JaJakarta - Innercity Industries

More Info


Our research group aimed to map and understand some of the major issues Jakarta is facing. From a larger scale towards the smallest scale, many problems seem to be connected. We have tried to display and explain these issues in our research book. While visiting one of the city's most notorious spots, the Tanah Abang area, I became fascinated by the huge amount of activity. The clothing processing, manufacturing and vending seemed to be concentrated in a particular area. It also became apparent that the functionability of elements within that area could be improved. Therefore my designs tried to re-configure elements within that district following an urban growth model developped earlier with the group. My graduation project consists of 3 programmatic configurations: retail/production ; housing/production and production. Following 5 specific trends I have explored possibilities to facilitate the growth of this area.
