Our main aim in the kampung scale, was to find given qualities of the Ciliwung river and its various edge situations and to redesign them to deal with the flooding in a better way, but also to bring the life and the people to the river. Our Intervention area is only in the places where there is flooding. To free some space along the riveredges we needed to densify the the built structure. Our main densification area is set along the urban edge of the river, the steep edge, where people are the closest to the river. The flat riveredge fills up with water to create a flooding pond during rainy season. This land is used as agricultural land or as community gardens. We found that there were various riveredge situations. The steep edge needs fortification, wich can be provided by strong trees or by a staircase system supporting the ground. The flat side, that is mostly the lower side, needs more space between built structure and water. This is solved by using the flat river edge as agricultural land, or gardens. Another main intention was to connect the separated riversides by building bridges. To keep as much of the kampung life, we set them in places with are now used as river crossings. The bridges are connected by public buildings high enough to stand the river and to serve as landmarks for orientation. Along the whole river edge we intend to have a path.
home gardens for the public_The private space/garden in the Kampung is maintained and secured by it’s owners – this is why these spaces work much better than any public one where nobody feels responsible for its maintenance. At the same time we recognized that these private gardens have a positive influence on the public space and can also be temporarily used by the public. We therefore propose to implement a belt of Pekarangan Houses along the River and a Network of Pekarangan Houses over the whole Kampung.Those Houses work as a role model for further renovation of the Kampung and enhance the quality of residential and public spaces.Through this strategy of appealing the current residents by high quality housing typologies, we feel confident that the Pekarangan Houses will develop a healthy and vivid Campuran.
When visiting the Kampung we realized the importance of the street life for the people. The problem is that when the flooding comes, the people are disconnected from roadsystem and infrastructure – the river eats up the streets. Our vision ist to maintain streetlife, infrastructure and connectivity during flooding. We introduce a new typologie of concentrated infrastructural hubs. They are interconected by suspension bridges and are able to provide the qualities and functionality oft he dry season street.
The workshop closed with the Final Review of the Seminarweek at the ValueLab. All groups presented the ideas developed during the workshop in 12 slide presentations. The final review was commented by Professor Hadi, Professor Herlily, Professor Rekittke, Professor Girot, Professor Dr Schmitt, Asst Prof Lehnerer, Rita Padawangi.
The block is at first provided with functioning roadsystems and bridges, that at the same time contain infrastructure. Raw water can flow along the canals to the river.The two blocks that we received have two very different situations. One Block is set at the steep river edge while the other one has a flat edge. Since the flat area is very low, there it’s flooded badly every year. We would like to propose to enlarge the river width and bank up the ground on the block. Since the Landscape is very flat it will be used as agricultural land. On the steep side, we propose a wide staircase to handle the strenght of the waterflow. The two different situations need different unit typologies.
The two main problems of the kampung is the rapid growth of population and the missing infrastructure to live in a safe and stable environment. Our idea is to give the people an infrastucture core upon which the people have the potential to grow and build. Like the stem of a tree and its branches providing shelter. While growing vertically the footprint of the building becomes smaller and allows space for nature and recreation. The proposed vertical infrastructure gives the people the opportunity to deal with the different flood levels of the Ciliwung river.
