Ancient Sketch (The ruins and the sacred Space)

Here are some of my sketches that I categorize as the ancient ones. The most important thing, before the architecture really forms the civilization of this world.

Ancient buildings that expose beautifull sense of architecture always gives a different taste of Wastu Citra  as Mangunwijaya said. The wastus which we are talking here are about the ancient architecture. A common theme running through many of the early structures that are built was made as some religious object. Stonehenge, Ziggurats, Giza, are some of the examples. And here I sketched some of what I think the precious ancient objects from some place.

Kaaba, The Most Sacred Space.


Caption:
It is not purely called as an ancient building even it is built befor century. But the most amazing thing that I see is this simple design that really unites us (moslems in the world). I never forget to say Subhanallah after seeing this Masjidil Haram in Mecca
. A building that has a power as the sacred point.

Blandongan Temple

This ruins really describes what Ruins in Indonesia are commonly look like. Still in the site, the view that I got before sketching is a bit messy. But the beauty of this temple replace all the mess. This temple is  Located in Batu Jaya Site, Karawang. A place full of various myths that maybe helps to describe what this temple is. 


Persepolis, the Old Iran

A sketch of the ruins of persepolis. City of the persians. The pillars are the ones that stand stills and shows the true strenght of a column in the ancient Structures. This ruins Begin as a single palace, it grew into a vast complex of colossal, post and lintel palaces. The angle that I got is based on Sutherland Lyalls book of "World Architecture."
