Taman Nusa is an Indonesian cultural park that aims to offer comprehensive information on the cultures of Indonesia’s various ethnic groups in the most attractive and interactive ways, while enjoying the natural beauty of Bali. Its mission is to provide a conservation, didactic and re-creative means for both domestic and foreign visitors to accurately understand the depiction of Indonesia. The landscaping of exuberant Gianyar hills in Bali and Indonesian architecture enhance each other harmoniously to form a paradise of breathtaking spectacle. This project is a testament that sustainable environment can be accomplished. Anchored on a cliff, along Melangit river, overlooking verdant hills filled with natural vegetation, senior architects familiar with the progression of Indonesian architecture design the Taman Nusa complex to accommodate unity between nature and edifice. Indonesian architecture can not be defined in a singular form, for each distinct island and region has their own unique identity ranging from one era to another. The ancient vernacular tradition is characterized by post foundations, an elevated living floor and a pitched roof with an extended roof ridge and outward leaning gable ends. The classical heritage of Hindu- Buddhist temples is portrayed in the form of candi, a stone structure raised on a basement and surmounted by a stepped pyramidal roof, ornamented with antefixes and finials. The ideological Islamic architecture reinvented previous building traditions to suit Muslim requirements identified symbolically, and the Dutch adopted indigenous architectural elements to create the colonial architecture called Indies Style. As such the Taman Nusa implies the direction for the farther development of architectural tradition for major culture which had reached certain peak in the architectural expression.
