SAA Awards

SAA Awards merupakan kegiatan rutin yang diadakan secara berkala di jurusan Arsitektur Unpar sejak tahun 2003. Adapun tujuan dari kegiatan ini adalah memberikan penghargaan kepada peserta SAA (Studio Akhir Arsitektur) yang mempunyai karya desain terbaik. Selain itu juga kegiatan ini juga berguna sebagai sarana untuk mengevaluasi mutu dan kualitas karya perancangan arsitektur mahasiswa secara berkala, khususnya studio akhir. Kegiatan ini dilaksanakan dengan bekerjasama dengan asosiasi profesi yakni IAI (Ikatan Arsitek Indonesia), untuk menjaga terciptanya kesinambungan antara dunia akademik dan dunia profesional.

Melalui umpan balik dunia praktek ke akademik diharapkan dapat menjadi masukan yang signifikan bagi pengembangan pengajaran perancangan arsitektur di kampus, demikian pula sebaliknya, sehingga dapat saling mendukung satu sama lain dan membuka wawasan yang lebih luas bagi kedua belah pihak.

Beberapa video karya mahasiswa Studio Akhir Arsitektur Universitas Katolik Parahyangan, 3 semester terakhir dapat dibuka pada link berikut:

SAA Awards is an event held periodically in Architecture Department – UNPAR, Bandung-Indonesia since 2003. The main objective of the event is awarding the best designers among SAA (Final Architecture Studio) participants. Besides, it is also useful as the tool for evaluating the quality of architecture students’ works regularly, especially the final studio. It has been held with the collaboration with profession association, i.e. IAI (Indonesian Institute of Architects), This is an example of integration between academic and profession field to answer the demand in the particular field.

Architecture education through the designing task in Architecture Design Studio, basically, is an assimilation of theoretical and practical aspects; hence the academic values cannot be separated from the applications, especially the ones which are gained from experiences in practical fields. The integration between academic and professional world can be done by carrying out events in collaborations with particular profession associations. One of the events is by evaluating and awarding the best students’ projects by the associations. Such events are commonly done in some universities in foreign countries. The projects are acknowledged by the practitioners. Through feedbacks from the professional fields to the academic world, it is hoped that they can be significant inputs for the development of architecture designing education in campus, and vice versa, so that both sides can support each other and open wider horizons for themselves.

The event starts with an exhibition for all projects of Final Studio which get “A” marks and it opens for public. It is continued with marking time by the juries and ended by the awarding ceremony for winners. The Juries who mark for the SAA Awards are invited from IAI and even from foreign architect association which is recommended by IAI and not related to SAA mentors; hence the results are objective and independent. The invited juries are those who are well-experienced as juries, academicians, practitioners, and also experienced in competitions both nationally and internationally. The projects awarded SAA Awards have been published in the books of Architecture Final ProjectSAA Awards volume 1 – 5 and have been spread throughout Indonesia (for public and universities) and been sent to outside Indonesia such as UIA, Chulalongkorn University – Thailand, University of Malaya, UTM, IIUM – Malaysia, NUS – Singapore, University of Shenzhen – China, University of Melbourne, UNSW – Australia, Tsinghua University, Tongji University, Beijing University of Technology – China, Architecture Society of Chinaand through ARCASIA forum of architecture education session in December 2005 in Chiang Mai, been given to the Architect Association (Bangladesh, India, China, Hongkong, Japan, Korea, Macau, Malaysia, Nepal, Mongolia, Pakistan, The Philiphines, Singapore, Sri Langka, Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Myanmar, Maladewa, Australia, and Brunei).
