8. Interior Urbanism
Hamzah Al Asadulloh
I am an Indonesian designer with an interest in socially conscious design.
I completed my undergraduate degree in Interior Design at Institut Teknologi Bandung in Indonesia. While working professionally as an interior designer for several years, I was recruited to the core interior design team for the revitalization of Indonesia’s premier airport Soekarno-Hatta International Airport. I continued my higher education at the RCA specializing in Interior Urbanism under the Interior Design program.
I was featured, along with several team members, in various publications such as BCI’s Architecture @ showcasing upcoming architectural projects in Asia. I was involved in several architecture exhibitions while Bandung including Indonesialand 2016. My recent features include the RCA WIP Show 2020, the Kortrijk Creativity Week 2019, and RA Architecture.
My work is concerned with the way the city contains its inhabitants and, inversely, the way people inhabit the city. It explores a new typology that places people as the main component of the city and questions the existing infrastructures and power imbalance in place within the urban context.
I also seek to consider the specifics in which the city could be liberated from spatial constrictions implemented by the ruling class. The result is a design scheme that defies capitalist notions of spatial ownership, an issue that is swiftly becoming more apparent in the London context. It is especially poignant in the era of COVID-19, in which public space has been proven to be essential to urban life.
London's unique position as a global city with its palimpsestic density and boundless human stories has intrigued me on a visceral level. The fact that it is a global center for the art and design world has enriched my understanding of the industry in greater detail. I would love to work in such a fascinating city and make my mark here.
