AFLOAT -Designing a water resilient neighbourhood

©competitions.uni.xyz

INTRODUCTION

With her slogan “How dare you?” Greta Thunberg awakened millions and questioned the leaders across the world on Climate Change and its impact. A global change in weather and other adverse indicators have displayed that climate change is not a distant future anymore. Forest fires, Floods, droughts, receding shorelines, rising global temperatures, are some of the natural disasters that have substantially increased in the past decade.


Rising sea levels are now said to be responsible for receding shorelines and would cause the submerging of some of the major coastal cities. The new research shows that about 150 million people that are now living on land will be below the high-tide line by 2050.


Cities will find themselves in the epicenter of this challenge in no time.

OBJECTIVE

In the light of predicted water levels, the Govt. of Indonesia has begun the relocation of their capital city Jakarta to Borneo. While we know that the city of Jakarta has already been inhabited and damaged, can design resolve this for the inhabitants of the future by adapting to aquaculture that is going to prevail after major parts of the city have submerged.


Brief : The challenge here is to create a prototype of a replicable Flood Resilient Neighborhood in Jakarta.
