Some of those buildings remind me of Miami Beach's Art Deco buildings.

yeah... art deco is quiet identical around the world whilst many has its own characteristic, they look pretty similar to one another.

@Poetradaerah please do show us more of Makassar

I've just found this thread - many thanks to all contributors, particularly kevo123, for such wonderful pictures of Dutch colonial heritage in Indonesia, both monumental and vernacular. I particularly enjoy the pics of the small garden suburb houses of Bandung which have had odd adaptations, yet their original design, gardens and architectural details often survive to a very large degree.

I had the opportunity to visit Bandung and Jakarta earlier this year and was very impressed with the cities and their built heritage. Its appreciated that Indonesia is a developing country and maintaining this heritage is a challenge, yet everyone I met in the country was very friendly and interested in this heritage. The larger more monumental buildings appeared in surprisingly good condition, though many smaller buildings and houses in the downtowns and garden suburbs had been adapted to new uses, usually commercial of sorts, which unfortunately were often very functional changes which were not always very respectful. However, the fact that so much survives and continues to function - with those amazing red clay tile roofs - reflects the quality of the work. During my visit I met a number of people who were working to promote the conservation of this heritage - this was great - there is a lot of work to do, though the results are very worthwhile.

I found it difficult to find good books on this architecture, if anyone can suggest some good books covering Bandung, Jakarta etc and their colonial heritage, this would be much appreciated.

In the meantime, please keep posting and I may have comments to add or questions. Thanks again to all.

Thank you for your comment and visit to Indonesia, the dutch architecture in indonesia is indeed one of a kind in the world. They were very delicate and smartly built, very interesting way to adapt local environment. While the dutch didn't put much effort and money on the look of grandeur of architecture the details is amazing. For example how every architecture has complicated strong foundation againts earthquake, ventilation system to keep the inside cool and even air-conditioning through water bath basement as lawang sewu\nederlands indische spoorweg maatschappij had shown. Dutch buildings amazingly are very strong, like how the grand mosque of aceh manage to withstand huge earthquake back then. Even the cathedral of Jakarta was build to withstand earthquake, using teakwood to built up its gothic ceilings and putting iron spires instead of stones.

Not many in the big cities heritage were preserved, many of the old shophouses and old houses has been turned into ugly blocks, it wasn't until a few years ago that old houses aren't alllowed to be modified, and even then many of the old houses were renovated beyond recognition. But there is increasing awareness that old buildings and heritage preservation, but at the same time many of the owners too lacked knowledge that buildings they are settling in is actually old building. Only buildings that are tagged heritage cannot be modified and disrespectful people threatened the presence of these old buildings which are not tagged, usually preservation is limited to certain area only. Smaller cities is spared from mass development like jakarta but it is only a matter of time before they too will start to change.

Bandung was once known to be the new hot city of the Nederlands Indies, everything modern of the time were implemented while typical European style street planning is used as foundation of the new city. Interesting modernist and art deco were used to build houses and offices, while applying indies element into its details. It was to be the new capital of the colony but it never happened, however the european town planning makes it one of the most western with typical shaddy garden feel on its residential area. Thats the garden suburbs you've seen. Bandung was divided into 2 while european and local middle class lived in the northern part of the city, the south is where the majority of locals lived and the administration were left in the hand of the local council resulting typical indonesian sprawl on the south as comparison of the well-planned north. Similarly menteng and kebayoran baru in jakarta also are example of this new modern garden residential city, as population of middle class swells with rapid industrilization back in the 1900s.

I am also interested if they have a book or documentaries about dutch architecture in indonesia.

Fort Amsterdam, Hila, Ambon/Amboina, Indonesia (1637)

Before the fort was built, a trade lodge was established here by Francisco Serrão in 1512, a Portuguese explorer and a cousin of Ferdinand Magellan.

In the 17th-century, the Dutch East Indies Company was formed and the Dutch colonize the entire island of Ambon. The lodge was converted into a defensive post. It is located in the northern coast of Ambon Island. Because of the local uprising led by Kapitan Kakialy between 1633 and 1654, the governor-general Jaan Ottens converted it into a defensive post in 1637 and was expanded by Gerrad Demmer in 1642 and by governor-general Anthony Caan in 1649. The fort was finalized by Arnold de Vlaming van Oudsthoorn from 1649 until 1656 and was named Fort Amsterdam. Rumphius, a great German botanist, lived in the fort from 1660 to 1670.

The fort was left neglected by the Dutch in deteriorating form in early 20th century. A large tree had grow around it before the Indonesian Department of Education and Culture decided to restored it in July 1991. The restoration was based on a picture from François Valentijn's Beschreiving van Amboinan.
