Etty Padmodipoetro focuses her work on the importance of integrating public spaces in every aspect of infrastructure design. As an architect and urban designer, she seeks to incorporate a sense of play and joy into the projects. She strives to find the balance between the often large-scale transportation infrastructure and the surrounding communities and neighborhoods. She believes that the key to success is establishing a strong collaboration and working closely with the communities and other stakeholders, from project inception to completion.
