PROTO TAMANSARI
WHERE URBAN AND AGRICULTURAL FORMS OF LAND USE COEXIST


Proto Tamansari is a research project, dedicated to develop alternative planning tools for the urbanisation of Indonesian Desakota areas.

Desakota’s are areas in the extended surroundings of large cities, where urban and agricultural forms of land use coexist and are intensively intermingled. Many Indonesian cities suffer from issues caused by the vast urbanization of these areas, reflecting the shortcomings of regular planning tools to cope with this particular context. Proto Tamansari aims to develop appropriate planning instruments for the development of these areas. Several themes are investigated by different teams, to assess the current conditions and use them as a base for development. Felixx covers the theme ‘resilient agriculture’, in collaboration with Wageningen University. The aim is to assess and implement scientific and design-driven expertise through a number of pilot projects in Yogyakarta and Bantul.

Core team consisting of Indonesian and Dutch architects: Krill, Felixx, Shau, Eko Prowoto, Sigit Kusumuwijayah Architects and Krill with Olaf Gerson. Involved research institutions are Universitas Kristen Duta Wacana, Universitas Gadjah Mada, IHS Institute for Housing and Urban Development Studies Rotterdam, Wageningen University of Life Science, UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education Delft. The project has been initiated by Harmen van de Wal, and funded by the Dutch Creative Industries Fund.
