The first, and one of the most inspiring and successful of Subud enterprises, the S. Widjojo building, epitomises our concept of enterprise. Designed by a group of experts, it was the first multi-storey building in downtown Jakarta, of uniquely developed glass-fibre reinforced cement (GRC) which featured in the startlingly beautiful sun shades. Now dwarfed by higher and glitzier buildings it remains one of the most unusual buildings of Jakarta’s business district. Completed in 1981, it was the result of a dedicated process of fundraising by Muhammad Subuh Sumohadiwidjojo, founder of Subud. Ship-shaped, and maintaining its quiet elegance, proceeds from the S. Widjojo building funded many endeavours and activities of the international Subud organisation. Read more about how this in Historical Subud Enterprises
