Shoichiro Hashimoto&Benedikt Kowalewski_Midterm Review

Mind The Step The interventions we propose in the first stage focus on the areas that are annually hit by heavy flood and need to be changed immediately. Like in our earlier proposals we keep the greenbelt along the river and the step system inside of the Kampung; the first big step seperates the green area from the urban area. We widen the river to average 25m and lower the riverbank so it becomes very sensitive to changes of the waterlevel and is safe of beeing build on. Inside of the Kampung the topographical changes due to the step system are conquered by ramps and stairs, which control the traffic and create new open spaces at the crossings of the ne street system; stepping down to the river only stairs are used to keep the riverbank free of vehicles.
