Architecture, Culture and Tectonics Research Group



Having completed her Bachelor of Architecture at Universitas Indonesia and MA in Art, Space and Nature at The University of Edinburgh, Diandra Saginatari is currently a PhD Student in Architectural Design (Social Science) at the Department of Architecture and Built Environment, University of Nottingham. She is also a lecturer at the Department of Architecture, Universitas Indonesia. Her research revolves around the connection between architecture and the broader ecologies, exploring spatial practice driven by materiality. Her current PhD project explores the notion of porosity as an architectural condition that can unravel such a connection, especially between materiality and spatiality in architecture.
