West Java Art and Cultural Centre - competition entry 2017
Silih Asah, Silih Asih, Silih Asuh is West Java’s noble value that highly relevant to creativity. The people of West Java are helping each other, working together, collaborating to achieve harmony in life. Like the ensemble of music, dance movements, gestures and theater mimic that is strung from small elements so as to create a beautiful masterpiece.
This collective harmonization are translated into the architectural concept of "Under One Roof" where a roof protects and connects a series of elements, functions, and movements to form a compound arrangement. This new structure generates an inviting building that connects artists, visitors, government, and West Java communities under one roof. Tropical environmental conditions with heavy rainfall and abundance of sunlight are responded with a large roof that capable of providing shade and rain protection in the open area.
Along with the cultural sustainability of the past that goes on at this time and for the future, the elements of form that are attached to the people of West Java are transformed to accommodate new functions. Bamboo - the riches of nature that are often composed to produce various structures and tools - represent the infinite creativity of the Sundanese society. Angklung was chosen because in addition to symbolize the above ideas, also became a medium to create new creativity.
