ITS Campus, ITS News – Increasingly showing their existence, the student team from the Institut Teknologi Sepuluh November (ITS) has again made a proud achievement. This time, the ITS Architecture Department student team won second place in the prestigious Architectural Design Competition by Kreature with the Surabaya City Government (Pemkot) with their work in the form of Ampel Connecting Hub.

This competition is intended to explore the best architectural designs for the area’s development supporting the Religious Tourism of the Sunan Ampel Tomb. “There are still many functions that are not maximized in the area; fresh ideas from the nation’s children are very much needed,” explained the team supervisor Dr. Eng Didit Novianto ST MEng.

The team, consisting of Kresentia Ivena Kristanti, Farrel Adyuta Wiratama, and Bonaventura Rah Abisca, transformed the area of ​​the former Slaughterhouse (RPH) into a functional site through its design. As explained by team member Farrel Adyuta Wiratama, who is familiarly called Yuta, there are three main concepts in his work: Local Community, Connectivity, and Sustain.

He further explained that these three concepts led the team to produce various innovative designs. The first is in the RPH area, which is converted into an educational space in the form of a museum. Furthermore, the team also presented the terminal as one of the public transportation centers. “The plan is for the terminal to be built first to provide easy access for visitors,” he explained.

The team also provided a design for a commercial area that was previously a former cattle shed to complete the presentation. That is to become an area that residents can use to sell food and drinks to unique souvenirs. “This design is intended to be able to revive potential areas that have not been used previously,” he said.

This 2019 class student added that several things were mentioned to be the advantages of this team design at the selection stage. Yuta said that one of the judges, Hijjas Kasturi, highly appreciated the impression of simplicity in the arrangement. Furthermore, this can be seen from the architectural arrangement system that is easy to understand and the harmonious and beautiful inter-space relationships.

Adding Yuta’s statement, Didit admitted that he was proud of his students’ achievements even though it was only done for less than a month. He said that one of the challenges faced was in responding that Ampel is a historic area that needs to be protected so that improvements can be made in terms of function but not physically.

Not only that, but Didit also explained that these challenges need to be processed with more modern design considerations to increase interest in visiting. He admitted several things would be evaluated in the future to perfect the idea. “Hopefully, this design can be one of the master plans in the Ampel development idea by the Surabaya City Government in the future,” he concluded.
