      Abstract: A city is said to be accessible if its implementation accommodates users’ needs, including those with special needs, either disabled, elderly, children, etc. The environment is considered accessible if it ensures users' equality, equity, and living without a hitch. Surabaya, a city with great appreciation and recognition, known to be one of the best cities in the world, is still yet not to be entitled as an accessible city, despite all the greatness of the town, which improve the people living in it. Like most cities in Indonesia, Surabaya is built mainly normative oriented to buildings and urban infrastructures and facilities, not human-orientedapproach. Some failures in urban design implementation are common, for instance: tree roots and their placement are still interfering pedestrians on the sidewalk; most signage is still not informative enough for people with special needs in streets and public facilities; guiding blocks for blind people are far from decent to be safely and comfortably used in a daily basis; parks pay no attention to their accessibility; etc. This paper offers an idea about how to live as a blind person in Indonesia and how the experience is considered the primary part of a design process. The idea is generated to propose the design criteria for redesigninga public park. The data is gathered through participant observation by referencing from a blind’s point of view. Taman Bungkul is chosen as a field study as it is one of the best and the oldest parks in Surabaya and has been recognized and actively used by the residents. The proposed idea is formed by directly experiencing and observing what it feels like to be blind amidst public facilities designed for the non-disabled. The design criteria weigh how blinds gather information, percept spaces and distances, and use their senses such as aural, olfactory, tactile, and other senses. The result proposes design criteria for existing public facilities that are more accessible, visitable, comfortable, and inclusive for everyone, especially for the blind. The design is presented and graphically communicated.

      Abstract: Each settlement has specific characteristics and characteristics based on their respective backgrounds. Gang Nibung Samarinda is an urban kampong settlement on the banks of the Karang Mumus River of Samarinda City. Characteristics of riverside settlements are different from settlements that do not have rivers, these characteristics can be reviewed from how the community adapts to be able to use space on housing and environment in riverside city villages. The community adapts to be able to meet its needs causing changes in residential space and environmental space. Characteristics of the condition of the Gang nibung settlement site, which is mainly surrounded by rivers, make the orientation of occupancy facing towards the river makes the space on the riverbank becomes used space for its people. This study uses field study methods in reviewing space adaptation activities in riverside villages. This research uses field study methods in reviewing space adaptation activities in the riverside village environment. The results showed that the adaptability pattern of space is influenced by the pattern of the type of clarity of the activity that is accommodated, the pattern of openness of the design of a space, and the pattern of the relationship of space with the surrounding environment.

      Abstract: Steven Holl, an American architect who began his design career in 1975, has a unique way of designing. He is known for his many drawings, artistic expression, and distinctive conceptual designs. Steven Holl's designs start with watercolour sketches, a world-renowned architect whose projects are still underway worldwide. This study will examine the philosophy of Steven Holl's plan. It will also explore the aspects of his proposal of sustainable architecture, which he has presented in recent years. It will consider the coexistence of the theme of sustainable architecture with the works of contemporary architects to deepen our knowledge of architectural DesignDesign. In addition, the purpose is to clarify the modelling characteristics by classifying the outer shape of residential works using a plan view.

      Abstract: The Island of Bali is not only rich in natural conditions and landscapes but also has unique socio-cultural and architectural characteristics. This makes the island of Bali a tourism and research destination, especially the indigenous villages that are called Bali Aga. There are approximately twenty-five villages spread and lies on in the four areas of the Bangli Regency. These Bali Agavillages are unique for implementing the original Balinese traditions. Mostly the Bali Aga villages take place in the fringe ofmountains, hilly areas, and along the shores of Lake Batur. The observations on the architecture of the houses found that there arefew traditional buildings called sakaroras still extant. This cannot be separated from technological and communication developments that affect people's lives. The study aims to explore the existence of the indigenous villages in the Bangli Regency,mainly to document the architecture of traditional houses that still exist. Observations were carried out to obtain primary data regarding the architectural conditions of the sakaroras. Interviews were conducted with the village leader to get information aboutthe history, the village’s needs, and the sakaroras house condition. This study found that most sakaroras houses have been turned into a modern house style. This research implies that it is essential to document the existence of the sakaroras place, which tends to change as evidence of cultural heritage and the identity of traditional Balinese architecture. Public awareness to maintaincultural heritage needs to be encouraged through programs to foster the importance of preserving traditional houses.

      Abstract: The attractiveness of physical settings covers from its initial concentration on ordinary settings to anthropogenic environments, including the beauty of everyday life in the late twentieth century. A mosque is a place of worship that tends to be influenced by the legacy of glorious Islamic civilization in Indonesia. The current modern architectural design shows the existence of environmental aesthetics and local culture without losing the essence of the mosque as a place of worship. This study aims to determine the public's perception of architectural criticism of mosques with unique designs based on modernity and local culture. The method used is a descriptive case study scrutinizing respondents' perceptions in criticizing the mosque building through online questionnaires. Twenty respondents with an architectural background and 20 without architectural knowledge were chosen to answer Likert scale-based questions. The questions refer to three architectural aspects: symbols or characters, attractiveness, and functionality of the mosque. The results showed that respondents with architectural education background dominantly perceived an eminent consensus on the three architectural features compared to the ones of non-architectural environment. This indicates that respondents with an architectural education background understood the symbolic facet of the setting's attractiveness of mosque better when viewed from architectural criticism's point of view.
