Central-Park _Through a shortcut in the course of the Ciliwung River, the yearly flooded area in the middle of the Kampung becomes a detention basin. The former inha- bitants of the generated island find a new home on the other side of the river. A gradual process of recultivation on the island can take place. A network of paths makes sure that the area can be used as a recreation zone – already at an early stage. After the restoration of the ground, the area serves for agricultural purposes and offers opportunities for fishing and recreation. The buildings form a clear facade to the park island. Through the decline of the building height and a network of overlapping roofs the rain water can be collected and will be stored on the highest point of the terrain.
