Another book I’m planning is on architecture of the publishing house Komunitas Bambu‘s new headquarters, designed by Yu Sing. It’s under construction, and might take another year (at least) to finish.
What interests me in this project is how the dialogue between client-architect, despite the toughness, can result in something entirely surprising for both parties. The fact that it’s a new twist on Betawi house (the original ethnic of Jakarta) doesn’t hurt.
This is an ambitious project, I just can hope to assist in the process by keeping up the steam ahead, so it can meet some (if not all) of its potentials.
