We’re delighted to announce that our Collaborative Project: Dermaga Kirana – PBS Ecological Park, East Belitung will take part as one of the architectural showcases that exhibit in Indonesian Architects Week Rio 2021. Come visit and join the event!!

Here’s the foreword from the IAWR 2021 organizer and curators:

This year, Indonesian Architects Week Rio 2021 (IAWR 2021) will run in parallel with the 27th UIA World Congress of Architects to be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Unlike previous IAWs, the COVID-19 pandemic has required IAWR 2021 to be held remotely. This is unprecedented.

Taking the pandemic safety protocol into consideration, the planning process and realization of the IAWR 2021 exhibition was carried out through a hybrid method of utilizing online communication and proceedings. The open calls, correspondences, presentations, curation and other organizing aspects of the IAWR 2021 designed to simultaneously maintain the integrity of the exhibition and protect the health and safety of the people involved during the pandemic. Indirectly, this exhibition presented a new form of connectedness between Indonesian architectural community in Indonesia and the world.

The IAWR 2021 exhibition is curated by Artiandi Akbar and Kamil Muhammad and features 66 works that are ready to be acessed online and offline. 2021 has generated different responses as well as reflections on how the architectural profession survives amid the global crisis. Through the exhibition, the curators attempt to understand the practice of architecture situated in a paradoxically connected yet alienating situation like today.
