Titik Awal Book Documents Multi-Generation Architects As a Learning Process

(Bahasa text below) OMAH Library launched their latest publication titled Titik Awal, through a series of event on December 8 to 9, 2018. The book launch consists of three events. the primary event was a book discussion with Titik Awal as the subject led by the exhibition director, Gregorius G. Gerard, along with the book’s editorial team, Florent Fernisia R., and Rifandi S. Nugroho.

Titik Awal book is an archive book that documents eighteen architects’ final projects during 1980-2000. Gregorius elaborated that the initial idea of this book production sparked when the exhibition of Titik Awal 2017 was taking place. This book was written to spread the information towards a broader audience that hasn’t had the chance to visit the exhibition, as well as to provide a more comprehensive content. Hence, the book content includes three components: the final project’s archive, explanation, and interview transcript which complement the exhibition materials.

Rifandi added that the approach of conducting an interview was determined by OMAH Library to gain insights on the architect’s view towards his/her own final projects after many years of practicing as an architect. That makes the focus of this book not solely about the final project documentation but also an elaboration of events that happened during the making of the final project. This book then becomes a medium to recollect the selected architects’ journey of the process during different periods, with different curriculums.

The book launch also invited Ario Andito for a Bittersweet session as he shared about his process on his career. To him, working experience impacts him being an architect in terms of his working pattern and way of thinking. In the present, Ario is designing with his own approach named krowakism. One of his projects that was designed with this approach gained a Highly Commended acknowledgment during the World Architecture Festival (WAF) 2018.

Another Bittersweet session involved Ary Indra on the next day during the book launch event. Ary Indra recalled how he could get to this point of his career as an architect. He started as a student that actively participated in architecture design competitions. His fond of competition participation brings him to his latest achievement as the head curator of Indonesia Pavilion in Venice Architecture Biennale 2018.

Ary Indra also shares his experience in managing his architecture firm. He suggested that an architecture firm’s first project could determine the following projects that would come next. This happened to him as Ary did not plan to develop his architecture firm as a corporate. But since their initial projects included an apartment project, many of the following projects that they did were bigger scale projects that automatically needed a bigger team.

The book Titik Awal is available for purchase through OMAH Library Instagram.

OMAH Libary meluncurkan buku terbarunya yang berjudul Titik Awal, melalui rangkaian acara pada 8-9 Desember 2018. Peluncuran buku ini terdiri dari tiga sesi kegiatan, yang utama yaitu bedah buku Titik Awal oleh Ketua pameran Titik Awal 2017, Gregorius G. Gerard, serta tim editorial buku, Fiorent Fernisia Richtia, dan Rifandi S. Nugroho.

Buku Titik Awal merupakan buku arsip 18 karya tugas akhir arsitek generasi 1980-2000. Gregorius menjelaskan, ide awal penyusunan buku ini bermula ketika pameran Titik Awal 2017 sedang berlangsung. Buku ini disusun dengan maksud untuk membagi informasi lebih banyak kepada khalayak yang tidak sempat menghadiri pameran, serta keinginan memuat konten yang lebih komprehensif. Oleh karena itu, konten buku ini menjadi komplemen pameran Titik Awal 2017 yang terdiri dari tiga bagian yaitu, arsip tugas akhir, deskripsi tugas akhir, dan transkrip wawancara.

Rifandi menambahkan, pendekatan wawancara dipilih oleh tim OMAH Libary untuk mengupas lebih jauh pandangan arsitek mengenai tugas akhirnya sendiri setelah puluhan tahun berproses. Maka itu, fokus utama dari buku ini bukan murni mendokumentasikan tugas akhir itu sendiri, melainkan elaborasi cerita maupun peristiwa yang terjadi pada masa-masa tugas akhir. Buku ini tentu menjadi medium untuk menceritakan kembali perjalanan arsitek-arsitek dalam berproses di zaman yang berbeda, dengan kurikulum yang berbeda pula.

Peluncuran buku juga mengundang Ario Andito untuk sesi Bittersweet beurpa sharing tentang proses karir. Baginya, pengalaman kerja menjadi hal yang sangat berpengaruh untuk membentuk dirinya, baik dari pola kerja maupun pola pikir. Saat ini, ia memiliki pendekatan desain tersendiri, yaitu krowakism. Karyanya, Rumah Gerbong, yang menggunakan prinsip ini berhasil meraih Highly Commended project di World Architecture Festival (WAF) 2018.

Sementara itu, sesi Bittersweet dengan Ary Indra dilaksanakan di hari berikutnya. Untuk mencapai titik karier seperti sekarang, Ary Indra mengawalinya dengan aktif dalam sayembara sejak duduk di bangku kuliah. Kegemaran itu berlanjut hingga saat ini, ketika ia terpilih menjadi ketua kurator paviliun Indonesia di Venice Architecture Biennale 2018.

Ary Indra juga membagikan pengalamannya dalam menjalankan biro arsitek. Ia menganggap proyek pertama yang dikerjakan oleh biro arsitek sangat menentukan proyek-proyek yang datang selanjutnya. Hal ini dialaminya sendiri, pada awalnya Ary Indra tidak bercita-cita mendirikan biro arsitek berbentuk korporat. Namun karena proyek pertama yang dikerjakan adalah apartemen, maka proyek-proyek selanjutnya yang datang pada Aboday lebih banyak proyek berskala besar, sehingga membutuhkan tim yang lebih banyak.

Buku Titik Awal dapat dibeli langsung melalui Instagram OMAH Library.
