CATEGORIZING THE BALI AGA ARCHITECTURE IN BALI PROVINCIAL REGULATION NO. 5 OF 2005
The architecture of the archipelago is built from the wisdom and intelligence of the people of Indonesia, its existence can demonstrate the traditional identity of Indonesian buildings. Bali Provincial Regulation no.5 of 2005 was made to regulate the architecture of buildings in Bali. Among the Balinese Architecture that existed in the periodization of Balinese history, architecture from Bali Madya and Bali Kuno (ancient Bali) period dominates the guidelines in this regulation. This becomes an interesting question to be rediscussed, even though the architecture of these two periods dominate the regulation, but in fact, the architecture of the Bali Kuno period (known as the Bali Aga architecture) only discussed about settlement patterns in the appendix to this regulation? If so, can Bali Aga Architecture be categorized as Traditional Balinese Architecture? Based on observations of several Bali Aga villages, finally it was realized that it was difficult to make a guideline that could generalize the Bali Aga Architecture due to the existence of very varied forms between one Bali Aga village to another. Based on these facts, the Bali Aga Architecture is more precisely categorized as an architecture that has a local character. With the tendency of not continuing the process of the building knowledge to the next generation which is becoming obsolete, it makes the Bali Aga Architecture will eventually become an architectural heritage.
