The Jakarta administration is set to revitalize Taman Ismail Marzuki (TIM) cultural center in Central Jakarta, including the HB Jassin Literary Documentation Center, located inside the TIM complex, in 2019.
Nov. 10 next year will be TIM’s 50th anniversary.
Acting Jakarta Tourism Agency head Asiantoro has said the agency was now reviewing the revitalization master plan.
The agency has also communicated with the city's Library and Archive Agency to plan the revitalization of the HB Jassin center.
"We hope to see significant results of the revitalization project next year," Asiantoro said as quoted by beritajakarta.id.
The head of TIM management unit, Imam Hadi Purnomo, said the revitalization would be conducted in all parts of TIM.
The management will add green open space and a water element in TIM, so the place will become a tourist attraction and an attractive art performance center.
"On TIM's 50th birthday on Nov. 10, we will announce the results of the master plan review," Imam said.
The Jakarta administration will involve prominent architect Andra Matin in the revitalization project. (cal)
