MADE WIJAYA is remarkable man. Flamboyant, erudite, complicated, articulate, outrageous and completely dedicated to Bali and Balinese culture. Did say flamboyant?
I had a wonderful enjoyable morning with him at his house and garden (which is also his office), at Villa Bebek in Sanur on the southern coast. He came as Michael White to Bali from Australia in 1973 as an intended short break in his architectural studies but never went back. Instead, he met Braggie, Who taught him about gardening. This, combined with his architectural background and his fascination for Balinese culture, inspired him to design gardens, to date over 600 in total in Singapore, India, Mexico, Hawaii and Morocco. He is a dominant figure who has taken the Balinese garden and made a modern Idiom from it – and a thriving business. He employ ninety people at his home at Villa Bebek where he strides round from group to group dressed in shirt, turban, dark glasses and long wrap-around, shouting, cajoling, flirting, roaring with laughter and working on twelve different project at once.
