Nalareksa is an art and science project that focus on sustainable creativity, research practical work, generic infrastructure, physical and chemical engineering in relations to hydro environmental issues. This project took the same name from a method of air analysis by using water as a mediator for the research innovated by Prof. Hardjoso Projopangarso, a Civil Engineer who intensively works in hydro-sustainability and construction in Indonesia. Nalareksa method is simply to get aerated water samples from sites to analyze air conditions of the locations. The water samples will then be analyzed for laboratory works using several chemical elements and formula to identify air conditions variables that will be used by Civil Engineers as a guidance to design air circulations and ventilation system.Nalareksa method became part of Environmental Engineering for Civil Engineer practical work, implemented in the national curriculum for Civil Engineer studies.
