Museum of Works as a Means of Improving Professional Knowledge of Senior High School Students Through Public Intervention


Due to high school students' lack of professional knowledge, graduates contributed 7.92 percent to Indonesia's unemployment rate. This can be solved using self-actualization activities and public intervention in the form of seminars and counseling, which can be accommodated by a “museum of works” that is directly integrated with the high school environment. The goal of this study is to identify types of self-actualization activities and public interventions, as well as to create an exploratory museum. The spatial theories that being used consist of safe space, engaging space, and restorative space were analyzed and then merged with the characteristics of the high school environment. Precedent investigations were also done at the James Simon Museum and the Rio Arts Museum to serve as a standard against the theories. The theoretical analysis and precedent study yielded 9 concepts and design strategies that addressed building mass composition, spatial quality of space, museum-school spatial integration, circulation, facade aesthetics, lighting, ventilation, material types, and self-actualization spaces. The museum's 9 design idea was adapted to the 1.03-hectare site of the Immanuel Christian High School Pontianak, Indonesia. The study's findings resulted in the creation of "museum of works" with a floor size of 7921 m2 that is directly connected to Immanuel Christian High School Pontianak. Exhibition Space, Auditorium, Professional Exhibition Room, Courtyard Park, museum shop, and café are all part of the museum's space program. The final goal is to educate each student about the types of professions that are appropriate for them to pursue in the future.
