A Concreted Batik

Posted on January 13th, 2010 at 4:21 pm by Akhyari


Indonesia will celebrate its national art of batik with a pair of skyscrapers clad in material resembling the textile.

The Sahid Perdana Twin Towers in Jakarta will reference the traditional form of art on its upper floors while still maintaining a truly modernistic feel.

Designed by Urbane, the elliptical towers will rise from a podium with a pod-shaped entrance. The glass facade will change as the towers rise, merging into a batik-like appearance at the top.

The towers will be linked by a space-age looking skybridge that looks kind of like a UFO has become wedged between the two towers!

The whole complex is expected to open soon. Enjoy Jakarta!
