maybe the question of what your purpose is , become quite fundamental to reorient ourselves in both world.

The session includes the discussion with students in the middle of presentation. My presentation is quite fortunate to be able to see the lecturers : Altre, Joyce, and Wira stood back and let the students explored their purposes. I felt that everybody was rough, including my self, and we are finding ourselves sharpen our thought, words, and feeling to be better person.

After the session I felt that this kind of sharing and discussion including presentation is more fulfilling as it provides not only one way or top – down, but allowing guidance and unpredictable sequence for the students to tell their own story.

At the end, what’s the meaning of our life ?

For myself, it’s the contribution for our memories, not sentimental, but building a deeper conversations that brings memories.

.

My tears drop and I felt touch of heaven.

Project 18 – Otten Coffee Bandung

00-Otten Coffee Bandung
.
Otten Coffee bertempat di jalan pasir Kaliki Bandung, daerah pusat kuliner yang sudah sejak lama ada di Bandung. Otten Coffee ingin mengembangkan konsep dimana pengunjung mendapatkan pengalaman menikmati kopi, ruang pameran, gudang, kantor, dan kemungkinan pengembangan ke depannya..
.


Bangunan 2 lantai eksisting terdiri struktur besi dengan tampias hujan dan kebocoran di beberapa titik. Beberapa hal yang menjadi potensi desain adalah langit – langit yang cukup tinggi, bentang balok yang lebar di eksisting.
.


Strategi pertama adalah merenovasi sisi tampias hujan dengan memberikan kanopi yang menggantung di atas kolom lengkung bata. Hal ini menciptakan repetisi lengkung yang membentuk gua yang terbuat dari bata. Dibawah kanopi diletakkan kisi – kisi besi yang dicat menyerupai kayu untuk mempertahankan durabilitas.


.
Strategi kedua adalah memanfaatkan lengkungan bata yang artistik dan fungsional sehingga terbentuklah vista pertama memasuki ruang lobby dimana klien bisa menempatkan, mengkurasi pameran dalam bentuk desain yang ergonomis. Display pameran ini menarik karena bisa direpetisi di dalam sistem dry panel dengan motif semen yang terintegrasi.


.
Strategi ketiga Massa bangunan dibelah oleh atrium menggunakan atap plastik, disisi inilah, banyak tampias masuk, jadi bagaimana desain talang air menjadi penting untuk mengalirkan air supaya tidak membanjiri atrium. sehingga daerah atrium yang tadinya terkena tampias bisa menjadi vista kedua dimana ada atrium tinggi tempat display dan transisi ruang luar dalam menuju ruangan selanjutnya.
.

Vista ketiga dibentuk dengan axis tegas dari meja – meja diskusi, coffee bar, dan sisi klimaks dimana otten meletakkan barista robot. Anyaman bambu diletakkan di daerah langit – langit, karena sifatnya yang ringan, dan bisa dilengkungkan, anyaman itu disandarkan naik dan turun menciptakan komposisi estetika.

Selama pandemi terjadi kami banyak menerima pekerjaan renovasi, ada bangunan lama yang ingin menjadi bangunan baru.Banyak tempat-tempat itu kosong dan mencari penghuni baru.Refleksi kami terhadap keadaan tersebut adalah bagaimana mendesain arsitektur yang menggunakan struktur lama dengan nilai artistik menjadi satu hal yang dicari – cari, mereka mencari jiwa yang baru.
.
Otten Coffee membuka dirinya untuk berbagai macam kemungkinan design. Kriteria dari mereka sederhana bahwa bangunannya harus unik, dan memanfaatkan struktur lama. Dialog kami dengan klien berlangsung berkali-kali. Mereka sempat berkata ” jangan kalah ya ritel ini nggak boleh kalah uniknya dengan ritel coffee yang ada di luar negeri kita harus membuktikan bahwa Indonesia tidak kalah bagus.” Kami menjawab pak bagaimana kalau kita memakai kekriyaan lokal dan mereka menyambutnya “why not ?”
.
Kekriyaan lokal menjadi benang merah, dan bentuk artistik yang fresh dengan repetisi lengkungan bata terbungkus nuasa semen ekspos dan pencahayaan natural ditambah desain tata letak dan cahaya yang artistik menjadi benang merah awal. Satu waktu itu, klien memutuskan bahwa di ruang Etalase terbelakang akan ditempatkan robot barista. Kami mengecek mendesain ulang lebar -tinggi meja, pencahayaan, dan komposisi sumbu yang membelah garis lurus antara kedatangan sampai titik klimaks sehingga bisa dinikmati pengunjung. Ruang etalase nuansa futuristik dengan latar belakang modul akrilik susu dengan lampu di belakangnya terdiri dari modul – modul detil per 30 cm, jadilah kami mendapatkan benang merah kedua.

.
Dialog klien dan arsitek itu seperti kerjasama koloni semut, kami menghubungkan antena2 untuk berkomunikasi dan menyamakan persepsi. Klien adalah sang ratu yang memiliki visi misi, sedangkan arsitek, kontraktor, dan disiplin yang lain ibaratnya para pekerja, prajuritnya. Satu dan lain hal kami bekerja sama menyambung visi dan persepsi dengan semangat kolaborasi, ya arsitektur itu kerja kolaborasi dan refleksi.

Project 17 – Stupa

Project Description

Stupa is a house like a Castle inspired by Stupa or tapered traditional masonry temple of Indonesian architecture. This form has been exercised in the Guha project and Istakagrha (meaning bricks house), marking the continuation of the experimentation process in the studio. Stupa also means stupa home, a space for meditation, forming a temple or sanctuary for the family.

The project is in the plot of land in Alam Sutera, Tangerang, a rural area of Jakarta that brings peculiarity to the surrounding existing generic neighborhood. The homeowner’s entry celebrates the lush landscape at the front because of the shade of the current Ketapang Kencana tree.

Architecturally The entrances also bring micro-climate from the solid – translucent canopy in the entrance as a promenade walk from the foyer to the living area. The house forms a castle of skylights in the hot, humid Alam Sutera area, forming an oasis outside. The idea is to have lights and air circulation with tiny gaps at the top of the skylights while providing thermal insulation to the house.

The house consists of 3 types of skylights. One is six primary tapered 3.0 x 3.0 m skylights. The second is the serviced 2.0 m x 3.5 m skylights that light the service area, the third is the smaller 0.5 m x 1.25 m skylight that illuminates the toilet area.

In this house, every room has natural lights. The white bricks are stacked at the front to accommodate privacy framing blue color door and view to the backyard. The living room exposed big glass openings towards the gardens by doing that. The living room is double height providing spacious space that allows air stacking effect to the skylights at the house’s core.

Reconstruction of the concept started from Lawang Pintu, meaning vista door that greeted the visitor with open space and continued the passage to Pendopo, meaning the arrival building. The Pendopo is the most prominent structure in the house consisting living room. The attached back part is the serviced area and bedrooms area organized by the tapered skylights roof.

The clients are simple people, the discussion in the project combined the grey plastered cement as a basis craftmanship to surface the house. As simple as the house color, it shows the character of the project, the clients, and the approach of the architecture, which is a simple and understated beauty.

Client’s Brief

Memories

by Obed Iskandar.

Home is a place to build memories. A place where I can introduce lots of things to kids. Most important aspect of home to me is light, light, and lights. The best feeling in the world is waking up from afternoon nap basked in golden sunset rays. I’m not much of a design/artsy person so interior wise, I’d left it to my wife. I’m easily satisfied in this sector. I’m more concerned on the quality and materials of the build. I will be happy if the house is uncluttered/tidy and the house is just running smoothly without any “tetek bengek” to deal with.

Project 16 – Piyandeling (Sederhana)

Project Description

Sederhana is another building from the whole of Piyandeling complex. This building is a one-floored building, just like its name, which is more simplistic than Sumarah and Kujang.

Imaginr-Bacteria

The building is constructed with stone as a podium. Still using bamboo as its main materials, bamboo is used to construct its roofs. The method to make its roof is called Talahap which is a traditional bamboo construction made from layering it on top of each other. The bamboo would then be layered with a waterproof membrane and nipah.

Project 15 – Piyandeling (Kujang)

Project Description

Kujang is another building from the whole of Piyandeling complex. This building is a two-floored building with a large open hall that is used for workshops or meetings.

Imagine-Bacteria

Upholding local vernacularity, Kujang is stretched out with its materials that consist of natural fiber or bamboo for its main structure and daun nipah as the coverage of its roof. The roof is shaped the familiar triangle as an expression of Indonesian vernacular architecture that creates a silhouette of a mountain.

Imagine-Bacteria
Imagine-Bacteria

The bamboos are transformed into balustrades with unique and aesthetic geometry. Not only does it appeal to the eyes, the geometry is also designed such that it will add the overall strength and rigidity of Kujang’s structure.

Imagine-Bacteria

Imagine-Bacteria

The programming of the building requires the surface of its building to contact the earth as minimally as possible. As a solution, Kujang is also designed with a floating structure underneath. This solution also acts as a response to the environment of the site that faces struggle in gathering clean water caused by water pipes that are not accommodating enough. With its floating structure, waters are ensured to follow directions to the land.

Evanjelicel Tamio – Universitas Pelita Harapan

Firstly, I really want to take a part and give my best strength to the amazing team and architecture that RAW’s built. Personally I am amazed and have studied some of RAW’s works through books, online publications and social media, especially when I visited and directly enjoyed The Guild and Alfa Omega schools. For me, studying architecture is about curiosity and questions, of course this is very fun and challenging, but it’s time for that challenge to no longer come from something fictitious like a problem in the studio. This thought arose because I felt that I really did not understand the world of architecture when working in the field directly. from there I realized that architecture must be learned from it’s experts; I want to get the right place and mentor to improve the quality and professionalism of myself and the architecture that I will build in the future. And I believe that RAW architecture will give me just that and more experiences that I never expected before.

Hybrid Indonesian Architecture by Realrich Sjarief | Principal Architect of RAW Architecture

When Yann Follain asked me to join him in Making of Architecture TAB Series 2, I looked at several other presenters such as Goy Architects, Ply Studio Architects, and Chat Architects. They discuss the discourse of making in their regions. Some of them have even done cross-regional lessons in their architectural project. I had in my mind to reinterpret the word discussed in LSAI (Lembaga Sejarah Arsitektur Indonesia) at the beginning of the year. That word is “decolonization architecture.” These complex layers that enrichen Indonesia’s Architecture resulted from a hybrid architecture.

.

Critical and creative analysis. It’s part of unitizing materials of projects, wisdom, knowledge, and an open attitude to become one language of hybridization in RAW Architecture as case studies. I started the presentation by discussing rhythm 0 by Marina Abramović, and she did the art performance of letting people do something without doing anything. She left the act almost naked. That shows what happens if we stay silent, give up, and remain passive. That includes the condition of the colonization era and how the political affects architecture.

.
It’s a reflection that will elaborate on the study and transformation of vernacular and traditional roots in creating a Hybrid Indonesian Architecture. I believe that architects, in this case, “we” have territory, cultures, political and economic systems built from vernacular tectonics, method (Design-Thinking), and craftmanship (Design Making). The hybridization of these systems can inform the development of a new approach to architecture, deep-rooted in the rich understanding of local crafts and contexts. This condition paves the way for a process of ‘Decolonisation,’ marking a “cultural, psychological, and economic freedom” practiced by humanity to achieve Indigenous Sovereignty — the right and ability of architects to practice self-determination through collaborations with society.

.
So this is an attempt to put RAW Architecture, DOT Workshop, Omah Library in the act of reflections as activists to move on our limitations in one short presentation and discussion with Yann Follain. He is the curator of this TAB series and principal of Wy -To architects.

.

Here are the list sent by Yann Follain,

Q3 #07, Goy Architects : 

  • Q3 #08, Ply Studio Architects :
  • Q3 #09, CHAT Architects :

Please look at the other talks done by such great intellects that I admire.

Gabriela Marcelina – Universitas Kristen Petra

Hello! My name is Gabriela Marcelina, but everyone usually calls me Gaby. I’m in the seventh semester of my architecture studies at Petra Christian University. I come from Surabaya, and from birth to age 21 always “played” not far from Surabaya. In the middle of 2021, I, who had become interested in architecture, decided to step outside of my comfort zone to explore and learn more about architecture by doing an internship at RAW architecture. Long story short, when I first started studying architecture, I didn’t really understand what architecture was, “What did I learn? What brought me here?”.

Until, finally, in the 3rd semester, I began to gain a better understanding of what architecture is and why architects are needed. I recall it vividly. It was the start of the 3rd semester, and we were given a task to design a multi-mass restaurant. At the time, my thought was, “Well, it’s gonna be fun; I can design a restaurant however I want.” But, over time, throughout the tutoring process, I was taught that it is essential to design a building that is not only of our own volition (the designer) but also one that can “please” its residents or visitors. Later, I was asked by my tutor to do a personal analysis of the human programmatic study, which at that time I did not understand the purposes, “what for? There’s already on Neufert’s book.” Until as time goes by, and when I entered the designing process, I just understood the purpose of my tutor telling me to do programmatic analysis, which helped me realize that I can’t only make visually beautiful buildings. But, it is also necessary to create buildings that can make the residents or visitors feel comfortable and safe by studying their behavior.

Through the knowledge that I got, I am very grateful because it has helped me become a more critical, detailed person who thinks holistically, both in the design process during studio projects in school or in competition, and in daily life. Also through lessons during my studies in school about behavioral, biophilic, and sustainability, I become concerned and interested in people, nature, space, existence, and the future. Since there are many processes that I go through while studying architecture in school, I become more “hungry” for architectural knowledge that occurs in real life. “What does the real-life architecture look like?”. This question has been in my head a lot since I was in school. Therefore, to answer the curiosity that has been suppressed for too long, I finally got up the courage and decided to go through the internship at RAW Architecture.

One of the best decisions I’ve ever made was to apply for an internship at RAW Architecture. I’d like to express my gratitude for giving me the opportunity to join the RAW Architecture family. When it comes to applying to RAW, one of my main goals is to learn. Until, finally, during my internship, what I learned about architecture in RAW far exceeded my expectations. I was very guided in learning about real-life architecture in RAW. Every time I get a new assignment, I am very delighted because every time I completed the task, I gain a lot of insight and knowledge that at first appears to be very unfamiliar to my ear. Every day in the studio, I will definitely hear, understand, and learn new vocabulary about architecture and drawing techniques that I have never known before. Aside from learning about architecture through RAW, I also often get insights about life, which help me to develop and grow into a better person.

Through this testimony, I would also like to thank:

1. Kak Rich is always willing to share his knowledge and insights with others. For example, Kak Rich always gives us much insight about hard skills or soft skill tips related to the studio project every Monday meeting. He also always encourages us to learn writing, and one time he’s willing to teach us about communication skills despite his busy schedule. Also thanks to the presence of Kak Rich, who is always humble and appreciates both the small and big things, the studio environment becomes very friendly, cool, and fun.

2. Kak Timbul, Kak Vivi, Kak Alim, Kak Rico, Kak Riyan, Kak Pandu, Kak Tyo, Kak Haykal, Kak Vyan, Kak Khafid, Kak Mei-Mei, and Kak Fina, who have always been willing to take time out of their busy schedules to teach me about architecture, software, as well as life lessons and many more. Thank you for always sharing with me life insights, always being happy to answer every question that I had about my studies in school when I was confused, always making me laugh with their hilarious jokes, always giving valuable advice, and never making me feel left out.

3. My internship friends, Celine, Neilson, and Kak Ubi, who are always willing to help and teach me whenever I’m unsure and confused about something and are very fun to talk to.

4. The other members of RAW Architecture, are always friendly to me and never make me feel excluded while in RAW.

Lastly, I’m extremely happy and grateful to be a part of the RAW Architecture family. Even though I am currently far away from my family, I feel very happy to have a new family in Jakarta who is willing to accept me, guide me from zero, and always wholeheartedly give me a bunch of knowledge. Surely, all of my experiences and memories in RAW architecture will definitely be remembered fondly in my heart. RAW architecture is indeed the best office ever! ^^


Gaby’s Birthday

Sudah 7 bulan gaby bertapa di guha. mempelajari dinamika dan menerapkan nya di gua nya sendiri. sehingga terus berlatih tanpa henti hingga ahli tanpa di sadari. tidak mudah untuk tetap mencair dengan keaadaan dan bisa menempatkan diri hingga tak nampak dinding pemisah antara internship dengan keadaan sekitar. gabriella yang biasa di panggil gaby kemarin berulang tahun di guha dan ulang tahun pertama ketika jauh dari orang tua nya.

seperti biasa budaya di guha, memberikan refleksi diri dan harapan di umur 22. menurut Millie Ellen umur 22 itu peralihan antara teenager ke adult yang mana bebas melakukan hal yang mau di lakukan terlepas dari ketakutan yang akan di hadapi. merurut Talyor Swift, umur 22 itu senang, bebas, dan bingung di waktu yang sama.

kita semua berharap dengan acara ini, ekosistem Guha selalu mengalirkan hal hal positif dari hulu ke hilir

I will give workshop and sharing in Taylor University Malaysia. It’s first session for my being adjunct associate professor in there. I received invitation by Veronica Ng for the vision to share similar / contextual inspirations in South East Asia Region to redefine our own asian heritage.

Here is the explanation for the session.

Craftsmanship is the art of making, which involves traditional and industrial techniques. It is implemented and synthesized by people from multidisciplinary fields such as makers, engineers, design specialists, or even master artisans. The boundary between what architects did and what the other discipline is precise. The next question is, Is the implementation of craftsmanship that clear? The presentation will share an unorthodox view about making architecture from the importance of the craftsman guild, a workshop area for experimenting, extending to an ecosystem of builders that support the architect. The guild in the project also has memories that became grammar. It’s designed for the experimentation itself and, last but not least, for the clients that support you.

For the executions, some preparations are needed, such as grammar, drawing, critical thinking, creativity on-site to achieve a healthy ecosystem for making architecture. It’s about know-how on joineries and deconstructing dimensional mind that using the available material and adaptive technique is the forefront runner for architecture ecosystems that create the diversity of architecture.

The sharing sesion will be 25th October 2021 at 02.30 pm

Batas itu dimana ?

Saya seringkali berpikir, di dalam segala hal yang di sekitar kita yang penuh batasan. Bagaimana caranya mengetahui titik kelemahan diri kita sendiri ? Segala sesuatu yang jadi kekuatan biasanya adalah kelemahannya sendiri. Segala sesuatu yang jadi kekuatan bisa jadi kekuatannya. Lalu bagaimana caranya mengetahui kekuatan dan kelemahan, supaya keduanya bisa saling berdialog.

Saya akan mulai dengan preposisi :

If you care about only your name, the limit is in the name itself.

If you care only about other people’s name the limit is in the other’s people name in your mind.

If you care about only your workshop, the limit is in the workshop itself

If you care about only your progress in Guha, the limit is in the Guha itself

If you care about introversion of yourself, the limit is in the introversion of yourself.

Saya sering bilang,

“saya tidak peduli, kalau…”

lalu kemudian saya menimpali kalimat selanjutnya dengan,

“Kak Rich minta maaf kalau tidak peduli. Kita perlu sadar bahwa…”

Yang membuat saya tersenyum adalah seringkali asisten saya, tidak mendengarkan sampai selesai, jadi dia mengambil kesimpulan kalau saya benar – benar tidak peduli, padahal saya menunjukkan kepedulian saya dengan mengatakan saya tidak peduli supaya munculnya kesadaran kolektif. Barulah mereka kasak – kusuk, berdesas – desus, dan apalagi sampai berdiskusi akan kejadian tersebut. Ditambah lagi seringkali, saya menimpalinya lagi dengan kenapa saya menjelaskan saya tidak peduli adalah sisi emosional manusia yang sedang keluar untuk mengharapkan adanya perubahan dengan lebih cepat.

Dan kenapa kita perlu berubah dengan cepat, dan perlu tidak perlunya merubah dengan cepat. Kemudian saya menjelaskan bahwa saya perlu meminta maaf karena kecepatan itu saya anggap begitu karena hidup ini hanya satu kali, namun hal itu juga menjadi batasan yang baru, pertanyaannya, kalau memang hidup hanya sekali, lalu kenapa harus cepat – cepat atau terbirit – birit ?

Pada akhirnya saya belajar bahwa melambatkan ritme itu penting, mempercepat ritme juga penting. Terkadang sisi lontaran emosi unutk tidak peduli itu penting bukan menunjukkan ketidak pedulian, namun justru sebaliknya, dan juga lontaran emosi menjadi peduli itu penting. Keduanya adalah cerminan emosional sesaat yang terkadang menjadi tidak emosional juga tidak kalah pentingnya.

Yang menjadi menarik adalah bagaimana caranya mengintegrasikan berbagai macam hal ? yang juga menarik adalah juga bagaimana menjalani kedua kutub kiri dan kanan, positif dan negatif, bisnis dan berbagi, diri sendiri dan orang lain, personal juga komunal secara bersamaan. Dan pergulatan sisi – sisi kontradiktif tersebut menghasilkan rekonsiliasi pemikiran yang mencengangkan, dan maha dahsyat, ledakan kreatifitas dengan mengetahui batas diri.

Namun sebelum kita masuk kesitu, saya ingin berbagi satu cerita mengenai latar belakang kontradiksi tersebut.

Saya punya cerita, dulu waktu di Surabaya saya sering pulang sekolah bersama ibu saya naik becak. Hal yang saya damba – dambakan adalah perjalanan naik becak itu, karena saya bisa melihat lebih lambat bagaimana orang berinteraksi. Kami melewati pasar, jalan – jalan tanah, dan rumah – rumah petak. Biasanya kami naik becak berdua, adik saya kalau tidak salah masih kecil dan saya masih TK pada saat itu.

Perjalanan itu memiliki beberapa kemungkinan. Saya tidak pernah bilang apapun ke ibu saya bahwa yang saya inginkan dan saya suka adalah perjalanan melalui kuburan Kembang Kuning.

Kami melintas area kuburan itu untuk mendapatkan jalan pintas. Saya ingat, melintasi kuburan itu adalah perjalanan sekitar 5 menit. Dari kejauhan, saya merasakan udara menjadi dingin, wewangian bunga mulai semerbak, dan warna – warni tanaman mulai muncul. Saya melihat pedestal kuburan yang kokoh, repetitif, beraneka rupa, dan indah – indah. Ada yang terbuat dari granit, ataupun marmer, ada juga yang dari kayu. Lebar jalan kuburan itu hanya sekitar 2.5 m, dan ada saja yang tidak rata. Kadang – kadang kepala saya terantuk kepala ibu saya ataupun besi becak, tapi selalu saya berdiri kembali untuk melihat suasana kuburan, menghirup udara yang wangi, dan merasakan dinginnya kuburan tersebut. Saya melihat bunga – bunga bougenville , dan wanginya harum, saya suka sekali dengan bunga kenanga. Padahal banyak orang bilang itu bunga orang mati.

Kelewat senangnya kalau lewat kuburan, saya selalu ada di depan becak sedepan – depannya untuk menghirup udara wangi kuburan. Ibu saya suka bilang “Kamu ngapain sih ? kaya anak kampung aja.” Belum lagi beliau kadang – kadang geli sendiri, kalau melihat saya suka makan pakai tangan, ataupun jalan tidak memakai sandal. Saya suka dengan hal – hal yang langsung, karena dari situ saya merasakan sentuhan, kehangatan, wewangian meskipun lucunya hal itu dianggap aneh oleh ibu saya.

Perjalanan saya praktik juga sama, ada hal yang saya suka, selalu saya ulang – ulang. Hal tersebut muncul karena saya merasakan keterhubungan langsung, emosional, dan personal. Saya mencoba membayangkan apa jadinya ya kalau bentuk ini begini dan begitu. Lebih lanjut lagi saya membayangkan apa jadinya ya, kalau orang ini merasakan ini dan itu. Ini dan itu, begini dan begitu, menjadi reka ruka, olah bentuk, berdasarkan pertimbangan – pertimbangan yang menerus. Inti dasarnya adalah kejujuran dalam berproses, membuka telinga tanpa harus terbawa arus juga. Begitu banyak kata – kata positif yang membangun kita, dan juga banyak juga kata – kata negatif yang bisa juga membangun kita asalkan pikiran kita bisa merubah yang negatif tersebut menjadi positif. Dan hal tersebut adalah sebuah proses untuk memahami diri kita sendiri. Dan satu hal yang terpenting yang saya pelajari adalah bagaimana menjadi satu kata

“Jujur akan diri sendiri.” kata – kata ibu saya adalah doa, ia tertawa melihat saya yang sungguh aneh, dan hal tersebut adalah pemaknaan tersendiri. Namun perasaan jujur tersebut adalah titik tengah sebelum pikiran kita bisa bermain dengan kutub – kutub ekstrim selanjutnya.

Di dalam arsitektur hal ini disebut juxtaposition, memperbandingkan dan mengintegrasikan kedua hal dengan ekstrim. Hal ini menghasilkan hasil yang hibrida. Pemikiran hal – hal seperti tidak ada yang baru di dunia ini, juga tidaklah benar seluruhnya, dan pemikiran bahwa ide dasar itu selalu orisinal juga tidaklah benar seluruhnya. Dan pertanyaan lebih mendasar, apa sih yang benar itu ? ataukah bukan masalah kebenaran ? tapi bagaimana saya paham mengenai batasan diri saya sendiri.

Dan kemudian, barulah kita bisa mengambil kesimpulan,

“saya cukup”

Di tengah – tengah Plato dan Aristoteles ada anak – anak dengan wujud kecil, berbaju putih yang menengahi mereka berdua ketika berdialog. Wujudnya lebih kecil dari lubang telinga, lubang hidung, dan lubang- lubang yang lain. Ia menyapa,

“hallo, namaku Kronos, sang penjaga semesta aku penjaga waktu, jembatan alfa dan omega ! cukup atau tidak cukup waktumu, kita cukupkan.”

Lu’luil Ma’nun

Perkenalkan nama saya Lu’luil Ma’nun, bisa dipanggil Luluk. Waktu awal semester masa kuliah di Arsitektur UII (Universitas Islam Indonesia) saya sangat tertarik pada dunia Arsitektur, maket saya sering terpilih untuk dipresentasikan, kalau kata teman-teman saya karya saya selalu nyeleneh dan khas. Namun di pertengahan semester setelah mulai menggunakan tekhnolgi saya mulai redup dan down di semester 6, hampir ingin off dari Arsitektur. Beruntungnya saya menceritakan hal ini kepada Dosen saya bapak Yulianto Prihatmaji (Beliau salah satu dosen yang sangat saya kagumi – karena kepribadian dan kontribusinya di dunia sosial Arsitektur). Beliau memperkenalkan saya pada dunianya terkait mendesain desa wisata, saya mulai diajak terlibat ke proyek -proyek beliau. Dan dititik ini saya mulai jatuh cinta lagi pada dunia arsitektur.

Waktu kuliah saya adalah aktivis dakwah (Takmir Masjid Ulil Albab, UII) sehingga relasi saya adalah kalangan orang-orang sosial dan banyak terlibat pada aktivitas sosial. Waktu terus berjalan, menginjak semester 8-14, saya berkutat dengan skripsi saya, saya kebingungan untuk mengerjakannya dan terjebak dianalisis sehingga saya tidak memulai – mulai untuk mendesain. Sampai akhirnya karena 3 semester belum selesai-selesai (Karena saya anaknya tidak bisa berdiam diri, otak saya terus menerus menemukan ide-ide, walaupun kadang bukan ide-ide arsitektur, dan fisik saya selalu ingin berkelana dan mengetaui banyak hal, walaupun kadang bukan di bidang arsitektur). Saya tidak terlalu paham apa itu metodologi design, tulisan saya juga tidak terlalu baik, dll. Karena saya jarang membaca dan tidak terlalu bisa berbahasa inggris. Tapi yang saya selalu pegang adalah saya ingin melakukannya dengan terbaik, punya tujuan yang jelas serta bisa langsung bermanfaat.

Saat skripsi saya memegang 1 proyek nyata sambil skripsi, yaitu Indonesia Mining Education Park di Yogyakarta. Namun hal ini membuat dosen saya marah, karena saya tidak terlalu produktif di skripsi saya. Sehingga beliau memberikan saya hukuman untuk setiap hari harus mengerjakan diruangan beliau dari jam 7 pagi sampai jam 4 sore (setiap hari kecuali hari minggu) – tapi karena saya benar-benar mau belajar saya ikuti saran beliau sampai hari minggu pun saya datang sesuai jam dan mengerjakan ditaman kampus dan Alhamdulillah saya bisa lulus. Namun diawal-awal itu semua tidak bisa saya terima, “kenapa saya harus mengerjakannya disana, kenapa saya harus dihukum seperti ini dll, sedangkan teman-teman yang lain bisa mengerjakan dimana saja, kadang di studio dan kadang di luar”. Saya agak bergejolak waktu itu dan akhirnya saya mulai mencari motivasi eksternal “Bagaimana sebenarnya seorang Arsitek ?, apa yang salah dari saya ? apa yang harus saya lakukan sekarang ?”, dan saya mulai membuka-muka youtube, melihat profil-profil arsitek dan kisah-kisahnya.

Dari sekian banyak video di youtube yang saya tonton, saya hanya tertarik kepada video bapak yang tentang “Memakai baju seperti professional arsitek sejak kuliah dan menjadi orang terakhir yang menutup pintu”, menurut saya itu adalah nasehat-nasehat yang sangat deep. Disitu saya mulai mengikuti perjalanan bapak. Dan saya kagum, namun rasanya terlalu jauh untuk bisa bergabung. Karena background arsitektur saya tidak terlalu bagus. Akhirnya semangat saya kembali, saya mulai membayangkan hari-hari saya sebagai seorang arsitek yang menikmati waktu disiplin saya. Saya mulai membaca, menulis dan mendesain skripsi saya dengan fokus. Saya mencari orang yang benar-benar membutuhkan jasa desain, karena saya ingin setelah skripsi saya selesai desain saya bisa berguna. Singkat cerita saya bertemu mas Azwir Nazar ketua PPI dunia pada waktu itu, beliau punya tanah wakaf dan yayasan. Beliau mencari di instagram seseorang yang bisa membantu beliau menggambar dan tanpa pikir panjang saya langsung ajukan sebagai skripsi saya dan saya terbang ke Aceh dengan uang pribadi saya, walaupun pada saat itu saya pinjam uangnya. Tapi saya bahagia melakukannya. Dan akhirnya skripsi saya selesai dan mereka menggunakan gambar saya yang apa adanya untuk mencari investor/dana. Setelah lulus kuliah, saya menggantikan teman saya bekerja di MK Arsitek Yogya, saya coba membuat desain rumah. Setelah mereka melihat hasilnya mereka menolak saya. Saat itu saya down lagi dan saya mengalihkan diri dari dunia arsitektur. saya merasa butuh pengetahuan bisnis, butuh pengetahuan digital marketing dll untuk mensupport kehidupan saya dan mendukung dunia arsitektur saya suatu saat nanti. Saya jadi fotografer, video grafer, guru les privat desain grafis, penitipan barang dan yang terakhir saya bergabung di tempat fashion untuk membuat pola. Tiga bulan berjalan di tempat fashion itu saya mulai merasa ada gejolak, bahwa saya tidak seharusnya ada disini, saya dibutuhkan sebagai arsitek, saya harus kembali ke dunia saya (karena tiba-tiba client berdatangan kepada saya, yang saat ini masih menjadi project yang belum selesai/masih saya kerjakan). Di titik ini saya sadar bahwa saya sangat-sangat mencintai dunia aritektur. Tapi saya sadar saya butuh belajar kepada seorang arsitek.

Saya berusaha mengumpulkan kedisplinan saya seperti sejak mengerjakan skripsi sebagai arsitek dan mencoba mendesain. Namun otak saya terus menerus berfikir dan menghasilkan ide-ide, sehingga saya ingin membuat platform “Self Development Architect”, sehingga orang-orang yang seperti saya, yang belum terlalu kompeten di dunia arsitektur bisa percaya diri, belajar dan mulai berkontribusi. Dan karena client yang masuk ke saya rata-rata adalah orang-orang yang baru ingin mencari dana untuk membangun, saya terpikir membuat program Crowdsourcing design. Di titik ini juga saya melihat informasi Darah Muda Omah Library. Sehingga saya merasa ada teman dan saya ingin benar-benar bergabung dan terus belajar. Karena saya sadar karena saya masih penuh keterbatasan, saya butuh belajar, saya butuh berjuang sesama-sama orang-orang yang satu value. Saya berdo’a kepada Allah agar dipertemukan dengan orang-orang yang satu value, mereka menerima saya, dan saya bisa belajar dan berjuang bersama dengan mereka. Dan akhirnya saya terpikirkan, Pak Realrich Sjarief dan Omah Library sebagai tempat saya belajar dan berjuang. Walaupun dalam bayangan saya rasanya tidak mungkin, karena pasti qualifikasi saya sebagai arsitek sangat kurang. Tapi selalu ada dorongan di hati saya untuk mencoba Karena saya bersungguh-sungguh dan melihat value yang sama. Sampai pada akhirnya saya DM Pak Realrich Sjarief dan sampai pada saat ini saya menulis motivation letter saya.

Terimakasih sudah membaca motivation letter saya Pak, yang saya buat dengan penuh semangat, walaupun mungkin masih banyak kekurangan.

Hormat saya,
Lu’luil Ma’nun

Notes :

  • Maaf atas tulisan eyd saya yang belum baik.
  • Self Development Architect yang saya bayangkan seperti di instagram @socialkreatif tapi versi Arsitektur dan saya memulainya
    di @betseenarsi (All of thing bertween Arsitektur and Site)
  • Saya ingin mengarahkan otak saya selalu tidak pernah berhenti mengeluarkan ide-ide ditempat yang tepat.
  • Saya suka membaca berulang-ulang buku “The Secret of Architect’s Life ”
  • saya baru mulai benar-benar memahami apa itu skripsi
    setelah membaca buku “Methodgram”

Guha by RAW architecture has been shortlisted in the business building category of Dezeen Awards 2021

Guha is shortlisted in the Dezeen Awards 2021 in business category ^^ Guha is a craftsman organic laboratory. It’s a building based on the transformation of experimentation of multiple materials.

Thank you for Dezeen, and we are together with Sanya Farm Lab by CLOUD Architects, FRizz23 by Deadline Architects, Imatra Electricity Substation by Virkkunen & Co. Architects, and Nodi by White Akitekter. They are great architects that we admire and learn from (their framework, design approach, detail, and many more).

After this, it’s a public vote ^^. Hopefully the process of transformation in Guha will always bring in-depth learning for us that can be shared to other people.

Guha by RAW architecture has been shortlisted in the business building category of Dezeen Awards 2021. RAW Architecture has designed Guha to accommodate offices, architecture studios, and dental clinics.

RAW Architecture implements a sustainable design approach in an effort to contribute to human and environmental sustainability by reducing carbon footprints. Departing from the context of the tropical climate in Indonesia with high rainfall and sunlight intensity, the space is designed to be responsive to the climate.

This is manifested in the layout of mass and space-oriented to the path of the sun, while the skin plays a role in reducing sunlight as well as air circulation. It is also supported by details through craftsmanship-making processes.

This project has been shortlisted in the business building category of Dezeen Awards 2021.

My team and I are really pleased to get the news :) hoping the architecture in Indonesia can spread to the world. Congrats to @guhatheguild @realricharchitectureworkshop @omahlibrary and all of the team, clients, including craftsmen, and friends. #formingbricolage

Surabaya – In Father’s Workshop

Looking back, I was born in Surabaya, near the poor slum area where there were crazy people, prostitutes, and the gap between rich and poor. Our family lived on Jalan Dukuh Kupang Timur gang 13 no. 75. I grew up and played in several alleys adjacent to Dolly’s Gang, which signifies the gap between a paradoxical iceberg phenomenon related to the necessities of life and the city’s identity.

I met one kid named Hamid every day, and he is a crazy toddler. Every time I pass him, I look at his genuine behavior such as running while showing arm-pit, laughing a lot unpretentiously, and always half-naked, walking without clothes. I asked my mother, who is Hamid. I found out that he came from a low-income family, his father and mother had many children, and his home is beside my grandmother’s home. I enjoyed it when I saw him, and it looked like he found his inner joy even though other people couldn’t understand him. He has a smile on his face, and I smile because of that. His smile is contagious, and my mother used to say,

“are you crazy? stop smiling and daydreaming.”

My father worked in Jakarta, and my mother, me, and three brothers were in Surabaya.

My father comes home once a week. The trip to pick up my father at the airport along with my mother is a lasting memory. We made The journey to Juanda airport at night. Usually, my father lands at 19:30, my mother drives, and we pass Waru, where rice fields stretch on the dark horizon. The journey was quiet, and we listened to the only sound of church songs set in a red civic car.

This red civic car is quite an impression because this is my father’s first car where he gave this car to my mother in Surabaya, while my father himself used a green used Kijang in Jakarta. It’s a pickup car. The pickup often gets hit and crashes because the driver is also a beginner or an impromptu driver, my father’s handyman. Uniquely, the green deer has an air conditioner that is colder than my mother’s honda civic. As if some futuristic junk, my dad didn’t have enough of one. He had two.

Our house in Dukuh Kupang consists of two plots, and each property has its access road. The left lot has garage door access with doors made of stainless steel pipes. At the same time, the right plot has one height with a canopy of thin iron plates, which is the entrance to the main house, while on the left, there is a small building plan field on the perimeter of the building. On this side, there is a small workshop, in which there is a chicken coop, craftsmanship tools such as saws, chisels, hammers, nails, or used plywood boards.

I was lucky because my mother was super busy at that time. She was active in the catholic group. When I was six years old, she cooked cookies to sell and loved to go to prayer groups. She is a busy person.
My mother likes to bake cakes to give or sell to people. She is pretty independent and firm in educating us, four sons. I know that our mother and father are always busy. I always like to accompany my mother for prayers or gatherings with church gatherings. While my mother was super busy, I had my own time in the workshop. I adored my father’s trace in the workshop, not because I saw his work or how he was working but simply because of the experiments he allowed me to do, and he always encouraged us to build our stuff. This workshop is where I make my wooden sword. One time, I created my sword using plywood. I used a saw to cut the plywood and make my toy. I get a feeling that we can make things by ourselves, even though it’s probably not perfect if seen by others, but it was perfect for me. I was proud of my toy.

Our residence is also adjacent to the carpenter’s house. From the front, you can see people passing by, and the workshop is always busy. Every time I pass the carpenter, I see piles of doors and wood – used wood. I just found out that Mr. Pardi, the head of the workshop, is a confidant of my father, who helped him make the doors for his project. Every year my mother and father always held a big meal celebration. All the chief craftsmen and their deputies will be present. The event was about chatting until the morning, including drinking events that have become their tradition. It’s an act of gratefulness celebrating the spirit of togetherness. It’s started by my grand father.

One time my father invited us to Jakarta, we stopped at my father’s boarding house. The room was small but warm. There my mother decided to help my father. From there, we plan to move to Jakarta. Leaving Surabaya was not easy. I had fallen in love with my freedom to play in my father’s workshop, chasing chickens, but seeing my father’s face when he landed and showing his face at the arrival gate made me miss. Maybe my mother wanted us to grow up together. I am in 3rd grade, and my little brother is going to kindergarten, my second big brother is in 6th grade, and my first big brother is going to 1st grade of high school. At that time, I was pretty sad that I had a feeling to move, where I already had my comfort zone in Surabaya. I didn’t know what would happen in Jakarta. I missed my playground, workshop, our fantastic house, and activity in praying groups. But I was excited to experience life with my father. I can see him every day, and It must be exciting.

In my father’s legacy

I write this to show how I am thankful to my parents that have nurtured me and inspired me. They helped me grow, showing an example and encouraging me always to show my best, focus, be happy, and respect people without expecting somebody to listen while singing and dancing.

Up front, an educator must set a good example. In the middle or among students, the teacher must create initiatives and ideas. From behind, a teacher must provide encouragement and direction“,

Redefine Role

It took years to redefine the role and responsibility of people in the studio Realrich Architecture Workshop. Below, I have written 4 roles to simplify how we work as a team and my responsibility as principal. These 4 roles are 4 different worlds, the associate designer is a world of techne, a world of architecture methodology grammar. That is the world of a design methodology. The second world is administration which is the world of matters, currency, and reality. It consists of archives and a way to survive. On the other hand, The Librarian and researcher in the world of episteme. It involves theorizing reality and fantasy. And, the last one in the world of phronesis is practical knowledge, which is called the craftsmen world. Below are the pictures of the dream team – Best Office in the World.

Principal Architect

As a principal, I am responsible for designing the vision and implementing the studio’s mission, making initial sketches, or discussing our experiments with the design team and clients. Our studio can develop from detail, materiality, and context understanding because the design is a collaborative process. This is possible in direct coordination with the design team, the associate designers, therefore.

The process of appointing us as an architectural firm is not easy to require. The relative compatibility is shown through a shared vision, a common goal, or simply a common approach. Once the client entrusts the results and process to us, it is the most valuable thing in the world of architecture.

From details to design concepts, the whole work shows how consistent we are with the richness of a multi-perspective, multi-disciplinary, multi-interest architectural approach. The entire procedure is evaluated in the form of architectural theory and is widely published.
It aims to jointly support the appreciation of architecture and the architectural profession in Indonesia. I believe that architecture, when thought out, is a powerful force that can improve the lives of many people.

Associate Designer

Associate designers at RAW Architecture have 1 year to 5 years of experience. The designers will be trained to reach the level of becoming a registered architects. They are connected in a studio where practical case studies are discussed to become a comprehensive grammar studio. In general, in some studios, the associate designer is called a junior architect or architectural assistant part 2 for ARB (Architect Registration Board) standardization. The name about this is related to habits and the meaning you want to aim for. I think there is a fundamental concept that is our studio culture about interpersonal relationships. I answered it with the idea of associate or associated with a collaborative, personal, and multi-personal design process. The associate is a concept that connects people’s social relationships with one another. A designer is someone who tries to solve design problems.

The learning process to become an associate designer at our studio has two paths. The first path is learning at the conceptual stage, then understanding how to draw technically well. The second path is to learn directly in the field, know the construction details, and then dismantle the knowledge of architectural concepts. Associate designers are people who have creative and critical power in answering architectural problems. The architectural design process faced by associate designers starts from reading the situation and context, dialogue with the principal for formulating design steps, managing project management, and carrying out forensic engineering with the integration of multi-disciplinary knowledge.

The association’s conception experiences a shift in meaning and reality every time due to the complexity of ethics, capabilities, and professional facts that the Indonesian Architects Association constantly updates.

Administration

The people in the administration department are responsible for documenting project archives, studios, libraries, including keeping the discipline of the large team as simple as possible regarding the neatness of bookkeeping related to taxes, accounting, finance, taxes, public relations, and personnel. Administrative tasks are carried out by recording chronologically according to job categories with an integrated system. The administration team led by Drg. Laurensia Yudith maintains client relations and reports with the principal to maintain the studio’s accountability and credibility.

Librarians and Researchers

The people involved in this division work in the Omah library. They are librarians who catalog and archive books. Librarians also have duties as researchers who carry out writing and production of knowledge through architectural literacy. Furthermore, the activity at Omah Library is to dialogue about relevant thought discourses with individuals who have critical thinking about everyday problems. At Omah Library, librarians and researchers also help develop architectural theory and archive case studies to form the basis for further architectural discourse. Librarians and researchers generally have 1 – 5 years of experience with multi-perspective thinking and comprehensive literacy skills. There are times when I invite them to develop architectural theories that are useful for our practice.

Craft Leader

The Craft Leader here means the leader of the builder who dedicates his time to the art, passion, and ability to not only build but make building art with taste and become a focus for subordinates indirect work or provide direction. The educational process to become a craftsman leader starts from the assitant, 1/2 craftsman, craftsman, executive craftsman, master craftsman. They are people who have 25-35 years of experience starting from before our studio was founded, during the time of my grandfather and parents. They have 10-25 years of practical experience who have had at least 3 built projects. In the next stage, the chief craftsman transforms into an advisor of art in building. They have worked from Sumatra, Kalimantan, Java, to Sulawesi.

Epilogue

Documentation of how we work, my interpretation of the ecosystem. The practical craftsmanship of RAW Architecture in Indonesia is being compiled in a manuscript on the philosophy of thinking about the roots of our craft school as a small, mutually supportive ecosystem.
