Wisnu Wisdantio usually also called “Wawies” is an Architect who is also a research enthusiast towards science, history, social, culture, ecology, local knowledge, environmental issues, and how they are connected to each other. This brought him to have concerns to emphasize the connections towards his designs since he was studying at the Architecture Study Program – Atma Jaya University Yogyakarta, during his works at a design and engineering firm in Yogyakarta – Indonesia, even until nowadays where he spends most of his time as an Architect, Urban Designer, and planning analyst within his own Architect Studio called “WieStudio”.
His endless research enthusiasm also drives him to have an interest in travelling and self-learning photography autodidactically as part of a research process and knowledge transfer. Eventually, it led “Wawies” to develop his early works when joined www.landscapeindonesia.com in 2010, an open online platform to archive travellers’ notes when exploring Indonesia. He accomplished several projects as a researcher and travel writer on several Travel E-books collaboration projects that were organized and self-published by www.landscapeindonesia.com.
His works expand widely after taking part in a long-term cross-disciplinary project called “Jogja River Project” which was organized by Lifepatch in 2012, a community-based organization working in the creative and appropriate application in the field of art, science, and technology. Within that project, he got an opportunity to explore creative visual documentation methods to support a research process through the development of 360-degree photo documentation techniques and its DIY Panohead Tool. Since then, Lifepatch has become his platform for most of his work lately while maintaining his daily routine of working as an Architect and Urban planner.
Nowadays, Wisnu or “Wawies” has developed various experiments and works, ranging from the exploration of various exhibition designs, exploring the utilization of visual documentation as part of a research process and a medium for transferring knowledge, developing various interactive works based on scientific interpretation and research on site-specific projects, as well as explore any possibilities to bring architecture and urban design as part of various cross-disciplinary activities and community conversations.
