Liwa city has indigenous territories known as Lampung Saibatin (indigenous coastal) and Lampung Papaduan (remote inland), each of these indigenous territories formed kepaksian region (powered) as indigenous village. Each region of the village houses has been built on traditional architectural characteristics based on the historical formation of architectural typologies. These traditional houses derived from indigenous cultural heritage that had been in existence for more than 500 years. Interesting elements of architectural typologies were characterized by the agreement of repeated forms which became unitary forms (unity architecture) with a wide coverage area that no other regions in Indonesia can exceed it. The problem today is the changing perception of how the community has been built in the last 30 years. References of previous studies revealed the existence of relationship between form and the elements of strength as indigenous local flexibility in the construction of architectural elements that can be adapted to any seismic event. This research was conducted in the form of a descriptive quantitative method. The purpose of this paper is to reveal the changes influenced by the use of materials on the function and form of today‘s Liwa traditional house. To conclude, the phenomena of change will determine today‘s sustainability of traditional architecture in Liwa for the future condition.
