Before strenuous exercise, of course the body needs to warm up first. Likewise, to start the new semester, warming up is needed for the DTAP academic community to be more enthusiastic about following the lecture agenda in the new academic year, Odd 2021/2022. As usual, the Department of Architectural Engineering and Planning held a Public Lecture which presented a number of speakers before starting the lectures in depth at the beginning of each semester. This inaugural lecture activity applies to all Architecture and Urban Area Planning (PWK) study programs at any level. Each study program presents speakers who are qualified in their fields. The implementation of the 2021/2022 odd semester general lecture will take place online.

Welcome to the DTAP academic community, Faculty of Engineering, UGM. It doesn’t feel like a year and a half has passed since the start of the pandemic. During that time, our daily face-to-face activities were blocked and turned into Work From Home (WFH). However, the spirit of carrying out daily activities certainly does not fade away for the sake of the beloved state university.
Time goes on and it doesn’t feel like a new semester is waiting for the school year. As an initial step to start a new semester, it feels incomplete if you have not carried out a routine agenda, namely Infoday DTAP. This activity introduces new students to know more about the Department of Architecture and Planning, Faculty of Engineering, UGM. However, since the pandemic has not improved, Infoday DTAP was held via online webinar .This activity involves several parties such as department administrators, study program administrators, KM and HM organizer, including new students themselves.
The International Conference on Indonesian Architecture and Planning (ICIAP) is an international conference which is held every 2 years by the Department of Architecture and Planning, Faculty of Engineering, Gadjah Mada University. This conference aims to bring together academics, researchers and practitioners from all over the world to share knowledge and experiences in the world of architecture and planning in Indonesia. Until this year, ICIAP has been held five (5) times.
This year, the 5th ICIAP was held for two days, on 15-16 October 2020 with the theme “Complexity: Design, Planning, and Innovation”, with specific topics; (1) Architectural Design; (2) Building Technology; (3) Settlement, Housing, and Neighborhood Design and Planning; (4) Urban Design and Planning; and (5) Regional and Rural Planning. Academics, researchers, and practitioners from all over the world can participate in collecting papers related to these themes and specific topics which will be presented by each author online through a platform called HOPIN due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Inauguration ceremony of Prof. Dr Ir. Budi Prayitno, M.Eng., As Professor of the Faculty of Engineering, was held at the Senate Hall, Universitas Gadjah Mada. In connection with the COVID-19, the event was only attended by the Board of Professors and several representatives of the academicians by following the applicable health protocol. Meanwhile, other guests were asked to attend and watch online on the Universitas Gadjah Mada Youtube channel.
The event, which was held on July 23, 2020, began with singing the song Indonesia Raya and Hymne Gadjah Mada which was then followed by the opening of the Open Meeting of Board of Professors by the Chairman. Furthermore, Prof. Dr Ir. Budi Prayitno, M.Eng had the opportunity to deliver his Professor’s inauguration speech entitled “A New Paradigm of Housing and Urban Development”. He said that housing is one of the basic needs to create prosperity, apart from clothing, food, education and health. However, understanding the meaning of the board is often seen as the physical fulfilment of the house so that the performance target is difficult to achieve. Therefore, we need a new development paradigm that positions houses as part of an urban issue where land is a determinant of the effectiveness of housing provision. The concept of share land value capture can support the government’s balanced land policy which uses a 1: 2: 3 composition, which means that developers building one luxury house are required to build two middle-class units, and three simple class units can be supported by the concept.
