Balinese style villas and resorts are popping up everywhere—from Ibiza to St Barts to Singapore. But what is Balinese architecture? And why is it so popular today? Traditional Balinese houses, temples and pavilions are designed to allow man to exist in harmony with the natural forces of the universe—reflecting core Balinese beliefs about man's place in relation to the cosmos, the gods, the ancestors, and the world around him. Innovative local and Western architects have been designing resorts and villas on Bali for decades, drawing their inspiration from these local traditions. In this one-of-a-kind book, author Julian Davison provides a comprehensive guide to Balinese architectural forms, the Balinese belief system, the rituals associated with building, the materials and construction techniques, and the intricate ornamentation used. Over 100 watercolor illustrations and photographs provide a clear picture of the island's architecture as well as an eye-opening look at a culture and a people that have captivated the world's imagination.

Balinese Architecture is a step-by-step guide to the intricacies of Balinese architecture. Traditional Balinese don't live in houses in the conventional sense of the word. Instead, they divide their daily activities between a number a different pavilions which are situated within a family compound that is secluded from the outside world b a high wall Although these living arrangements may seem at first to be a fairly haphazard affair, they are actually grounded in a complex metaphysical system which provides a cosmological framework for maintaining harmonious relations between man and the rest of the universe. This Balinese guide takes a detailed look at this fascinating architectural tradition with watercolor illustrations, designs and extensive commentary.

For the Balinese, everything has its correct place in the world, with the gods on high, malevolent spirits in the lowest regions, and mankind sandwiched between the two. This cosmological framework influences not only the domestic architecture of the Balinese but also their palaces and pavilions-and the myriad of temples which are scattered throughout the island. Rank and social status, the needs of the village and of the extended family, and the tropical climate also play a part. This book is intended to provide the visitor to Bali with a step-by-step guide to the complexities of Balinese domestic and religious architecture. The Balinese belief system, rituals associated with building, building materials and construction techniques, and the intricate ornamentation of buildings are among the topics covered. Watercolor illustrations of panoramas, important sites, building types, design concepts, and construction techniques complement a concise, informative text and help to elucidate the meaning of many of the places that visitors will see during a stay on the island.

This book brings together complex fields of knowledge and globally splintered discourses on a subject that is experienced not only by scholars, but in the everyday lives of people around the world. There is a common complaint about the loss of identity which, to a substantial degree, is being associated with the built environment in cities and specifically with their architecture. "Architecture and Identity" takes a global, multidisciplinary look on how identities in contemporary architecture are constructed. The general hypothesis underlying this book is that in a globalized world identity in architecture cannot be easily derived from distinct indigenous patterns. The book presents forty contributions from various disciplines aiming to destroy the myth of an inheritable or otherwise prefabricated identity. Some authors dismantle constructs of identity that have long been considered as "solid" and unbreakable while others meticulously unravel the "construction" process of identities in

In her research Yulia Nurliani Lukito analyses modernity and the construction of culture by the authorities using the images of Indonesian vernacular architecture presented at three different sites and times. She argues that modernity is not solely constructed by the authorities, rather it is an ongoing process modified by visitors of exhibitions. Pasar Gambir was a laboratory of modernity for the colony, and an important stage in modernizing and negotiating cultural and social conditions in the colony. The Dutch Pavilion at the 1931 colonial exhibition became a moment when the Indies heritages played a role in marking colonial territory. Modern ethnographic park of Taman Mini gives a way to the making of an official ‘authentic’ culture and suppresses the previous Dutch construction of the Indies culture.

This historiographic study of K'tut Tantri - alias Vannen Walker, the journalist from the Isle of Man; Muriel Pearson, the unhappy wife; and Surabaya Sue, the notorious revolutionary - compares her romantic and colorful autobiography, Revolt in Paradise, with other versions of her past, including those of her fellow Bali colonists and her revolutionary comrades, as well as her foes, the Dutch, and various intelligence organizations. These alternatives accounts of her past question the image of K'tut Tantri as hero, portraying her instead as dishonest, unstable, egotistical, and immoral. Such criticisms have overshadowed proper recognition of her role in the development of modern Indonesia, both as a bohemian hotelier in between-wars Bali and later as propaganda broadcaster and adviser to Indonesian revolutionary leaders including Soekarno, Sutomo, and Syarifuddin. Focusing on the nature of biography and autobiography, this book analyses K'tut Tantri's self-defeating battle to use history - in text and film script - to define her identity and reappropriate her past. An examination of the use of ideas of "truth" and "fiction" in understanding the past leads to broader consideration of the nature of history and its uses. Finally, an attempt is made to reconcile the deconstruction of K'tut Tantri's autobiography with both an acceptance of the validity of "alternative" historical genres and an acceptance of the problems inherent in writing a history of a living person. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Timothy Lindsey is Professor of Law, Director of the Asian Law Centre, Director of the Centre for Islamic Law and Society and Federation Fellow in the Law School at the University of Melbourne.

With over 500 gorgeous photographs and extensive commentary, this book is an exploration of Bali's most most stunning homes and gardens. Bali has long been a creative inspiration for the world—providing exciting new design ideas that are emulated today in homes and hotels around the globe. The open to the elements bathroom with interior courtyard garden, the giant bamboo sofa with handwoven cushion covers, and the garden pavilion or bale with raised platform seating are all examples of concepts that originated on the island. All these—and much more—may be viewed in Bali By Design. Bali By Designs provides coverage of the latest and best design work in Bali today. Featuring 25 stunning contemporary homes, it showcases the ideas of a new generation of talented international and Indonesian designers. Each of these extraordinary houses presents new solutions for age-old challenges—illustrating how stylish modern lifestyles may be achieved through clever architecture and interior design. See the selection of artful furniture and furnishings in open, airy rooms, the inclusion of natural stone in shady courtyards and swimming pools, and the plethora of handcrafted surfaces, objects and artifacts. Many of these Balinese houses explore ways of reducing power consumption for a more sustainable, low-carbon future. Others present a modern urban version of the tropical Bali interior design style that has its roots in a traditional rural environment. All, however, combine modern technology with exotic local materials—Balinese sandstone, volcanic rock, recycled ulin wood—for breezy indoor-outdoor living. With over 300 stunning photographs by Danish photographer Jacob Termansen and an insightful text by British author Kim Inglis, this book is a fitting testament to the originality and talent of Bali's design world.
