As we continue to observe gathering restrictions during the pandemic in Indonesia by holding online FEX events, it has also become easier than ever for speakers from different regions to connect with a broader scope of professionals. Here are snapshots of project highlights from architects around the country, with technology reviews presented by Hunter Douglas; Indolok Bakti Utama; Granito; Mulia Ceramics; and NS Bluescope. All FEX sessions were graciously supported by the various chapters of the Indonesian Institute of Architects (IAI).

For this Surabaya session, the audience was treated to a presentation by the Bali-based firm IBUKU, known for their bamboo creations. Elora Hardy, the firm’s creative director, presented a recently completed project named Alchemy Yoga Studio, an open-air dome crafted out of black and yellow bamboo, covered with copper shingles. The next project was presented by Defit Wijaya, the acting head of architecture, who explained the process behind a multipurpose sports and assembly hall called The Arch. This project, with its distinctive parabolic arched roof, was a collaborative effort between IBUKU for the design; Jörg Stamm for the concept; and Atelier One/Neil Thomas for the engineering. As bamboo is a highly sustainable construction material and can be found abundantly in Indonesia, these kinds of innovative efforts for its design application could be inspirational for more firms to undertake.
