Baiq Mulianah explained that the establishment of the first study program in NTB was motivated by the NTB area which is a disaster-prone area. When the earthquake that occurred in NTB in 2018, caused hundreds of houses to be destroyed, but not a single traditional house was damaged. “This has encouraged us to study earthquake-resistant traditional building structures without leaving cultural elements in them,” he said.
