The design aims to improve the deteriorating physical and social conditions of the Bukit Jarian Kampong in Bandung. Two mutually-dependent measures are initiated. First, the scheme introduces a sanitation hub as public space in the center of the slum. Second, the project’s objective is to restore the polluted river, which has been used for an extensive period as a garbage dump.
Designed in a square pattern of bridges, buildings and platforms over a landfill bordering the river, the proposed hub is accessible from several sides, opening connections to the neighborhood while providing a range of public amenities, such as public toilets, a recycling facility and a learning center.
Antonius Richard Rusli from Universitas Katolik Parahyangan views the fundamental transformation through participatory design as the key element of his project that brings spirit of the neighborhood (Kampung) and desirability back to an inaccessible slum along the river. His project, “Social Design: Urban neighborhood remediation” in in Bandung, Indonesia, improves deteriorating physical and social conditions of the Bukit Jarian Kampong by introducing a sanitation hub as public space in the center of the slum and also restoring the polluted river, and won the “Next Generation” 3rd prize.
The Holcim Awards competition also seeks bold ideas for tomorrow in the “Next Generation” category for participants up to 30 years of age. The 3rd prize went to Antonius Richard Rusli from Universitas Katolik Parahyangan, Indonesia for an urban neighborhood remediation plan of Bandung, Indonesia.Read more » baca lebih lanjut (Bahasa Indonesia) » อ่านเพิ่มเติม (Thai) »
The jury greatly appreciates the efforts undertaken by the group of young designers to improve the quality of informal settlements in Indonesia. Particularly valued is the project’s vision to conceive of sanitation concurrently as an architectural, urban and a social project. Infrastructure design is viewed in terms of its physical and societal impact, improving the environment while improving community relations.
Desain ini ditujukan untuk meningkatkan kondisi fisik dan sosial di Jalan Bukit Jarian, Bandung, Indonesia yang memburuk. Diawali dengan dua langkah yang saling bergantung. Pertama, skema memperkenalkan pusat sanitasi sebagai ruang publik di tengah kawasan kumuh. Kedua, tujuan proyek ini adalah untuk memulihkan sungai tercemar, yang telah digunakan dalam jangka panjang sebagai tempat pembuangan sampah.
Dirancang dalam pola kotak yang terdiri atas jembatan, bangunan dan pelataran di atas urukan tanah yang berbatasan dengan sungai, pusat sanitasi yang diusulkan dapat diakses dari sejumlah sisi, pintu penghubung ke kawasan sekaligus memberikan berbagai fasilitas publik, seperti kamar mandi umum, fasilitas daur ulang dan pusat pembelajaran.
Juri sangat menghargai upaya yang dilakukan oleh sekelompok perancang muda untuk meningkatkan mutu hunian liar di Indonesia. Yang terutama dinilai adalah visi proyek untuk menciptakan sanitasi sebagai proyek arsitektur, perkotaan dan sosial yang saling terhubung. Rancangan infrastruktur dinilai dalam hal dampak fisik dan kemasyarakatannya, yang meningkatkan lingkungan sekaligus memperbaiki hubungan masyarakat.Komentar oleh juri dalam Bahasa (PDF, 125.96 KB) »See more

People: The project expands the definition of sustainability beyond ecological terms into the area of social sustainability. By engaging the involvement of inhabitants, they have increased awareness of how better hygiene improves their quality of life. Improvement of Bukit Jarian and other marginalized areas depend on the provision of basic services, equal resource distribution, adequate social infrastructure, and programs – needs which have conventionally been ignored. The project provides necessary sanitation system infrastructure and public spaces in the overly-dense fabric in the form of a dynamic and productive zone.
Progress: This comprehensive system of sanitation infrastructure, public space and services, active and passive building technologies, and productivity through regionalism approach is a conceptual framework that can be utilized to address other severe riverside housing and similarly challenging topography, both within Bukit Jarian and globally. It is a conceptual prototype and adaptable framework that encourages flexibility and a critical re-thinking of new design approaches and processes in these spaces. The system can be readily applied in other locations as it relies only upon low-technology and local manual labor.
Planet: The aim of the project is also to restore the defective environment along the riverside. Water that was once a danger is now a resource. Wetlands filter the water through the site, which can be used for irrigation in urban agriculture and gray-water applications filtered through several processes of filtration. Building itself doesn’t tread on greenery, it is floating and framing on greenery and river to reduce footprint also creating a vista from upper level of dense fabric.
Prosperity: The long-term prospect is the priceless education impact for inhabitants through a learning center that is assisted by local government. This project also serves as a catalyst that encourages new uses in the surrounding areas. The agriculture encourages a new micro-economy and replaces the abandoned riverside to public esplanade and greenery.
Place: The site is fundamentally transformed from an inaccessible and irresponsible landfill along the riverside into a desirable and productive space. The building adapts Indonesian architecture that shows through tropical climate typology combined with the usage of concrete as well. It is a dynamic node of public space with both fixed and flexible programs.Download project entry poster (PDF, 2.59 MB) »See more

Our website search engine covers the web pages including project descriptions and expert profiles, PDFs, images and videos on the LafargeHolcim Foundation website. To improve your search results, here are some tips:
Our search defaults to term-pairing AND. If you search sustainable construction - then the search engine will look for any items containing sustainable AND construction
photovoltaic OR solar
Looks for either word
(clay OR mud) AND (school OR university)
Combine alternative terms for more specific searching
Excludes a term from results, automatically ANDs other terms listed
Use quotation marks to search for a specific phrase or combination
Asterisk (*) matches any word or phrase - so archit* will find architect, architecture, architectural as well as architrave
