The idea of this project is frame the living and frame the art. For the living, it is to give a prestige feeling, because the site is located in a high-prized land, therefore they need to feel that it is worth it to buy this apartment. For the art, in Bandung there are a lot of talented artist, but so few of them have the courage to become an artist. It is because an artist's seen as a not stable job. There is no prestige of being an artist. That's why in the public area there will be a giant masterpiece of art that framed by the building itself. This frame also act as a public space that connected the urban area from two sides.
This project of apartment and Bandung art center placed at the urban area. This project focused on 3 things. How the living spaces are made, how the mixed use made the space in the podium area, and how the urban area designed, which can be connected 2 main public area in the district.
The details of this project focused on the structure, which is the main reason why this form can be created. This building use a interspatial truss which will be shown in the facade. The interspatial truss hold a cable column which hold the tensile load.
This is a studio project that I made with the help of my mentor, Dr. Rahadhian Prajudi Herwindo, IAI.
