ABSTRACT

Indonesia is known as an agriculture state with abundant farming crops, forest and plantations crops, and supported the majority farming communities’ livelihoods. The trend of agriculture development was hindered by limited people interested in the agriculture careers; because of the perception of office jobs were better than the agriculture ones. The unbalanced development of urban areas also created office buildings, shopping centers, housings, reduced green area reduction, also more traffic jams and pollutions. Therefore, the affordable vertical garden was needed to replace the horizontal garden.

However, vertical garden was not easy to maintain because of its difficult cultivation process. Because of that, the innovation of watering system without massive human intervention was needed. Some products were developed by Antonio Some products were developed by Antonio Scarponi and IKEA Switzerland, Green over Grey™, Vespro Inc, and Indogreenwall; but the product prices were too high for Indonesia. Therefore, a more affordable vertical garden design is proposed.

The hydroponic media also was difficult to find. Therefore a normal media consisting of fertilizer, soil and gravel could be introduced for more affordable price. And more people were interested to grow fruit or vegetables crops to meet daily needs (impacts of social and economic aspects). Furthermore, the improvement of aesthetics, and pollution reductions would be produced (minimize the impact of global warming and climate change). Lastly, the vertical greenery is going to be integrated in house facade design and supplying daily vegetable consumption.

Keywords: vertical greenery, house facade design

ABSTRACT

Undergraduate students have great potential to produce positive ideas for the Indonesia. The process was required the students’ intelligence and empathy for the environment. The phenomenon of imbalance development and natural resources preservation need to be solved with ecological design approaches. Surabaya city, as the Indonesian Green Region Award winners (IGRA) in 2011, was able to show the successful greening efforts because of the Major’s great support. Architecture students should continue supporting the youth involvement in greening efforts of Surabaya.

Therefore, a house design exercise was important to increase the students’ understanding to create the ecological city design. The Autonomous Home – Office was a small design exercise conducted based on the ecological design principles of the Dr. Heinz Frick. Some strategies are used such as: spatial optimisation recycled building materials, cross ventilation, shading, the bio-pores, urban farming and pollutant reduction landscape, day-lighting design and solar panels, rainwater collection and solid waste separation.

The student’s design exercise actually highlighted the importance of youths’ empathy for the environment. Although, the design was not constructed, the design could show simple solution to greening the city.

Keywords: empathy for the environment, greening efforts of Surabaya, ecological design principles.
