UTM Landscape Architecture Partners with Universitas Muhammadiyah Surakarta: Insights into Solo’s Street Placemaking and Urban Vitality

Surakarta, Sept. 4– In an era where collaboration is the key to unlocking innovation, Surakarta witnessed a groundbreaking initiative that perfectly encapsulates this ethos. The Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) Landscape Architecture Department, in a visionary move, orchestrated a three-day workshop in partnership with the Department of Architecture of Universitas Muhammadiyah Surakarta. This wasn’t just a simple gathering; it was a confluence of minds from several esteemed institutions, including the Institut Teknologi Nasional Bandung, Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia, Universitas Muhammadiyah Jakarta, and Universitas ‘Aisyiyah Yogyakarta (Unisa).

A robust team of fifteen distinguished docents from Indonesian universities and from UTM converged for this workshop. Under the guidance of Dr. Ismail Said, a professor who formerly served with distinction in the Department of Landscape Architecture at UTM and has since retired, and Dr. Janatun Naim Yusof, a senior lecturer from the same institution, the workshop’s primary objective was set forth with clarity. Assisted by Dr. Rohana Mohamad Firdaus, also from the Department of Landscape Architecture at UTM under the Flexible Academic Service Scheme, and Dr. Tika Ainunnisa Fitria from the Department of Architecture at Unisa, the aim was to craft four to five manuscripts of impeccable quality, targeting international high-impact journals. The synergy between the docents and the twenty-seven undergraduates was palpable. Their collective energy, fueled by a shared vision, was channeled into creating these manuscripts, with seasoned experts from various universities providing invaluable guidance.
