Program Scientific Vision: developing innovative architectural science based on local wisdom in West Kalimantan to become an architectural information center supported by Technology, Information, and Communication (ICT)

West Kalimantan Architecture Field Practicum

To support students’ knowledge in conducting survey techniques and collecting field data, lecturers and all 7th-semester students taking the West Kalimantan Architecture course carried out field practicums in the Kuning Agung Pontianak building. The building was chosen because the West Kalimantan Architecture course will focus on documenting traditional/vernacular/local buildings and those typical of certain ethnic groups in West Kalimantan. In 2023, students will conduct exploration in Mempawah Regency; for this reason, before doing it directly in Mempawah Regency, students will be taught through field practicum in the Kuning Agung building.
