The Exodus multi-functional project is nominated for the Golden Trezzini in the “Best Project of Public Space by a Student” category.
The Exodus in Yogyakarta, on the island of Java, is a station used for migratory birds stopover as well as a bridge for human to observe birds in their natural habitat. The project is designed by Martin Adriel Purnomo, 3rd year undergraduate architecture student of Universitas Atma Jaya, Yogyakarta, Indonesia.
Indonesia is a country with the biggest migration routes, no wonder because Indonesia is the most southern tropical country in Asia which is suitable for most birds to live while winter strike the northern hemisphere, the young architect explains. However, several flocks of migratory bird perched in urban area, some consider their presence as a wonderful phenomenon, but others may find it as a nuisance and try to harm them, which is a common occurrence in developing countries such as China, Pakistan, Indonesia, and many other. If this ignorance still going on, it means a threat toward 80% pollinator around the world. The Exodus is a concept of moving misguided migratory birds in urban areas to designated nature preserve. This project ‘embrace’ nature as an education and recreation center while also utilizing biogas from organic waste to be converted into electric resource.
