Focus 2019: Sustainability – Meet Satria
There are other terms about sustainability that my lecture told me back in the uni-life, he said that sustainability is a nonsense thing, and it is not possible to do in such a way. Why? Let us think about how human being to deal with their life, especially architecture.
Most of the architectural project does have issues due to their site, moreover the earth. That’s why we attempted to do research about how it wouldn’t have bigger issues. In my country, Indonesia, vernacular architecture was made from local geniuses consciousness. Hereditary that we have such a believing to become more grateful to the earth-mother. By doing so, most of the traditional housing were built harmony and less harm. The resources were managed well, also recovered as responsibility. We believe about temporariness about architecture, so it should be cordial. Sustainability means we have to think a lot about civilization itself. Favorable civilization will make peoples less-ego, and think about the futures, the effect of unplanned-well architecture. Bad cultures will make good sustainability architecture unwell treated. That’s why we’ll talk nonsense about sustainability when it doesn’t come to civilization.
After attempting to explore another country and compare them to mine, I found that human being has a big contribution to their cities, the same to sustainability. In some case, I found that Yogyakarta with their hospitality built a good environment that closes to natures. We also could hear many crickets and birds singing in the street of Seoul, South Korea. I tried experimenting with an open-design approach to architectural design. I didn’t take the importance of architects in above, then we’ll make sure that communities will perceive that they’re the designer, they will have the most of care and love to prepare the building together. A sustainable civilization leads to architecture itself.
