An­dra Matin is the first In­done­sian ar­chi­tect awarded at the Venice Ar­chi­tec­ture Bi­en­nale 2018

The Jakarta-based firm headed by ar­chi­tect An­dra Matin has been awarded one of two Spe­cial Men­tions by the jury of the Venice Ar­chi­tec­ture Bi­en­nale 2018: FREESPACE. This marks the first time that an In­done­sian ar­chi­tect has been awarded at the bi­en­nale. Matin’s show­case “El­e­va­tion” at the Arse­nale Corderie ex­plores the el­e­va­tional di­ver­sity in In­done­sia’s ver­nac­u­lar ar­chi­tec­ture. “The de­sign will bring vis­i­tors from one level to an­other with each level por­tray­ing a scale model of In­done­sia’s ver­nac­u­lar ar­chi­tec­ture,” ex­plained Matin in Jakarta a few days after re­ceiv­ing the award in early June in Venice. “The vast geo­graphic and cul­tural di­ver­sity of the coun­try in­spires me to ex­pose it this way,” he added.
