Learning from Mangunwijaya


learning from mangunwijaya

3 May 2024 to 31 December 2024

Learning from Mangunwijaya focuses on the architectural heritage of Yusuf Bilyarta Mangunwijaya (1929–1999), an Indonesian Catholic priest, writer, political activist, and architect. Mangunwijaya’s architectural legacy was shaped significantly by his studies in Aachen, Germany.

This project examines the enduring impact of his ideas on current generations of Indonesian architects and their relevance to contemporary developments in the region. Through a student workshop, exhibition, documentary, and symposium, Learning from Mangunwijaya aims to contextualize his work in the present day and foster broad local, regional, and international engagement.

Design Partnership

Southeast Asian Modernism

Encounters with Southeast Asian Modernism sheds light on the history, significance and future of socially relevant design ideas of postcolonial modernism in the region and addresses them in the context of the Bauhaus centenary 2019 in Germany. With partners in four selected cities – Jakarta, Phnom Penh, Singapore and Yangon – Encounters explores the impact of modernism at the crossroads between early globalisation, local conditions, political upheaval and the search for an independent identity, starting with the period of upheaval that accompanied the transition to independence after colonial times.

Re-act Lab


Re-act Lab: São Paulo Architecture Experiment
with ANCB Research Partners Elisabete França and the Secretaria Municipal de Habitação of the city of São Paulo (Sehab) and S.L.U.M. Lab Columbia University, New York
12 – 22 August 2010


The ANCB series Re-act Lab has a potential-focused rather than problem-focused agenda. It confronts the particular challenges of cities or regions throughout the world by facilitating transdisciplinary enquiry into appropriate and responsible actions in architecture and urbanism. This 10-day Re-act Lab research studio will introduce a group of advanced students from across the world to the realities of Brazilian cities and provide the wider public with internal and external perspectives on these. In a series of public lectures and discussions the studio will: introduce São Paulo’s metropolitan area by revealing the contrasting morphologies and urban tissues produced over time; address the critical role of everyday life in the experience of urban space; question the possibilities created for architecture and urban planning when housing basic municipal services-key structures in improving quality of urban life; and highlight the need to develop partnerships between the city planning authorities and urban pioneers, in order to build liveable cities at the beginning of the 21st century.
