Abstract

In traditional Indonesian architecture, bamboo and timber-frame
structures are essential elements, with roofs being a prominent feature. This
is due to the tropical climate conditions that demand such a design.
However, the traditional Indonesian hyperbolic-paraboloid roof is at risk of
extinction due to modern construction demands, and traditional
craftsmanship is gradually being lost. To address this issue, our research
investigates which existing parametric design tools and fabrication
techniques are suitable for a digital workflow and assembly production of
Indonesian traditional roof structures. Through a systematic review and
analysis of 19 selected articles, we have categorized the various workflows,
tools, and techniques and their suitability to propose and be integrated into
a novel Indonesian bamboo-based roof structure fabrication workflow,
making it accessible to contemporary architecture.
