PROJECT SUMMARY

Vertical informal settlement and waste recycling center

This housing strategy in Jakarta aims to offer an alternative semi-organized structure, addressing people otherwise living in informal settlements that continuously face severe flooding.

At the same time the project promotes waste recycling and thereby helps address a major problem and cause of flooding in Indonesia’s capital of ten million inhabitants, where the congested canal system is jammed with waste.
