Jakarta is located in the center of thirteen different rivers that are heavily populated – the people who live here rely on the waters not only for their water, but their livelihood and waste disposal. Hence, the rivers have become highly polluted and completely surrounded with slums as a result of flooding that damaged the city. The Ciliwung Recovery Project, designed for Jakarta’s largest river, was designed by Rezza Rahdian, Erwin Setiawan, Ayu Diah Shanti, and Leonardus Chrisnantyo to help address the problems of pollution as well as housing.
