Pascal Ryser & Demjan Haller_first review

Through a shortcut in the course of the Ciliwung River, the yearly flooded area in the middle of the Kampung becomes a detention basin. A network of paths makes sure that the area can be used as a recreation zone. After the restoration of the ground, the area serves for agricultural purposes and fishing (Wadocks). In consideration of the existing streets a new subblock system is introduced. Each subblock solves its rainwater collection autonomously in its semi-private courtyard. The sewage and garbage collection takes place in a building, which is close to the main streets. The process leads to a dense residential area that offers a high quality of common space and has a positive impact on the development of the whole Kampung.
