East Java is one of the major province in Indonesia. Connectivity become more important since the city and villages is far from distance. The Toll road majorly needed to connect in short time each corner of the region to enhance the economic and future development on the rural area.
The Toll Road in Indonesia normally has a physical gate where cars pay for the retribution. The conventional canopy and shape oftenly used for easier built and characteristic of the individual region.
The case of this gate is a new gate which previously proposed as a traditional building by one of local consultant. At the end, the apperance is not really satisfying, which next to be made a competition. The objective is to replace the old design with certain requirement to be unique, as a character of the place and easily recognized by driver.
Within those brief, the design wish to fulfill all of the desire of the toll management to be stand out from the others but remain the character of the place which means only specific for the place where the design is.
The five main concept has been think carefully in order to create something specific to the local context. Speed as a gate of the faster speeding cars lane, modern in visual and eternaty which not follow by mountains which may represent in the small scale, traditional in the manner of build-up and overall look in deeper and structurally easy to construct in a way parallel with the budget constraint.
Those concept may represent of the locality and create new sculpture which may always remembered by drivers who pass the gate.
