Here students are free to consult with their lecturers for motivation in lectures and architectural professions.


Further to the Theme of the event, Bramantya as chairman of the management explained that “Language” can be interpreted as a way of interaction and expression.

“Cultural differences and generation gap sometimes become the boundaries for interacting between forces so it needs a bridge to connects us in communicating our language. This theme is chosen in accordance with the purpose this event, that is to express ourselves together in the form of friendship and tell each other stories as a big family of Architecture Students,” he said.

The Architecture Family Gathering itself is an annual event organized by the Department of Architecture through the Architecture Student Association. This event aims to connect the Big Family of Architecture Department; Students, Lecturers, and Academic Staffs.

The entire Epilogue event that night then closed with social experiment with all KBMA. Participants are asked to write their hopes on paper, personal expectations, and prospect about the progress of the student association and even the department. Participants then make large circles, each take turns reading their wishes loudly. Every expectation that is read, anyone who agrees with it and want to commit to it, they are welcome to enter the big circle.

This series completed with a closing statement about togetherness to achieve the ideals. The hope of this experiment creates a collective consciousness as an Architecture Student, that even the simplest desires or aspirations must be fought together, not individually. (Ajrina/SR/ems/mic)
