XYZ Project Podcast with Gary Yeow and Ryoga Dipowikoro

“Last Sunday, I had a discussion with Gary and Ryoga. They are the next generation of Malaysian and Indonesian designers who will color the future of regional architecture. It’s explicit that their questions and point of view are about how to come back to their homeland and improve the discussions, discourse, making further dialogue to deconstruct the post-colonial limitation. It appreciates what the region has and improves it along the way with more analysis and participation to enrich the current progress and revealing state of each architecture DNA.”

Phantom of Architecture

Architecture is sometimes interpreted as buildings or space in between, or body of theory. It’s a phantom, an unseen object of something apparent to sense but with no substantial existence. The Phantom actually greets and haunts us as traditions and technology. The sharing in here will focus on the paradoxes that creates bricolages of Architecture Fantasy in post modern era. It’s a way to use history for re-contextualizing the practice to be grounded or being radical to open unlimited possibilities of ideas.
