The rapid increase in the citizens’ population strengthens Bandung’s reputation as a city of

‘perkebunan’. Plus, its strategic geographical condition attracts the colonization of the Europeans

on the 3rd of July 1920 by Mr. J.P. Graaf van Limburg Stirum, Jeneral Gabenor of the Dutch.

ITB’s main campus basically covers up of 770,000 square meters of the whole area. The

main campus consists of two main building, which is Barakgebouw A (Aula Barat) and

Barakgebouw B (Aula Timur). Ir. Henri Maclaine, the architect, planned it as an experimental

architectural building in compromising the traditional architecture with the west advanced

construction techniques.

Addition to that, it was said that ITB’s Barakgebouw brings harmony in unity between the

design of its traditional architecture and the west knowledge of construction.

Barakgebouw B also known as Aula Timur, once functioned as experimental laboratory in

experimenting the building materials and as lecture hall for the learning process of the building

landmark influenced by the colonization in Indonesia.

2.5 Traffic Flow & Accessibility

The significant impact of urbanization in ITB’s location brings problems of the increasing

mobility and infrastructure demand. One of the infrastructures that are very important is

transportation infrastructure which determines the level of accessibility of the people and

commodities from one place to another.

Due to the rapid development in ITB’s surroundings, eg: increased number of populations

and students, traffic problem is considerably becoming very serious. There are traffic congestions

mainly consist of building structure, fabrics and finishes, openings and services.


Aula Timur is a traditional building which is located in Bandung Institute of Technology. It is

designed by Henri Maclaine Pont, an architect from Netherlands and established on 1920’s. It has a

traditional design and become one of the most popular buildings in Bandung.

From observations, the building consists of hall, surau, VIP room, store room and Cultural Figure 6: Surau at the west of Aula Timur.

staircases, external wall, internal wall and partition wall. While the materials used in this building are

timber, masonry, concrete and glass. It used teak timber type from Java Island. The material of floor

is concrete and it used tiles as its finishes. Aula Timur use pitch roof system and it’s covered with

kayu sirap (iron wood shingle). The masonry walls are well-plastered internally and externally. All

the beam joists are made of timber. The main structure in this building is the timber arches that

support the most percentage of loads for the whole building.

There were a lot of extensions has been done to this building. The extensions have been

made at the certain parts of Aula Timur but it did not change the original structure of the building.

Overall, Aula Timur needs to have a proper maintenance works to ensure that the originality

and uniqueness of the building is conserve.

Teak is the type of timber that is used as columns in Aula Timur because of its well known

quality and high strength. Teak type of timber is well known for its quality type of timber due to its

durable characteristic and less maintenance needed afterwards.

Teak has its own oil substance which does not need further treated oil and varnish but it is

believed that all internal columns has already been treated by oil due to its black colour surface. As

teak is hard type of timber, the architect used twenty five thin layer of teak to make the curve style

as external column at Aula Timur, combination of different size of river stone glued by mortar. Stone

column is one of the unique symbols of ITB as all the external column in this institute is made up

from stone. There is no information available about any maintenance has been done to the

Aula Timur uses masonry as its wall which is located just below the window level for the

external wall while internal partition wall is made up from plywood. External wall (masonry wall) is

painted with white colour, 1350 mm height and 150mm thickness.

3.2.4 Beam renovation have been done to the floor. Floor in this building is generally flat but in the ‘surau’, there

is four drop at the floor, which is 150mm height each.

The building uses teak timber for its beam and from the observation, all beams structure are

recognized as an original structure where there are no additional beams or changes being made. 3.2.6 Staircase

However, the beam structure above the ceiling level is excluded from the observation due to

inaccessible and unreachable location. Beams in this building are generally in good condition but There are 6 staircases in Aula Timur. It is divided into 2 types which are the 1 way staircase

Material used in the staircases is concrete, which contains lime and cement. All the staircases are

different to each other. The different of staircases are listed in a table below:

Drainage is provided to maintain healthy conditions in the building, to collect and remove

waste matters systematically and to dispose off waste water as early and quickly as possible.

Drainage system for Aula Timur is surrounds the building. Material used in the drains is

concrete and it is covered with cement render. The condition of the drains is very poor. There are

thick soil precipitate in the drain that affects water flow during rainy day. Some parts of the drains

are cracked and broken that make the drains are not functioning well.
