Piece of White Light Black Shadow [Louis Kahn Lecture]

There were reasons to share Louis Kahn lecture for all of us. First, it showed the fundamental of the responsibility that architect should do, the ethic that we must always improve, and the passion for excellence which people should seize from the Architect. I discovered that the fundamentals taught Louis Kahn is the starter to be more beautiful than it was or at least that’s our duty to create the best institution of man we could offer.

White Light Black Shadow
…We were talking this afternoon
of the three aspects of teaching architecture.
Actually, I believe that I do not really teach architecture
but that i teach myself.
These, however, are the three aspects:
The first aspect is professional.
As a professional you have the obligation of
learning your conduct in all relationships…
in institutional relationships,
and in your relationship with men who
entrust you with work.
In this regard, you must know the distinction
between science and technology.
The rules of aesthetics also constitute professional knowledge.
As a professional, you are obliged to translate
the program of a client into that of the spaces of
the institution this building is to serve.
You might say it is a space order,
or a space-realm of this activity of man
which is your professional responsibility.
A man should not take the program
and simply give it to the client
as though he were filling a doctor prescription.
Another aspect is training a man to express himself.
This is his own prerogative.
He must be given the meaning of philosophy,
the meaning of belief, the meaning of faith.
He must know the other arts…
architect must learn that they have other rights…
their own rights.
To learn this, to understand this,
is giving the man the tools for making the incredible
that which nature cannot make.
The tools make a psychological validity,
not just a physical validity,
because man, unlike nature, has choice.
Louis I Kahn Conversations with Students, Architecture at Rice 26, Princeton Architectural Press. pp31-32

Among recent college grads, architecture majors by far have the highest unemployment rate at 13.9%. That’s according to a new report from the Georgetown Center on Education and the Workforce. The collapse of the construction and home-building industries in the recession is to blame. Even after gaining years of experience, architecture grads ages 30 and up, have a high unemployment rate at 9.2%. [CNN@2012]

2nd Lecture Series :

Almost always the men who achieve these fundamental inventions of a new paradigm have been either very young or very new to the field whose paradigm they change. — Thomas S. Kuhn

Dalam sejarah arsitektur, keragaman paradigma dalam desain adalah salah satu cara untuk melihat keragaman dalam berarsitektur. Dimana kita menjadi manusia yang lekat dengan tradisi berpikir, berargumentasi, pemilihan keputusan desain berdasarkan pertimbangan – pertimbangan empiris dan rasional yang matang. Proses untuk mencipta ini yang kemudian menjadi penting, karena adanya kekreatifan dalam proses mendesain. Proses dimana kita bisa mendapatkan pelajaran yang lebih baik, sehingga untuk pada saatnya mendesain nanti bisa memberikan desain yang lebih baik dibandingkan sebelumnya. Proses berpikir ini yang kita coba gali dari dua orang dari generasi muda, Ivan Nasution dan Rizki Supratman. Ivan yang berkerja di NUS [National University of Singapore] dan Rizki yang berkerja sebagai di OMA [Office for Metropolitan Architecture] satu biro yang didirikan oleh Rem Koolhas. Sharing pengalaman dari kedua orang ini diharapkan bisa membawa dialog yang akan membawa peserta untuk memahami dunia arsitektur lebih dalam dalam lingkup teori dan praktik. 2nd session copy

Ahmad Rida Soemardi

“Learn from me, for as I teach, I learn from you as well! Always be accountable to yourself and take complete responsibility for your own life. No one can do as much for you, as you can do for yourself…”
― James A. Murphy

Beliau datang di sidang ke 3 di masa – masa tugas akhir hampir 10 tahun yang lalu , di pertengahan jalan proses di tugas akhir, di tengah perjalanannya untuk menempuh PHD di Australia, ia pulang. Kita sendiri ada ber 4 dengan teman – teman satu kelompok yang lain, ada Nisa, Gamma, dan Herman dengan Pembimbing pribadi diri ini adalah pak Baskoro Tedjo. Pada waktu itu hari – hari  asistensi dengan beliau diisi dengan mencoba memecahkan kesulitan yang ada di bangunan lengkung yang bertabrakan dengan axis yang tegas. Kemudian beliau berkata, “saya tahu kamu pasti bisa, coba kamu lihat Christian De Pontzamparc.” Baru juga tahu ada arsitek yang bernama demikian, dan lebih merasa bersemangat karena beliau antusias dan yakin akan apa yang sedang dcari. Inilah satu titik awal, dimana kepercayaan diri itu mulai ada dalam perancangan tugas akhir.

Beliau pun ada ketika pada akhir sidang, semua sudah selesai, beliau menanyakan bagaimana perasaan setelah melewati sidang ini didepan penguji – penguji yang lain. Pada akhirnya beliau berdiri dan bertepuk tangan. Tidak pernah membayangkan bisa mendapatkan momentum seperti itu. Beliau pun ada ketika hari demi hari berdiskusi sebagai tempat untuk pulang. Beliau ada disitu. Begitupun ketika berpapasan, bersalaman bercanda gurau menjadi satu kebiasaan, ia selalu berkata, “I know you will do the best.”

Beliau juga ada pada saat diri ini meneruskan S2 di Australia, pak Tata meneruskan S3 dan diri ini  dengan S2. Ada juga saat – saat yang berkesan dimana kita diminta mbak Ade Tinamei untuk membuat video untuk ultah PSUD juga untuk pak Danisworo, berkeliling ke satu jurusan mencari Prof Jon Lang, Alex Tzanes, ataupun staff – staff yang lain untuk membuat jaringan baru.

Pada waktu itu, terkaget bukan kepalang diberi tahu satu adik di kantor bahwa, Pak Tata meninggal. Kesedihan pun datang. Beliau yang selalu ada untuk tempat pulang. Pak Tata sendiri ada pada waktu S2 di Sydney, sekitar seminggu satu kali biasa kami makan siang sambil ngobrol apapun, akademis ataupun pengalaman konyol sehari – hari. Dari situ beliau menempatkan dirinya sebagai satu pribadi yang penuh kehangatan. Pak Tata adalah satu pribadi yang suka untuk mendengarkan sekitarnya, sehingga terkadang- kadang ia tidak punya waktu untuk dirinya sendiri.

Kali ini Diri ini kembali tidak bisa hadir pada acara Tribute to Ahmad Rida Soemardi pada saat Artepolis kemarin karena ada hal yang benar – benar mendesak di Jakarta. Kali lain pun  tidak bisa menepati janji untuk bertemu dengan pak Tata dan berterima kasih untuk segala ilmu yang diberikannya, apalagi teladan sikap yang ditunjukkannya dengan tanpa kompromi. Tulisan ini dibuat untuk bisa berterima kasih terhadap pak Tata, ada usahanya dalam memberikan kebaikan terhadap orang lain, dan membuat terpacu untuk meneruskan yang baik yang sudah beliau rintis. Untuk meneruskan perjuangan pak Tata akan ketulusannya untuk mendidik dan berbuat tanpa pamrih. Pribadi ini adalah satu pribadi yang langka, seorang guru yang seutuhnya yang dicintai.

Tidak banyak orang yang bisa meledakkan semangat seseorang dalam berkarya, seperti seorang guru kepada muridnya, ia tidak berharap banyak, ia hanya berharap yang diajarkannya bisa diamalkan yang kalau – kalau memungkinkan untuk terbang tinggi dan beruntung bisa mendapatkan seorang guru seperti beliau. Terima kasih Pak Tata, tulisan ini hanya ingin membuat orang mengenal , dan meneruskan pengajaran Pak Tata, sama seperti apa yang akan coba teruskan apa yang sudah diajarkan.

There comes a point in your life when you realize who really matters, who never did, and who always will.
– Unknown

terima kasih juga untuk panitia Artepolis yang sudah berkerja sangat keras untuk meneruskan apa yang sudah dirintis oleh Pak Tata. Pak Aswin Indraprastha, Bu Indah Widiastuti, Indra, Reina, dkk [maaf tidak bisa menyebutkan satu persatu]
