CAS, CRCS, and CADL buildings at Bandung Technology Institute (ITB)

Bandung, West Java, Indonesia

The main idea of the three buildings design at Bandung Technology Institute (ITB) is to explore the potential of in-between space between formal teaching-learning space and public space, between the "object" and the "ground". This will provide an "event space"--a fluid space that accomodate the overflow of formal activities, offering space that promote interaction and communication. The "stuffed" ground elevate the plaza and public space, bring it into the "interior" of the building. Solid and void are entangled in a fluid continuous differentiation throught out the buildings. This new educational buildings will bring a new dimension of teaching and learning culture.
