Traditional Homes Preservation

Gregorius Antar Awal is an architect dedicated to ethnic architecture. He has been initiating many developments in Indonesian vernacular architecture, notably in Wae Rebo, East Nusa Tenggara. His role in conservation is not only important for architecture and the design industry, but also for culture and tourism sectors. Now he is known as Yori Antar, the principal of Han Awal & Partners.

His late father Han Awal founded the company— his architectural work is also notable throughout various conservation areas in the country. He earned his bachelor’s degree in architecture from Univesitas Indonesia (UI), where he frequently serves as guest lecturer and advisor for UI’s annual architecture excursion to rural places in Indonesia.
