EVERYDAY AND ARCHITECTURE: ORIGIN


This was my assignment from a class when I was an architecture student. I post this because it suddenly came to my mind. The name of class is 'Everyday and Architecture' which is in the class, we have discussed about everyday life and its related to an architecture life. Everyday life is a common life, we do it everyday, it is habitual and somehow we do not realize how important is or how it giving us affect, ect. Through this class, we learn about practice of everyday life which is common but if they disappear, it will doesn't mean anything. One of topic that we discussed is about origin. As an assignment to complete mid-term, we were asked to create one thing from our origin. Yes, every student in the class is came from different origin. Even they raised in Jakarta, a big city with an acculturation in it, each them should be taught with different culture as their parent's origin. I, actually have raised in Jakarta and all of my family is growth in Jakarta also. It was hard to found the thing that is came from my origin and I could show the process of making it on the class. Like I have written in my report, I was asked my cousin that she has been living in the neighborhood where my parents, my aunties, may uncles, and also me when I was a kid lived. Most of people that living in that neighborhood have lived there for a long time, even from their grand-grand parents and now they have children. I was thinking about making a thing that I have seen in when someone holding a wedding ceremony. It is called 'Kembang Uang' because the shape resemble the flower but it has money as a flower. Ordinarily, the host of the wedding will provide 'Kembang Uang' to family members or guests who has came to the ceremony. I remember it well, when I was a kid, I have experienced to get one of 'Kembang Uang' and it was struggled to get that. Actually, it was fun and it was one of memorable thing that I have before in this time we hard to find that culture easily. That assignment from the class gave us a learning to aware about our culture, our origin. Simple but that thing has created our society, with or without we realized. :)

MEMBAHAS JATUH

Buku ini memang sepertinya belum siap untuk dibaca, belum selesai ditulis. Atau mungkin terlau banyak kata yang ditulis hingga bahkan gue sendiri yang menulisnya pun bingung cara membaca seperti apa. Terlalu banyak coretan sana sini yang kadang bikin sebuah paragraph jasi rancu, salah? Biar, buku ini menjadi buku atas segala perencanaan perjalanan gue yang penuh banyak koreksi sebagai pembelajaran. Karena kata orang yang namanya belajar kalau gak jatuh itu gak “afdol” rasanya, justru semakin banyak jatuh maka semakin banyak kita belajar. Jadi, mari terjatuh dengan indah.

Membahas tentang jatuh dengan indah yang bahkan ketika saat ini berpikir untuk menulis di blog ini, gue belum tahu pasti topik apa yang ingin gue tulis. Then menemukan kata “jatuh” yang sepertinya menarik untuk dibahas. Jatuh? Jadi dari mana kita mulai? Definisi. Yang paling sederhana, gue dapat dari kamus besar Bahasa Indonesia yang di dalamnya dituliskan sebagai berikut.

Ja.tuh 
  1. v (terlepas dan) turun atau meluncur ke bawah dengan cepat karena gravitasi bumi (baik ketika masih dalam gerakan turun maupun sesudah sampai ke tanah dan sebagainya): tabung kaca itu -- dan hancur 
  2.  v turun banyak (harga, nilai, dan sebagainya); merosot: harga mobil di pasar bebas –
  3. v sampai ke ...; tiba di ...; kena pada ...; tembus ke ...; ditujukan ke: jalan kecil ini -- ke Kampung Ambon; sindiran itu --nya kepada saya 
  4.  v bertepatan dengan; berbetulan dengan; tepat pada: proklamasi kemerdekaan Republik Indonesia -- pada hari Jumat, tanggal 17 Agustus 1945 
  5. v berhenti memegang kekuasaan (tentang pemerintah, kabinet, dan sebagainya)
  6. v bangkrut (tentang toko, kongsi, dan sebagainya)
  7. v kalah atau dirampas musuh (kota, benteng, dan sebagainya) 
  8.  v tidak lulus (dalam ujian); gagal (dalam usaha); sangat menderita (rugi, sengsara, dan sebagainya)
  9. v tidak tahan lagi (oleh godaan, penderitaan, cobaan, dan sebagainya)
  10. v menjadi (sakit, miskin, cinta, dan sebagainya): -- miskin

EPISODE HIDUP SI KATAK - SI TIPE YANG PEMIKIR

Well, selalu memikirkan apa yang akan dilakukan kadang menyenangkan dan kadang kebalikannya, super menyebalkan. Gak pernah sedetik pun gue berpikir menjadi seseorang yang lets say disebut 'pemikir' adalah menyenangkan, karena dibanding menyenangkannya gue lebih merasa lelah dengan otak gue yang kadang (sangat sering sepertinya) gak sinkron dengan hati gue. Walaupun bukan terlalu buruk karena setiap hal mungkin lebih baik ketika gue rencanakan dengan mempertimbangkan baik atau buruknya which is di setiap pengambilan keputusan, gue akan tau pasti hal baik yang akan gue dapet dan hal buruk yang akan gue dapet juga. Tentu yang baik memang jadi tujuan di setiap rencana tetapi yang buruk adalah resiko yang pasti ada (mengiringi) di setiap mengambil keputusan. Entah orang disekitar gue paham dengan cara gue atau memang gue yang sulit dimengerti, atau mungkin biarlah mereka mengerti sejauh mereka mau mengerti.

Menurut gue pribadi, si tipe pemikir ini mungkin terlalu banyak punya impian yang besar dalam waktu singkat bahkan dia akan bermimpi jauh ke depan melampaui yang lainnya, tapi lagi-lagi itu semua hanya ada dalam pikirannya. Caranya? Ya, (lagi-lagi) harus kembali dipikirkan. Keputusan tentang cara untuk mewujudkan mimpinya merupakan keputusan final yang dengan segala kemungkinan, entah itu baik atau buruknya sudah dipertimbangkan sebelumya. Ketika proses berpikir akan muncul beberapa hipotesis yang mendukung atau menolak si pemikir ini mengambil keputusan. Rasanya ribet? Ya, kenyataannya memang ribet. Mungkin orang-orang disekitar lo akan se-kesel itu melihat lo terlalu "ribet" ketika hanya tentang mengambil sebuah keputusan.

(AGAIN) INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE IN UI? INTERIOR DESIGN? SIMILAR?


It is my junior's youtube channel. We were in the same school in Junior High School. He is now an interior design student in Telkom University, Bandung. A while ago, I was asking by him to join his vlog. Ya, he told me that he has been started to do vlogging, like most of people do right now. He want to share about his life especially in his field in interior design. And about he contacted me to do shooting the vlog, he told me that he was curious about the idea of a interior design and interior architecture in Indonesia. So he asked me because I studied 4 years in interior architecture program in University of Indonesia. I think it is a common issue, we as an interior design students and we as an interior architecture students (especially in UI) realize that we have a different way to solve a design problem. Ya, the topic that would be talked in the video. Actually, I didn't talk as an expert or anything you call it, it was just my experiences sharing and my conclusion so far after I  met another persons in the same field, one of them is my boss who has studied in Aussie, RMIT, Melbourne. We have shared about the way he studied in his school, and so am I. The conclusion is what he learned at the school in Melbourne and what their teachers teach about interior design are similar with my teachers did in University of Indonesia. Even though the program is not with the name of 'Interior Architecture' but that is an 'Interior Design' in RMIT, Melbourne. Ya, my big question is what is the definition 'Interior Design' in Indonesia, we've agreed both programs are different but after all we will work in the same area as an Interior Designer ?

p.s. I havan't watched it all, I am not ready to watch me on youtube and hear my silly arguments in there. Haha
Please don't mind my mistakes, I've said that it was just my opinions.
