On the banks of the Klegung River, often known as ‘The River Whisper’, in the Kulon Progo district of the Special Region of Yogyakarta, is a brand-new culinary tourism destination called Pari Klegung. The idea behind the construction of Pari Klegung was to bring people and environment closer together. This article serves as an introductory study, using Pari Klegung ‘The River Whisper’ as an example of an ecologically friendly design observation. The following research will use more thorough methodologies and information. In addition to conducting interviews with respondents, this research method makes use of architectural and environmental observation techniques. Pari Klegung is distinctive due to the land’s organic shape, which follows the existing terrain’s contours, attempts to conserve greenery, a predominance of local materials in structures, an display of river cultural relics as a celebration of local culture, and participation of locals in management. Pari Klegung ‘The River Whisper’, created by Eko Prawoto, can serve as an example of how to incorporate environmentally friendly building practices in a freshly constructed setting, with ecological elements playing a significant role in it.
