An Analysis of Architectural Approach Towards the Efficiency of RISHA as Post-Disaster Housing Response in Indonesia

Research output: Contribution to journalConference article

Abstract

Indonesia has been frequently hit by devastating natural disasters that occurred one after another due to its geographical location that falls on the Ring of Fire. The loss of properties and the needs for shelter caused post-disaster housing high on demand. It became a significant sector during the reconstruction period of the post-disastrous event. Indonesian government introduced RISHA - Healthy, Modest, Instantaneous House - as a means to rebuild the houses with earthquake resistant technology. This paper highlights the points associated with the construction of RISHA: the manufacturing process, the complexity of the construction method, and the parties involved. Through analyzing the data obtained, qualitative approach is used to identify the key points in order to determine the efficiency and to suggest the technical solution for improvement of RISHA in architectural and construction perspectives as a response for post-disaster housing in Indonesia.
