Tidar University Rectorate

Central Java, Jakarta
2017

Inspired by traditional Javanese culture and shape, the new rectorate office of Tidar University will be a "tetenger"-the icon. This new icon deeply rooted on the local Javanese culture, yet at the same time incorporating contemporary idea of space and educational culture.

The local "wayang" shadow play reflected in the ray of light and shadow projected through the secondary screen, which has a basic shape of Javanese building anatomy.
