You know what, after reading your postings, I am thinking of making HO scale (1:87 scale) of PTPN XI building in Surabaya. I was wondering if the technical drawing of this building exist?

It contains large parts of that documentary but this video is upscaled to 1080p and heavily edited. So now you can see the details of the buildings much clearer and additional background information is presented in real-time.

Incorrect, I never said it was narrated in audio btw, additional background information about the buildings is given in a subtitle/CC kind of way.

Semarang, a City Walkthrough


De Willemskerk

Semarang, Indonesia

The Dutch Willemskerk of Western Indonesia, better known as Blenduk Church (Gereja Blenduk) is a Protestant church in Semarang, Central Java, Indonesia. Built in 1753, it is the oldest church in the province.Blenduk Church, at 32 Letjen Suprapto Street in the old town of Semarang, Central Java, is located in a small courtyard between former office buildings. The Jiwasraya building is located to the south, across the street, while the Kerta Niaga offices are to its west.

The octagonal church, built on a stone foundation and with single-layer brick walls, has its ground floor at street level. It is topped by a large, copper-skinned dome, from which it gets its common name; the Javanese word mblenduk means dome. The dome is supported by 32 steel beams, 8 large and 24 small. Two towers, square at the base and slowly rounding until topped with a small dome, are located on either side of the main entrance, while a cornice consisting of horizontal lines runs around the building; Roman-style porticoes covered in saddle-shaped roofs are located on its eastern, southern and western faces. Blenduk also features etched and stained glass windows, as well as wood-panel double doors at the south-facing entrance. The wooden pews inside Blenduk have rattan seats, while the pulpit is completely made of wood and located on an octagonal platform made of teak A nonfunctional Baroque pipe organ from the 1700s is also located inside. The floor is covered in black, yellow, and white tiles. In the northern part of the interior is a spiral staircase, etched with name of its manufacturer, Pletterij den haag (Rolling Mill, The Hague), which leads to the second floor.

Blenduk was established in 1753; the initial building had a joglo-style. Although meant for Protestants, Catholics also used it until the first Catholic church in the city was built. The church was later rebuilt in 1787. Another re-imagining, spearheaded by H.P.A. de Wilde and W. Westmas, began work in 1894. During this renovation, the dome and two towers were added. Another series of renovations began in the early 2000s. As of 2004, the church has 200 families and holds regular Sunday services; it is also a tourist attraction.

Very good question.

Even though the Dutch East India Company (VOC) did not really care for the aesthetical value of buildings at first, the Dutch actually did create a 'little Netherlands' in Batavia/Jakarta. Late 17th century Batavia was praised being the Asian version of Amsterdam with canals, bridges, canal houses and palaces. Unfortunately nothing is left from this period because the living conditions in the old city deteriorated and the city was expanded three times inland. The old kota was largely demolished and what is left are just a few examples like the old VOC Town Hall and a typical Dutch draw-bridge. This story is more or less the same for other VOC towns like Semarang.

The Caribbean style is all the same a different colonial style. The Dutch in the East were influenced by the Portuguese colonial style with inevitable adaptions for the tropical climate. Avaliable building material and local styles also influenced the desiging process. The typical Dutch step-gable architecture as we know it from the 17th century was still adapted in 18th and 19th century Caribbean styles, while in the Dutch East Indies, 'modern' tastes like the more formal neo-classicistic or empire styles were prevalent, followed by 20th century 'Indische Stijl' hybrid buildigs and modern styles like Art Deco.

Willemstad Curacao is beautiful and charming, but from an architectural stance one could argue that it's hopelessly old-fashioned - and survived through time because in the 19th century the Dutch Caribbean was a lot less wealthier than the Indies. Once poor cities are generally considered the best preserved.

But that's just the story in a nutshell.
