The mega-operational system consists of three built zones. First is a set of floating breakwaters in the sea, located 20km from the shoreline. Second is a sediment trap system integrated with ecological trail and clam embryo shelter on the shoreline. Third is an ecological trail connecting to crab embryo shelter and observatory tower in the inland area.

The project is not meant to erase the vernacular of the community, but rather emphasizing the utilization of the river as a sanitary facility. The project is preserving local value and rejuvenating the physical realm at the same time.

Observing the river community in Jakarta has always been exciting to see how they interact with the water body within. They are inseparable with the stream. They bath, play and run! The question to be asked: How could we improve the standard without destroying their social fabric?

An interface with water protects the village from the flooding season and collects waste by recovering the mangrove’s ecosystem of the Mithi River. Docking and farming happen in this zone. An interface with the city links the settlement to the neighborhood throughout a local fishing market, community kitchen, and internet café. A transversal infrastructural piece resolves the edge with the adjacent public space, allows for fish cleaning and drying together with workshops and a community center.

At the urban scale, the proposal decentralizes the docking and market activity of the city, concentrating it around the fishing settlements. The Koliwadas become new centralities in a scheme that seeks to create connections between Mumbai’s central mobility railway spine and the city’s west waterfront. This strategy tackles problems derived from commuting distances and unhealthy fishing practices. Then, the project focuses on Mahim Koliwada, creating three main transitional pieces.

The future landscape of Ambujwadi slums. This vision can be conceived as an alternative solution to the “Slum Situation” that our cities see as the problem. This vision can completely renew the idea of a slum by introducing multiple urban artifacts where the users express their identities. Eventually representing to the city that they are too a community of “hard working humans”, who are also the builders of the city.

The Urban tower: The identity of Ambujwadi to the city. A self-sustaining tower, with mixed use programs (as per the communities’ requirements) that follows the language of the street being coiled around and within, throughout the building. This is similar to their current way of living, where social/economic/political spaces spill out.
