Abstract Jakarta, the capital city of the island nation of Indonesia, has traditionally had a strong relationship to water. In the past sixty years, rapid population growth has degraded the rivers systems which have become highly polluted with household and industrial waste. This problem has been largely ignored by both the government and the general population, leading to an even greater taxation on this invaluable natural resource with devastating social and economic expense. In order to address this problem, a strategy has been devised to reverse the attitudes and actions that people take towards their waterways, while raising general awareness of the issue. A self-propelled sensor network explores the city’s rivers, alerting the populace and directing floating bioremediation units to locations where action is required. By forcing an acknowledgement of the effect that individuals and neighborhoods have on water quality, the networked system seeks to reverse the repellent nature that water currently has on people, while revealing the impact that architectural landscaping can have on the perception of and reaction to reality.

Indonesia is a country made up of over seventeenthousand islands. It’s capital is DKI Jakarta located on the central island of Java. It is a country of a vast number of peoples and cultures. There are over two-hundred and thirty-eight million people in Indonesia, as of their last census in 2010. This makes them the world’s fourth most populous country after China, India, and the United States. Unlike these other countries, however, the space available on the Indonesian archipelago is far less per person. While there is unoccupied space, and very low density populations throughout the country, there are good reasons not to try to develop these areas. For instance, the large area on the island of Borneo is one of the last great rain forests in the world, part of the reason that Indonesia has the second highest rate of biodiversity on the planet. The country also spans from the Asian to the Australian continents. The western side contains far more Asian species, while the eastern side is more Australian. Much of the eastern islands cannot be developed either, as they are weirdly lifeless swamps, and while some native tribes have made their home there, the land is not valuable for modern agriculture or other developments because the land is of such poor quality. In order to maintain the biodiversity of Indonesia, further building developments and population movement should occur within or around the areas already developed.

Relative Humidity











Cat Callaghan

There are significant advantages and disadvantages to the climate in Indonesia and Jakarta. The country lies right across the equator, so it has fairly stable temperature patterns. There are no massive swings in temperature or humidity throughout the year, so in terms of designing for the area, a need to insulate against the cold will never be a problem. On the other hand, this stable temperature is quite high, usually staying between seventy-five and ninety degrees year round with over seventy-five percent relative humidity. So, to say it is muggy may be an understatement. These fluctuate slightly with the rainy seasons that effect the area. Since the islands span from the Indian Ocean to the Pacific Ocean with intermediary seas in between, they are subject to weather patterns that effect each. While Jakarta has only one monsoon season and one dry season, other parts of the country are subject to two or more rainy seasons. Jakarta receives most of the two meters of rain it gets within a period of four months from January to April. This also means that without proper water management, they are also subject to flooding in the seasons where they might otherwise get less rain. Climate Data 13


The island of Java is in central Indonesia. It is home to almost sixty percent of Indonesia’s massive population, making it the most heavily populated island in the world. It is home to the majority of Indonesia’s cities, drawing even more people to this already overly populated island. It has also been the home of many of Indonesia’s older civilizations, containing such monuments as Borobodur, one of the best preserved and largest Buddhist temples in South East Asia. The topography is quite varied, from the flattened areas, like Jakarta. There are volcanic areas in Central Java. Undeveloped areas are covered in swathes of rainforests, which are under consistent threat from human development. The majority of Indonesia’s GDP is generated on Java, primarily from industry and agriculture.

Cat Callaghan Jakarta

Jakarta has been described by many as having no singular defining features. Having been there, I would have to say that it is characterized by this patchwork nature. While it is dirty and poorly governed, the people that I met in my journey, from the upper class to the very poorest of people have a sense of joy about life that perhaps we are lacking. Virtually everything is characterized by differences. There is the mall culture and the street culture. The former being comprised of the middle class, who strive to become more affluent and relish in conspicuous consumption. These people spend the majority of their free times within the confines of a multitude of malls, seeing movies, shopping, eating, and anything else one might do in their spare time. In contrast, the latter is defined by the Indonesian version of Islamic culture, which is a vast subject in-and-of itself. These people attend the street markets and locally organized events. While people identify themselves as belonging to one culture or another, there is no clear dividing factor. There are malls that resemble street markets and no one can exist inside forever. There is also the contrast between the numerous cultures that exist within the city. The most prominent is the aforementioned Indonesian Islamic culture. However, as migration continues toward the city, larger communities of other Indonesian Island cultures are amassing. The third group, which has been, since the departure of the Dutch, scapegoated for many issues, are the Chinese. They, however, have been in Jakarta for hundreds of years. I have even heard people complain that in Glodok, the Jakartan China Town, that the Chinese descendants no longer know how to speak Chinese and choose to instead speak Bahasa Indonesian. As more people move to the city, there is the potential that the differences that characterize people’s view of their city and how they define themselves will drastically decrease, as has happened in many other cites, or will continue to grow and cause increased tension. One might hope that the differences are maintained, but the tension associated with this will decrease as the importance of social and environment factors outweighs the necessity to emphasize these differences.

The population of Jakarta, particularly since the expulsion of the Dutch in 1949, has drastically risen. This is in part due to the increasing disparity between the rich and the poor, which is driving hundreds of thousands of people to centralized cities, which are seen as being the only way to avoid devastating poverty. Building development has expanded well beyond the legal limits of the city, but the potential outward sprawl is limited by the topography. To the south of the city is a now dormant volcanic mountain range. This means that most growth must occur to the east and west.

Geography + Growth 19


Jakarta City Line

As previously mentioned, the sprawl of Jakarta has extended well outside the original city lines. There was once a hope that satellite cities would draw people to other areas, but over time, growth has merged all of these areas into a single fabric. This extended area, known as Jabodetabekja, is now regarded as the second largest mega-city in the world, home to almost thirty million people. There are few high-rises, so this sprawl is set to continue, particularly along major roadways and river fronts.

Housing in Jakarta tends to be limited to no more than two to three stories. The government has occasionally attempted to build high-rise apartment buildings, but due to the structure and space provided, most people choose to remain in low-rise housing as there are more economic and social opportunities in non-formal settings. The very wealthy have segregated themselves into gated and guarded communities, ignoring the dilapidated situation that most of their fellow citizens are subjected to. That being said, from interviewing people, it seems as though the majority, even in the worst areas, are content to live where they are, with the only wish that their houses would not flood every day during monsoon season. I believe, that new educational requirements will lead people to be more ambitious in regards to their wellbeing, and over time, the housing disparity may decrease.

There are a multitude of problems with the control of waste that ends up in the water system. This is in the form of human waste, from black and gray water, industrial waste, and commercial waste. Most people get their drinking and washing water from shallow wells, the rivers, or from still pipes. Industrial complexes and newer buildings can also be connected to deep wells, of which there are about 1,000 in the city. All of these systems are intertwined, and when there is an issue with one, it causes a ripple effect in the others. There have been many problems, the most detrimental being increased frequency and severity of flooding, lack of clean drinking water leading to declining health, subsidence caused by over-drawing of the deep aquifer, and high expense, particularly for the poor. It was not until the 1970s that the government of Jakarta even began examining these systems, and they still hold that sanitation is a “personal responsibility�. Effective intervention at this point, in any conventional manner, is not seen as feasible, particularly economically. Additionally, the vast blanket of buildings causes the construction of new sewer systems to be difficult at best.

Waste Disposal

There is one large landfill to the south of the city of Jakarta. In parts it measures over three kilometers long by one kilometer wide. It is considered to be the largest landfill in south east Asia. It is on the verge of being full, although what determines that is unclear. There were once seven other dumps located within the city, but the last one of those filled up about a decade ago. Despite this, people had continued to put trash at these sites up until a tragic accident in a neighboring city in 2004, in which an unstable pile of trash fell over, crushing houses and killing dozens of people. Since then people have stuck the more traditional method of putting trash in piles in empty spaces. The map to the left shows all the areas that could be found from satellite imagery at which trash has been relocated. The size of these areas varies, as can be seen in the middle three images, which are at the same scale. In the process of searching for these areas, a pattern emerged. In densely packed areas, the trash was moved away, or at least not compiled, but in areas that were less dense and seemed to be at least somewhat organized, piles appeared at the edge of communities, usually in an unoccupied corner lot. The vastness of the tendency is a testament to the failure of the systems currently in place to deal with waste disposal. It is because of this failure that such a large amount of trash ends up in the rivers daily.

Despite immense poverty within Jakarta, there is a large and increasing number of people who have access to the internet. This is currently dominated by access through internet cafes, but this is rapidly changing to access through smart phones. It is estimated that by 2013 there will be more people in Indonesia who have access to the internet than there are people in Japan. Jakartans, like many other people, have a fascination with social networking. They make up some of the largest populations on Facebook and Twitter. It has been stated that if Facebook were a nation, Jakarta would be its capital, with over seventeen million people claiming it as their home. This is, of course, more people than there are in Jakarta, but the point is there. There have also been recent articles about Twitter that bring up the issue that there are reasons that things that are strange to Americans tend to trend on the site. The reason is that Indonesians are very invested in the system. It has been hypothesized that the reason that Indonesians are so eager to use social communication via the internet is that they have natural tendencies towards social networking in the real world. Unlike cities in the United States, the areas within Jakarta are effectively made up of hundreds of little villages, or Desakota, which literally translates to village-city.

Jakarta, the capitol city of Indonesia, has traditionally had a strong and positive relationship with water because of its abundance. However, due to its rapid growth over the last half century, with a current population of over 10 million, coupled with the government’s failure and inability to provide basic sanitation infrastructures, the waterways have degraded to a point that even treated water must be boiled before use. Thus everyone is aware that there is an issue with their water, even if they do not believe that anything can be done.

In order to address the problems with the waterways, I propose a bottom up remediation system that utilizes the human capitol of the city. To this end, I have designed a series of modules, each with its own function, to act as networked immune system for the city.

This alone, however, will not be sufficient to mitigate the vast problems facing the water systems. Thus, up-to-date information will be provided to the local citizens with suggestions for required actions. This provides a system through which perception toward water can be altered from one of despair to one of empowerment. Over time, as attitudes change and the rivers become cleaner, the system can be in a more passive state, becoming less dependant on a need for action and reaction. In this state, the modules dock themselves to the shores and to each other creating a new public space that beckons the citizens of Jakarta to enjoy their achievement.


Jakarta does, however, have a young population with access to inexpensive technology that grants even the poorest of people access to information through the internet and social networking. Additionally, they have strong work ethic and sense of community, even if opportunities to exhibit these qualities are not available.

The small sentinel units work to seek out areas in which human waste, toxins, wastewater and trash are entering the river system in order to determine the appropriate action for the larger remediation units, while calling attention to the problem through a regulated lighting scheme.

The site chosen to work with was based on several factors. The first was, by necessity, along a river front. Additionally, the prevalence of built footbridges made it a safe area to traverse, particularly since many river crossings are entirely vehicular or consist of a single pipe, which has been put to a second use. It was an area that was primarily residential, but was adjacent to a commercial street. Additionally, the site was quite near to some of the few towers within the city that were outside of the wealthier areas. This provided an opportunity to get a bird’s eye view of the site and not simply to examine it from ground level.

Project Proposal

One of the primary issues facing any remediation efforts facing Jakarta is a high degree of misperception on the part of people who do not live directly next to it. There are those, particularly those living in wealthy sheltered communities, who choose to believe that everything is fine. They have piped water, which still needs to be boiled, but they have an inappropriately positive view of the waterways, convincing themselves that nothing need be done. The converse is people, generally less well off, but with enough means to not live on the waterfront, who are inappropriately appalled by it, viewing the rivers as a cesspool that should never be approached if it can be avoided. If people can come to terms with the reality of the situation, then action can finally be taken on a large scale, supported by both types of people.

The importance of paying attention to the ecological effects of sea-level rise, flooding, and pollution are going to become ever more pressing. Much of Jakarta lies within two meters of the current sea level. Inundation of the northern part of the city is more likely than not to take place within the next fifty years. A great deal of focus is being placed on the massive flooding, tied to El Nino, that takes place every five years or so. A few programs are being enacted to help minimize the damage that this can wreak. However, this has diminished focus on the pollution loads on the rivers, which is a large contributor to increased flooding within the city.

Through an examination of eco-attention projects, it seems as though it is through a combination of unnatural, unexpected, and startling imagery that groups or individuals have gained the most attention to problems facing the environment. With this in mind, the Network/Flow system applies these lessons to its form and appearance.

The sentinel module is at the heart of the Network/ Flow system. It is designed to work as an individual sensor unit that sends out information regarding its position and the water status in that area. It examines turbidity, acidity, and temperature in order to make this assessment. It is controlled by the use of an Arduino board that is connected to rotational motors, the sensors, GPS, and wireless communication. It can also work much like a flock or swarm, coalescing into a mass. This serves several purposes. The first is to determine the extent of particular pollutants in the water, creating a gradient of information. It also provides a walkable landscape on the surface of the water. This allows access to problems, other units, or simply as an ephemeral passage. In times of extreme flooding, it can even provide a place of refuge for those stranded or struggling to traverse high waters.

The movement of the sentinel units is based on the sinusoidal movement of cuttlefish fins. This movement creates positive and negative pressure allowing for forward propulsion. In order to obtain this movement, gears are used in conjunction with moving panels in order to create lateral movement from rotational movement. These lateral pieces are then attached to a fin, which acts to propel the sentinel forward when used in tandem, or rotational movement when one fin moves at a time. Mechanical Movement 47

When it does sense this, its fan opens up, much like a feather duster, the type of filter feeder pictured above. These fringed tentacles act as a net for trash, collecting it within its mass. When pressure is high enough to indicate that the module is full, it closes up around the waste. The unit then lights up red and floats on the surface of the water in order to have the waste removed and dealt with appropriately.

The Water Island serves several purposes. It filters water using rhizofiltration. It also filters water through its porous skin, modeled on the hierarchical structure of diatoms. The layered skin contains smaller and smaller holes as the layers are stacked, allowing only water particles to transverse the membrane. It also serves as water storage, allowing an intermediate enjoyment of cleaned water between the implementation of the project and its culmination. Furthermore, it is an occupiable space that serves as an area of refuge when required, or a place to enjoy when desired.

The Shore Planters are built on the shore and adjacent surfaces. They serve to create a surface through which water can move through while filtering said water. This permeable surface permits water to be absorbed into the ground, allowing it to go into the water table, rather than overtaxing the capacity of the river system, which is a leading cause of flooding.

The Shore Planters also serve as an intermediary between the landscape and the waterscape. The moving modules can attach to the sides allowing for a continuity of surface regardless of the height of the water. It is reminiscent of architectural and landscaping techniques that have been present in traditional Indonesian architecture, particularly on the island of Java. This continuity blurs the otherwise stark boundary between what might be categorized as landscape or building, solid or fluid, ground or water.

When the Network/Flow system senses a problem, the modules react to those in close proximity, bringing in the appropriately planted larger units to deal with the pollutant at hand.

The modules, in a sense, flock to the problem, acting as a collective remediation body. They remain as long as they are needed. Once a problem is contained or dealt with in conjunction with the actions of the area’s members, the modules disperse, returning to their individual missions.

In order for this system to work, people within Jakarta must be involved. They have many opportunities to get online, with official and makeshift internet cafes in virtually every neighborhood. As previously mentioned, there is also unbelievably inexpensive wireless data services for cellphones. In fact, the cost of a phone is far less than the cost of water per month. It is my hope that the former can be used to decrease the cost of the latter. The modules will be continuously sending data about their status, but this can be used by more than just policy-makers and scientists. Much like the games of Farmville, etc. the Network/Flow System requires constant upkeep. Through the use of previously pioneered motivational techniques, I hope to transfer this success from a virtual world with virtual problems, to a real world, with very real problems. By providing constantly updated information, citizens of Jakarta have the opportunity to aid in fixing their water systems while creating new communities that bridge the virtual and real world.



Project Proposal

Cat Callaghan

The Network/Flow System cannot be implemented everywhere all at once, so there are a few key places in which this will occur and spread from there, adding new starting points on occasion. As the system spreads, it can map and interpret areas that require the most help. By working worst to best, the river systems will slowly, but eventually return to a more pristine state.

As the water quality improves, quality of life and social investment will improve as flooding and pollutants decrease. The change in attitude is, in many ways, just as important as the physical change. At the moment, the rivers are treated rather poorly, and while this proposal will help to decrease this effect, it can never fully achieve its goals if people continue to treat it as their personal trash can, particularly as the population is projected to continue to grow. However, if attitudes can be changed, then perhaps the relationship to the waterfront can be reversed. It was once the heart of the city, now it is occupied only by those who have no other options. I hope that people will once again be able to embrace this abundant natural resource.
