the urban conga light installation aspired me to investigate light and shadow as the elements to create certain spatial experience. through the installation, it can be seen that shadow could be created and changed by using several intervention such as distance change of object, screen and light source; object addition, and object subtraction.

above: urban conga light installation

this project proposes a shadow spatial experience in order to educate the society how inconvenient it would be if the city gets more populated rapidly. the spatial experience is created through shadows which visually performs issue of the society so the people will understand the message easier without feeling like being informed directly.

above: model study and transformations through distance change

above: model study and transformations through addition and subtraction

bringing the different kind of interventions, led me to three kind of shadows formed which are mirroring, receding, and immensing. then, this type of shadows is combined with a narrative scenario in order to create a whole new spatial experience.

above: model study of sequences where shadows are created from narrative

“shadows are graphically powerful and traditionally have sinister overtones. in


(the a-z of visual, john ingeldew) the spatial experience is aimed to provide the direct scenario so that the users feel like they are part of the narrative as a particular role. the narration is allured through shadows regarding the space programme.


undergraduate final-project individual dramati(c)ity : intertwining form shadow and narration as a method in designing interior architecture (achieved straight A’s in research and design)


the sequences are based on the general steps inside drama which consist of exposition (introduction), climax, and resolution.

above: the search of scenario in a frame of populated area

through a frame of high density situation, sequences are found. these become a gradual change that forms a scenario. through some shadow techniques mentioned before. shadows and narration then come up as a unity to perform a live spatial experience. this is 70% of human receptors is functioned as visual receptor (a natural history of the senses, diane ackerman).

the beginning is the approaching stage where all the patterns are still arranged in order. the form is mostly dominated by the geometrical shape in this stage.

after that, there is turning, recrystallizing and receding stage where all the combat of the shadow starts. the patters are the fractal, sharp, and anorganic ones. when it comes to the resolution, the shadow is back to become rearranged again. natural shape sharp shape dissolves.

above: site models

the purpose of this project is to make an intervention that could be placed in 3 different sites with different characteristics as well. the sites are under hungerford bridge, seven dials monument (square), parliament hill (hampstead heath). nature and human potentials from the sites were discovered such as sunlight that could create shadows, surroundings’ view that could only be seen from upper spot or additional equipments, and the crowd of the people including their pattern of circulation. above: basic structure of porta-place

porta-place team (built pavillion)


explorations were made in order to create as many as possibilities to answer the challenge of each issues that come from different sites. in order to accommodate all the needs therefore and idea of making a portable pavillion came up. through some basic movements such as rotation and dilation, this pavillion anwers the contextual issues. those basic movements are also complete the design as a porta-place.

there was an interesting metaphore about time management. if time given was a bottle, then the activities were divided into 3 such as rocks, sand, and water. the most solid among all, rock, was at the top of priority. sand following by water are less urgent eventually.the order of

then there would be enough space for all the materials. but if there was no order, the materials together. so, the metaphore tried to deliver message that people should start doing the activities from the most urgent ones in order to get as much as things done.

such materials result different effects. i found that this is also applicable in designing interiority to begin with the skin as structure and concerning the layout from the widest space. above: exploration models to answer the contextual issues

to think a lot about the skin and not to cross the border. the result was pretty obvious that starting from the skin made (see the last experiment). this showed that it is very important to always go back to the skin in designing.

the objective of this project is to design a furniture regarding the site context. the site is a lobby that is functioned 24/7 not only as a meeting point, but also as a place for students to do their work. the students usually sit on laptops. seeing this phenomena as an issue, then idea to design a furniture to accompany their working time came up. having fun while working? why not?

above: square chair

the main function of this furniture is for seating. in addition, this furniture resembles how legos transform so that the users can play with the modules while adjusting their own physical needs such as something for back to lean, something for changing the way people sit in quite long duration, etc.

the project was about to design the interior of a moslem local bank in sukabumi, west java. since it is a moslem local bank, green as the color scheme was chosen. this project was pretty challenging since the space was not really large.

above: design adjustment of body dimension

then, i tried to choose a different approach which i interviewed all the staff because the number was not that many. i also measured one by one the position dimension for doing activities while working. as a result, i found that some furniture could use different usual dimension. that was an adventage since it could give more comfort for the staffs to work which eventually increase the effectivity of work.
