PROJECT SUMMARY

Formal-Informal DNA

Urban network upgrading

The quasi-voluntary relocation of informal dwellers in large-scale urban development projects typically results in the dissolution of communities, long commutes to distant workplaces, cultural disorientation of individuals and families, and further adverse effects. Countering standard eviction practices, the submitted proposal for a marginalized settlement in Tangerang, Banten identifies strategies for a gradual upgrading of physical and social space.
