Governor Sounds a Warning on Architecture

Dewa Beratha Pleads for Balinese Cultural Elements in Local Building Values.

(1/5/2004) During a working visit to the Berawa district in Canggu on Bali's Southwest Coast, Governor Drs. Dewa Beratha, called for a greater commitment to preserving Bali's environment including the use of architectural styles that reflect the island's rich culture.

Accompanied by the Chairman of the local People's Consultative Assembly (DPRD Bali), IBP Wesnawa and the Bupati of the Badung Regency, AAN Ratmadi, the Governor used the occasion to inspect local civic work projects to remind the Balinese of the need to incorporate Balinese architectural principles in building commercial and private structures. Fearing that Bali's world renowned "style" would soon be lost, the Governor said, "I hope the people will no longer use building models that do not conform with existing (Balinese) values."
