The fifth largest population in the world is rapidly expanding. For the past seven decades, both Indonesian and international architects have developed new ideas in order to fulfill the demands of the country s 250 million inhabitants, in line with economic progress. Imelda Akmal s Architectural Guide Indonesia presents over one hundred must-visit buildings which date from the post-independence era (1945) to the present day. The book explores buildings that still embrace traditional Indonesian architectural heritage as well as those whose design is based on practical considerations, thus offering a valuable insight into the works of emerging and established architects. Each project is illustrated with stunning color photographs and detailed information to facilitate an understanding of its historical and political context."
