Architecture UI Fair (AFAIR) is an annual event presented by Ikatan Mahasiswa Arsitektur (IMA) BEM FTUI
and Department of Architecture FTUI, as a moment for the students to show their talent in thinking creatively and responding towards issues in their surroundings.  The output would be developed as certain architectural projects that could be shared and communicated to the society, academicians, and professionals.

This year we choose Play With Your Surroundings as a concept of the whole event where having fun in urban activities is the main focus.
“Summing up the formal characteristics of play we might call it a free activity standing quite consciously outside “ordinary” life as being “not serious,”

“Play is a voluntary activity or occupation executed within certain fixed limits of time and place, according to rules freely accepted but absolutely binding, having its aim in itself and accompanied by feeling of tension, joy, and consciousness that it is different from ordinary life” J. Huizinga ‘Homo Ludens’

Man and playing can not be separated. Playing is a free activity done with consciousness, outside the typical human life which often faced with stress and seriousness. In playing, we create, decide, and form a certain space and time. This human need of space and time is an architectural aspect that determines many forms of urban places according to the activities and surroundings.

So, here we gladly invite you  to come to AFAIR 2012 “Play With Surroundings” main exhibition with details mentioned above. Let’s see and support these fresh, youthful ideas that will be brought during this events!
(Don’t forget to bring along your companions!)
