‘Samskriti’ which means ‘culture’ in Sanskrit contains every elements that made a civilization, including art. The idea of this design is to make a space that can preserve, promote and hopefully someday will produce its own culture. The design purpose is to create small-scaled exhibition spaces that combine indoor and outdoor and connect them with corridors, while keep respecting the ‘Sanga Mandala’ concept for the programming. Jimbaran is well known for the seaside landscape and culture, thus making it as the main inspiration for the design elements such as water feature to create seaside ambiance, the cream color of the hardscape which represents sandy beach, and the recycled boat timber used as the facade cover. This theme is a strong representation of Indonesia as a maritime nation. The project was selected for the top 15 entry of the Jimbaran Art and Culture Center Competition. It was a collaboration effort with Dicky Tanumihardja of Recode Nation and Amar Djihadsyah.
