Summary

The New Indonesian House presents twenty-eight homes in Jakarta, Bandung, Yogyakarta and Bali that illustrate the remarkable advances that have taken place in residential design in Indonesia over the last two decades. From the fundamental pre 1990 issue - how to modernise while maintaining a core of cultural identity-Indonesia's new generation of architects has moved on, demonstrating not only their absorption of modern influences from the West and the more recent processes of globalisation but also their sensitivity to the physical environment, the social context and the aspirations of the leading elite. The result is a level of refinement, sophistication, individuality and environmental awareness in their house designs that is comparable with the best in the world.
