Lim Masulin (Indonesia) is “ASEAN Senior Mastercraft Designer” known to invent the BYO Living weaving technology for energy saving architecture like Toyota Headquarter’s 4,000m2 LEED Platinum ventilation weaving panels, East Java power plant’s cooling façade, and Maldives Halaveli’s outdoor furniture. On sustainable materials, he uncovers regrowable rattan with durable silica skin, tear–proof grass from CO2 absorbing peatland, and weatherproof upcycle waste. At the World Economic Forum, he shared how to make a social impact with weaving‘s circular sustainability. You can see his past work on Indonesian architect Andra Matin’s pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale 2018, which received a Special Mention Award for reflecting on material/form of traditional vernacular structures.
