A reflection of BUDD Camp 2016

Having an opportunity in a BUDD Camp Brescia 2016 seems like a great occasion for me. It was not only expanding my understanding to the current urban issue but also, my first real experience working in the ground field. After a series of discourses during our class in MSc Building Urban Design in Development, the camp acted as a breakthrough toward real cases and knowledge implementation. Starting to develop myself into a critical practitioner, our time in Brescia has given an experience how does developing practitioner work under the pressure of time, quality of output, team collaboration, and reflecting our notions. Working with the issue of migrants and how we can imply our interventions toward critical and alternative future scenarios is a challenging yet interesting at the same time.


Urbanism can be shown to be a temporary-centric based on historically urban phenomena and urban forms of integration in a specific time. Thus, an integrated plan for a temporal urban condition should be a system of interlinked actions which seeks to bring better intervention within the city in a whole.

Talking about portfolio while doing my master degree in BUDD, I will try to propose it as a reflection throughout my journey here and show it in series chapters of a “FLIPGRAM of EVOLUTION”. As a practitioner that learns about architecture and urban as a design tool, and also working a lot with the physical intervention in my previous years. I would like to say that I am doing a process of evolution now.

What I am thinking about Urban, Architecture, Border, and Space have been slowly changed to better interpretation. Evolution as its definition meaning the gradual development of something is totally happening to me, and I do not know when it will be stopped (or maybe it can be a never ending progression?).

As an evolution process, for me, my understanding about Urban, Architecture, Border, and Space will constantly evolve and change. However, to understand it deeply I do not want to leave my process that I got before, and re-frame it as a critical step towards my new perspective.

Therefore, as a narrative of my approaches, it can be shown in this portfolio by playing the flip-images back and forth. Perhaps it can show how my understanding comes from a back-and-forth process during my way to shape and re-shape its meaning.

Finally, all of my new perspectives have been changed and driven by my intention to the theory of the right to the city. Then, it also renavigates my understanding about the city in a whole.
