The 2011 Vienna Symposium aims to address the past, the present and the future of architecture, culture and identity in Indonesia, by focusing on vernacular building cultures, historic architectural monuments, as well as modern architecture and urban planning. We would like to discuss the existence and nature of Indonesia’s rich and diverse cultural heritage and modern symbolic architecture, as well as the meaning of building types, construction methods and building materials in context with geographic regions and cultures, time periods and socio-cultural systems.
A holistic understanding of architecture in the context of culture and identity requires an interdisciplinary approach. Scholars from related disciplines, Cultural and Social Anthropology, History and Art History, Archaeology, to name a few, are welcome to join the symposium.
The Institute of History of Art, Building Archaeology and Restoration at the Vienna University of Technology represents one of the very few European institutions in the field of non-Western Architectural traditions and has been conducting research on various regions in Southeast Asia. With the 2001 symposium we aim to strengthen the already existing network among European and Indonesian scholars, research institutions, and organisations that are involved in studies in this field. The discussions among experts of various subjects and countries will allow an interdisciplinary and international exchange of the most recent research and provide an insight into the position of architecture within the set of current cultural values.
