Tariq Khalil dives into the world of 1950s and ’60s Indonesian architecture with this one-of-a-kind style guide. Documented in numerous photographs are the once-prestigious places that signified the modern Indonesian lifestyle in the early years following its independence. ‘Retronesia’ features countless buildings by the maverick architects who dared to design differently, talented visionaries whose creations are virtually unknown outside the archipelago today. Whether it is an eccentric townhouse, public building, religious edifice, hotel, or mountain villa, these unconventional structures are now revived in all their retro glory as true treasures of mid-century Indonesian modernism.
