IABR Gotong Royong competition’s 1st prize winning design deals with issues like overpopulation, poverty and pollution. Vertical kampungs are placed on top of waste processing machines. These buildings are located in between the higways of Jakarta’s business district and the Kampungs. Big billboards pay the project: commerce as charity. The project expresses the two faces of Jakarta and demonstrates how the poor and the rich can mutually benefit. Parts of the overpopulated kampungs will be relocated so space for green areas is created. Recycling and composting by the inhabitants of the kampungs can clean up the city and provide income for the poorest.
