LEARNING FROM COLONIAL ARCHITECTURE IN SURABAYA:
H.L.J.M. ESTOURGIE ARCHITECT PROJECTS
Organized by Department of Architecture, Petra Christian University, and partially financed by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands
Surabaya has rich architectural heritage, and some of them are the Dutch colonial buildings. As cultural heritage, the Dutch colonial buildings certainly have values that simply as a set of positive characteristics perceived in the buildings, such as historic values associated with people or events; aesthetic values of visual qualities and sensory experience, social values including spiritual, political; and economic or market values. Values of every historic building are unique, with its own distinctive character that refers to the appearance of the overall shape of the building, its materials, craftsmanship, decorative details, interior spaces and features, as well as its site and environment. The workshop is carried out to identify and document those distinctive character through site visits revealing a uniqueness of historic buildings especially buildings designed by H.L.J.M. Estourgie architects (1925-1957). Unlike many renowned Dutch architects in Indonesia, such as C. P. Wolff Schoemaker, Thomas Karsten, Henri Maclaine Pont, Eduard Cuypers, M.J. Hulswit, C. Citroen, H.L.J.M. Estourgie architect is almost unknown to architecture academic sphere in Indonesia. Consequently, H.L.J.M. Estourgie projects are selected for this workshop trying to reveal the distinctive character of his building to the public. Certainly, architecture students could learn from these colonial buildings of its uniqueness and values, and gain knowledge about the past that will inspire expression for future design of new buildings.
The objectives of this workshop are:
· To identify style and overall visual character of a building and its setting.
· To document what have been changed in time, additions and elimination of the building elements, and how it was used and conserved.

In Surabaya, the old city centre has rich architectural heritage, and one of them is the Dutch colonial building. As cultural heritage, the Dutch colonial buildings certainly have values that simply as a set of positive characteristics or qualities perceived in the buildings or sites, such as historic values (association with people or events, rarity or uniqueness, material’s age, educational value), aesthetic (visual qualities and sensory experience), social (including spiritual, political, and national), and economic values (use or market). Accordingly, value of every old building is unique, with its own identity and its own distinctive character. Character refers to all those visual aspects and physical features that comprise the appearance of every historic building including the overall shape of the building, its materials, craftsmanship, decorative details, interior spaces and features, as well as the various aspects of its site and environment. In today’s context and through time, however, the historic buildings have been changed to new uses and needs such as additions of air-cooling system, fire alarm systems, waters and electricity utility systems. Subsequently, architecture students could learn from these colonial buildings of its values, and to gain knowledge about the past in the future through for conservation and design of new buildings.

Kampongs in most South East Asian cities are currently known as living spaces of poor people for their survival in left over spaces in big cities. However, these kampongs have their own significant contribution to the cities in many aspects, such as history, economics and politics. Therefore, studying kampongs is not only exploring the physical condition, but also understanding their significance in terms of social condition. Understanding living spaces such as kampongs should be based on exploring physical condition, which are spaces, as social production (theory by Henri Lefebvre 1991 and Edward Soja 1996).
Regenerating kampongs as the topic of 2016 workshop means contributing and proposing architectural design based on an understanding of the kampongs’ spaces as the production of social aspect. The workshop will explore several kampongs in Surabaya that have strong history with the city of Surabaya, such as Keputran, Ampel, and Bubutan. The workshop will also provide series of lectures from architectural, social and historical point of views, including from local people of the kampongs.
