Gatot Subroto Office Complex, Jakarta, Indonesia, 1990 Project Not Built


“The Dharmala Group commissioned Rudolph to design this office-condominium complex in the outskirts of Jakarta, Indonesia. A rare concept in the United States but common in Southeast Asia, the office condo offered three hundred thousand square feet of office space in twenty-five to thirty stories.
For Rudolph, the design problem became how to connect several multistory buildings on a site and not make them appear overwhelming. After developing a number of proposals, he settled on one scheme. His final response was to connect the buildings tenuously and let the whole read as a 'perforated wall,' lifted off the ground by a structural frame. The complex was never built.”
