URBAN RESILIENCE X GENERATIVE OPTIMISM
EVERY GREAT ARCHITECT IS NECESSARILY A GREAT POET. HE MUST BE A GREAT ORIGINAL INTERPRETER OF HIS TIME, HIS DAY, HIS AGE.
Frank Lloyd Wright
For me urban resilience is the result where every stakeholders and elements of society is at the level of experiencing the independent way of dwelling. In this case, urban resilience is referring to the way of how architecture can give chance for the society to dictate the space for their desirable activities. In daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly basis this condition can be tested whether it is successful or not. Architecture in this case will not only a space to do the activity, but as the generator of productivity. Therefore, the condition in the real world is different. Architecture are not yet driven by the society necessity, but it is driven by the media and money. This journal will testing out the ideas, where ideas are generate from the people as the user of space. Architecture today should represent the society, and create that optimism for creating urban resilience. Urban resilience as the result is the aim from the optimism that the architect should generate from his/her design. The journal is recording all the process of an architect to generate that optimism for Brisbane. RIZKIANSYAH
THE CHANGING LANE INITIATIVE The changing lane project is an initiative given by the students for Brisoane laneway. Brisbane laneway is considered dull and not interesting. By this exercise, student are expected to define what is the meaning of the laneway by representing it in the form of popup retail.
THE HYNES STREET SITE
The changing laneway project is giving the Hynes Street as salvation of Brisbane laneway. It is a challenging work as it goes to see how the laneway across the world in some way is driven by capitalism, which is not looking at the necessity of the people. Laneway becomes a part that is not important for the society, it is not engaging with the society, but make it fell apart. Thus, the group tried to tackle the issue by looking the popup retail as to trigger the societyâ€™s sensitivity of space.
WEEK 1 ENTRY
DRIVING THE SOCIETY MINDSET INDUSTRY MINDED COMMERCIALLY EXPENSIVE CLEAN AND TIDY MOSTLY NOT CROWDED IN DAILY BASIS CONTROLLED BY THE REGULATIONS ONLY HIGH LEVEL OF SOCIETY THAT CAN ENJOY IT LESS INTERACTION WITH OTHERS
JAKARTA ALLEY THE SOCIETY CLAIMS THE STREET CHEAP FOOD SENSITIVE FOR THE PEOPLE SOCIALLY IMPORTANT LOW ECONOMIC SELLER EVERYBODY CAN AFFORD IT ALLEY AS A PLACE FOR MEETING MUCH INTERACTION AND COMMUNICATION
WHAT WILL WE GONNA DO FOR BRISBANE? Both examples are having their plusses and minuses. Brisbane are part of Australia and have an exact of regulation, but there is something missing. People is still feeling that laneway is not important, while in Indonesia it is used for daily basis almost 24/7. In Indonesia, the low economic seller controls the economy, which is good, people are thinking creative to make small businesses that can be enjoyed by every layer of people of the city. We tried to adapt this sensitivity to Brisbane laneway as an idea to strengthened each economic layer as well as interacion between them.

WEEK 2 ENTRY
THE CONTOURED SITE The idea is to manipulate the contour of the site, because the group think that the proposed location is potential, as it becomes the intersection from the commercial, business and residential area. It is expected that the site can bring people in, and interact different condition of commercial, residential and business.
IDEAS AND OPTIONS Option 1. Grouped Retail
In acceptance of the contour site, this is the first idea that the group came up with. Therefore, we realised that the contour is not high enough to do this
Option 2. Stacked Timber
With the timber stacks, people can adjust it in order to do their desired activity.
Option 3. The Accordion
To make it stack but in one platform, we tried the accordion like, which can be longer to use.
Option 4. The Folded
Because we tried to have the space for many kinds of activity, we think that the retail can be flip like a book.
BRING FRESHNESS OUT OF THE BOX For the final design, we chose the timber stacks, because the material is easy to use. The main idea is that the people can adjust the timber stacks into their desired activity. People should work together and decide how they will arrange the timber stacks. With this scenario, people are expected to interact with each other, and finally they can have their own architectural aspiration for their space.

LEARNING FROM “BATIK”
LIVING NEAR FOREST
This pattern is the representation from the Indonesian craftsman that lived near the sea. We can see that the pattern is in soft color and fluid, just like the water.
Batik is the representation of experience or the process of patterning the condition they met everyday.
Natural expression is the main idea of this craft. Batik is Indonesian traditional Batik and be used daily to represent region or area.
FROM A SEQUENCE OF THESE INDIVIDUAL PATTERNS, WHOLE BUILDINGS WITH THE CHARACTER OF NATURE WILL FORM THEMSELVES WITHIN YOUR THOUGHTS, AS EASILY AS SENTENCES .
LIVING NEAR THE SEA
WEEK 4 ENTRY
The postcard that I used for my artefact is showing how all the patterns can mixed with each other, thus the craftman has represented the nature as part of their daily experience. In conclusion Batik has become their symbol of visualization that define the society, simply because they made it and wear it.
ARTEFACT 1: POSTCARD 8
GENERATING PATTERN FOR BRISBANE
WEEK 5 ENTRY
In order to save Brisbane from no architecture symbol of the city, for the Glenelg Street project, I tried to design what is the suitable symbol for Brisbane as a city and as big society. From this analysis, In a 25 km radius, I tried to interpret spatial experience that people going through to get into the site. Starting from their residential place, people experience 3 spatial qualities, building blocks, greeneries and the river flows. In this case, I tried to analyse and see whether the each spatial qiualities can be patternized in different ways. I was starting from patterning the site plan and abstracting it.
GENERATI VE PATTERN
THE NECESSITY OF THE SOCIETY If we see the point of destination, they are all architecturally appealing with the greeneries around and the view to the river. Therefore, for some people Southbank has given an image that it is only used for the high level society. In this case, if we look at the restaurants and boutiques, they are all expensive. This is creating a paradigm that Southbank is expensive yet only can be a place for tourists. Thus, if Southbank want to be the symbol of the city, there should be a representation that include the society as a whole.
WEEK 6 ENTRY
From this zoning, we can see how people uses the space in Southbank. The intensity, as I record in the diagram, Southbank is important for Brisbane as the recreational place, yet there is some places that is considered a waste such as the pool, because people did not use it in a daily basis or in winter season. The park and river view is the main areas that becomes people destination. Moreover, the buildings around such as the cinema, restaurants and boutiqes are mainly crowded only at weekends. In this analysis we can see that Southbank has not represent the society, it is still in economic monopoly that should be stop.
POINT OF DESTINATION
FORM SKETCHING 13
ORGANIC // POROUS From the pattern of the greeneries, I tried to translate the spatial experience being in different heights, just like walking at the trees.
FLUID // FLOWS The water pattern brought me to the fluid spaces for the site, it created flowing movement just like the river, it divide the spaces into series of tidal areas just llike wave.
HARD // STIFF The building patern is given the idea of stiff and hard which is solid. It is probably can be used for building cores and structures.
WEEK 7 ENTRY
RESEARCH AND INSPIRATION CLASSIC VORONOI DIVISION
SEMI ORTHOGONAL VORONOI DIVISION
ORGANIC // POROUS VORONOI PRINCIPLE With the finding of the organic and porous patter, i find Voronoi principle inspired me to see how each spaces connect with each other and then desirable programs of space is created from the process. VORONOI DIVISION 3D PLOTS
FLUID // FLOWS
HARD // STIFF INITIAL PATTERN FINDING
From this diagram I can see how each segment fits for people. Thus, from it, we can generate programs for the building with a very unique and innovative space manipulation. Image retrieved from http://www.makeahybrid.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/VerticalVillage03_voronoi-control.jpg
INITIAL MASSING URBAN SECTION
WEEK 8 ENTRY
CONCEPT TRIGGER The proposed idea is to create a mixed use building that can embrace the society for every level and age. The first floor is used for commercial and gathering area, the second floor used for retail and restaurant for small businesses, and the third floor is a private space for library and creative room. In other words, the building seek to endure productivity for Southbank and Brisbane as a whole. It is the place for collaboration and interaction.
THE FORGOTTEN ARTEFACT CONCEPT TRIGGER UNIQUE PATTERN INVITING COLORS ADAPTABLE WITH THE WEATHER SUCK BUGS IN TO GATHER INSIDE NATURAL DOME STRUCTURE DIFFERENT FROM THE ENVIRONMENT (DISTINCTIVE)

WEEK 9 ENTRY
SITE RYTHM FOR THE SITE From the artefact of the flower, I tried to develop it in my own language. The cylinder quality model is made to see how cylinder can gather people and create unique space. The rythm of the site is a 1:1000 site model to analyse how people movement to the site.
CYLINDER SPATIAL QUALITY
WEEK 10 ENTRY
From the model, I tried to make a scan through initial sketch. If we put people inside, we can see that a cylinder have a quality of focused area just like amphitheather. And this space like this is amazing in the point yhat it can be experienced to be as watcher or the one that be watched by people.
THE RYTHM OF THE SITE
WEEK 11 ENTRY
The site rythm model is a possibility of people movement through the site, we can see how the intentsity of people or movement of people before going to the site. The form it made is also interesting, if we put people in the sketch, the play of height is really dynamic and give people segments to interact. It is a very different concept from the cylinder scroing model.
VORONOI MODEL STUDY
WEEK 12 ENTRY
From this model, I tried to test out the Voronoi principle for space division and then I stacked them. The result is there are many interesting spaces inside, the main idea is to create the indoor, semi indoor and outdoor spaces. From this study model, it also shows that the segment is creating its own private and semi private spaces. The main principle of the model is to look at the first level proportion or division and the rest of the levels is constraints by the space created from the lower level. So I should have proper lower level before going up.
DESIGN DEVELOPMENT // DETAILED SEGMENT 1:50
WEEK 13 ENTRY
The detail showed how the space is used as library, the book storage is also using the pattern from the tree.
This is the inside look of the segment, it contains book storage and seating. We can see how the structure is made by steel and the floor is timber flooring.
The fin on the outside is creating a shading for the inside and keep the privacy level for readers.
DESIGN DEVELOPMENT // VIGNETTE
WEEK 14 ENTRY
This vignette is inspired by the tree movement. I tried to freeze the movement of the tree and created idea for the building facade. Itâ€™s dynamic is frozen as it becomes the fin for each segment of the building.
TREE MOVEMENT AND SHADE
THE GLENELG STREET PLAZA
WEEK 15 ENTRY
From the plan and the section, the building is using the outdoor and indoor spaces as its main feature.
PLAN AND SECTION
PERSPECTIVES At the context the building is very unique in forms but still be very simple with local materials
WEEK 15 ENTRY
From this perspective we can see the interior of the retail area. It is all porous so that people can move around to one store to another easily. The main feature of the building is also the collaboration and interaction spaces for each level, given people chance to communicate in privacy.
PLAN AND SECTION
GENERATIVE DESIGN FOR BRISBANE For me generative design is a an ideation of experience that can be a symbol or sign of something. The Glenelg Street Plaza is the example that can be a symbol of Brisbane. It becomes the spirit of the society for interaction and active collaboration. In context of urban resilience a productive society should have a reliable spot to dwell, in order to do that Southbank that have a high class image can be turned down. To have an important building that can represent Brisbane for a whole can should be incorporate all stakeholder and prevent monopoly. Just like the Indonesian batik, Brisbaneâ€™s society should incorporate this changes and proud with it, as aymbol of the city.
