When Jeghier Architect was selected through an architectural competition with several renowned designers in Indonesia, we believed that an architectural work is more than just a building with utility. It is a structure that has transformed into monumental objects with a great beauty of composition.
It is only natural that a debate arises between those who view architecture as the 'Mother of Arts' and those who insist that architecture is solely a matter of 'Function x Economy.' Consequently, the assessment of aesthetics in the concept of architecture is influenced by many factors. The issue of 'trends' further complicates the crystallization of this concept.
As a mere consumer satisfaction product, the recent 'skin' of buildings has been passionately packaged in various styles that are currently 'in,' resulting in a cacophony of conflicting impacts.
The boom in constructing architectural objects that may seem impressive but lack meaning is also occurring. Buildings with the most stylish 'costumes' grab public attention. Their creators then showcase their work by embellishing it with labels like post-modernism, neo-classic, high-tech, or deconstruction.
However, architecture is not merely about comparing and judging whether something is good or bad. It is not an art full of mysteries. An architect must reconcile and unite so many conflicts into a life that is also complex and rich. That's why architecture becomes the art with the broadest reach compared to others."
