* Architecture: University of Indonesia Central Library by Denton Corker Marshall

Architecture: University of Indonesia Central Library by Denton Corker Marshall: “..Conceived as earth architecture, it cleverly integrates building and landscape to become an occupied tropical landform..A series of towers projects from the landform. Conceptually, they take inspiration from the ancient Indonesian practice of inscribing wisdom on stone tablets. The traditional reference makes the leap into modern day Indonesia as a series of abstracted stone tablets – ‘prasasti’ – rising from the circular grass-covered earth mound. The granite clad tablets of varying heights are ‘carved’ with narrow glazed bands allowing filtered light into the volumes below..”  Cultural and historical sensibility, striking presence..
