Final Critique_Demjan Haller&Pascal Ryser_Pulau Banyan

In the most flood prone areas, a sequence of islands is formed. Close to those islands a new typology of Cluster Units is implemented. Split up into smaller units, the buildings fit into the existing subblock structures and mediate the newly introduced scale with the existing urban fabric. Along the river, a series of gardens provide a private type of green space. As soon as the water level rises, islands and gardens become part of a river that has  a cross-section of at least 30 metres. In flood case the courtyards of the Cluster Units stay dry. Underneath those raised courtyards, there are membrane filtering systems to provide drinking water. Through our project the Kampung becomes a system of islands and is provided with infrastructure and green spaces.
