PLASTIC CHAIR VERSATILITY AS AN APPROACH TO CONSTRUCT PASAR 1 BARU INFORMAL SPACE
Keywords:Materiality, morphogenic power of its own, informal space
This paper investigates materiality as architecture manifestation in commercial informal space. The materiality
approach in this paper revolves around the Manuel De Landa idea of material’s properties and capacity, which
interact to each other to create unlimited possibilities. This cycle of interaction is what Manuel DeLanda called
as morphogenic power of its own. Understanding material system and existing context are two essential process
in order to produce a responsive design in this random, unpredictable pattern of informal space, which in this
paper, the context that will be specifically studied is Pasar Baru. In the further study, the material which will be
studied along with Pasar Baru context is the versatile usage of plastic chair. This paper will investigate
materiality approach as a relevant method to create a contextual design, as this approach will be highly based on
interaction system between the physical material and the context.
