Final Critique_Olivier Roth_Michael Dietrich_Made in Kampung Melayu

The River shall become a source of economic and physical wellbeing for the inhabitants of Kampung. On its Riverbank, a terraced agricultural belt containing productive tree plantations will be developed. The steps will in case of flooding provide a water retention area for the Kampung. The area of the old train depot will be activated as a craft and trade hub. The depot will be converted into a cargo station. The built fabric will be reorganized in new sub blocks based on the current structure. This allows an incremental implementation and at the same time maintains the character of the Kampung. One building consists of up to three units whereas the unit will have two floors. The lower levels of flood endangered buildings will be made out of concrete or bricks. The upper floors will have a bamboo framework structure. The inhabitants will be asked to take part and can fill in the empty structures themselves.

Oliver Roth&Michael Dietrich_Midterm Review

Our goal is to improve the economic and personal well-being of the inhabitants in Kampung Melayu. We see the opportunity of the Ciliwung river being the driving force behind this improvement. The stepped riverside will include an agricultural belt with high growing productive trees and private gardens along the urban edge. The steps will provide a water retention area in case of flooding. The area of the old train depot will be reactivated as a market and craft hub for the whole Kampung. Our strategy for the built fabric is to create new sub blocks based on the structure of the existing building clusters, allowing an incremental implementation. One sub block is always gathered around a courtyard which is semipublic and gives the inhabitants a chance to have a private garden.

During the site visit at Kampung Melayu, our group saw a clear quality at the river banks of the Ciliwung River which is due to an amalgamation of the presence of open spaces, vegetation and amenities which draw people to the river edge for recreation. This quality diminishes as we proceed to the interior part of the Kampung due to the high density and lack of open space. Bearing this in mind, our design approach tries to enhance the quality in the Kampung by introducing so called pockets of open space between the newly introduced building typologies. One of these pockets is seen as a semipublic space shared and maintained by one building cluster.

We want the ground floor and its activity to adjust to the dynamic topography (including flood surface). On the Kampung level that means that buildings, street live and vegetation adapt to the topological properties of their location. A first intervention will therefore be to clear the river edge of buildings according to the very low topography and to create a buffer zone for the flood. The inner of the kampung will be cleared according to the adaptability of the buildings to the topography. Some of them will be replaced by public open space, some by pekarangans and some by new buildings. The new building clusters will be connected and accessed by balconies. During flood the balconies become the level of the public space where live happens and the goods are traded.


Oliver Roth & Michael Dietrich_first review

The structural concept is a concrete table on the ground floor. The upper floors consist of a lightweight bamboo framework construction and a concrete core with the infrastructure inside. Rainwater is collected and stored on the top floor and in central water tanks. Black water is treated by ultrafiltration stations. Garbage is collected in-house.The riverbed is enlarged the river edge will be lowered for a riverside-park, which in case of flooding can take 2.5 meters of water. The street network in the northern block will be extended and interconnected. The density shall be lowered in the northern and enhanced in the southern block. On the level of the first floor, a balcony interconnecting all buildings provides a safe traffic zone during flood time and connects the two blocks with a bridge. In each of the blocks, a new public square is implemented.

The riverbed is meant to be enlarged. The topography at the river edge will be lowered and a riverside park will be developed. In case of flooding, the riverside park can swallow a water rise of up to two meters. The street network in the northern block will be extended and connected to the neighboring blocks. The density in the lower block shall be reduced at the cost of enhancing the density in the southern block. The two blocks will be connected by pedestrian bridges which in case of flooding serve as means of escape from the incoming waters. Along the ridge of the southern block another linear park will be created. In each of the blocks, a new public square will be implemented serving as a community center and as a strategic hub in case of flooding.

Michael Dietrich & Oliver Roth_Unit

The structural concept is a concrete table for the first floor, which stabilizes the building against the horizontal forces in case of flooding. The upper floors consist of a lightweight framework construction in bamboo with a concrete core, which stabilizes the whole structure. The core is also the location of the entire fresh and black water infrastructure whereas the rainwater is collected and stored at the top and then used and reused on its way down through the sanitary equipment. Depending on the building‘s location in one of the different flood zones, the height of the concrete base can vary. The concept of the building is to provide the structure only, leaving the spatial organization of the rooms up to the residents.
