The Other: what right do we have? Foucault’s notion of Heterotopia relates to the recognition of a real ‘Other’ that is derived from a social disorder; separation. Slums, along with prisons, hospitals and asylums are placed within this common understanding of the reality and separation of the Other. But isn’t a recognition of the Other a recognition of what we already understand, therefore rendering the ‘Other’ obsolete? And is ‘Other’ just a word used to describe a disconnection of understanding? Kricak / Sidomulyo Kampung, as a hypothetical project can be described as the ‘Other’ as it is the hypothetical that allows for a separation of reality. A common project of architecture in academia and professionally is often for a client with specific demands, allowing for an ease in separation of worlds. In the case of Kricak / Sidomulyo Kampung, there are multiple realities (multiple clients, multiple layers of interaction, multiple connections) in which co-existence is a need and also a necessity, making About Us Design with the Other Home hypothetical and reality a much harder task to separate. So it is this dilemma – the disconnection of understanding overriding a separation of reality – that triggers a need Archive Ask Us RSS Submit your Ideas for [a] connection to be made to gain an understanding within oneself. Doing-as-research, as opposed to research-as-doing, sets up a dialog that begins to inform both Mobile parties, promoting heightened understanding and improved knowledge.

DEVELOPING CATALYST

REALITIES - STRATEGIES - OPPORTUNITIES To establish a further connection with kampung communities, and promote the design with the other ethos, our proposal encompasses a catalyst that must be developed with the community. Through face to face workshops and conversations, we believe that the catalyst has the potential to become an information board and a platform for education without a singular function or direction, rather, allowing adaptability and expandability in response to community needs. Our conceptual proposal for the catalyst although still in its infancy, is based on the development of strategies through a current but limited understanding of the common issues and needs often experienced within kampung communities.

NEW BUILD

REALITIES - STRATEGIES - OPPORTUNITIES The ‘new build’ building typology needed to consider existing conditions of the kampung. However the existing conditions analyzed were not of the existing built format, rather, illustrated art on walls that narrated a story of a possibility. The strategy of the ‘new build’ typology incorporates strong elements that have been teased out of the artistic illustration such as a raised plinth, separation between dwellings, elevating thresholds and materiality. Being aware of these elements from an impression and incorporating them into the typology has opened up possibilities of storage to the ground level and living to the upper, opening up streetscapes and continuing interaction between public & private spaces. Designing the typology using simple construction methods and possible staging will allow anyone to construct the ‘new build’ typology. Illustrating the possibilities into kampung ‘Sanggar” learning program can perhaps encourage a catalyst for a ‘new build.’

Stage 1 - Raised Plinth using blockwork to allow for storage underneath for materials, valuables, bicycles and carts. Bamboo flooring and raised roofing above for temporary accommodation.

Stage 2 - Raise the plinth higher and fix bamboo flooring above. Allows more storage and temporary accommodation.

Stage 3 - Construct upper living quarters including hatch b/w ground floor and upper floor. A complete ‘new build’ can be inhabited.

Stage 4 - Construct upper level decking and clothes line. Allowing interaction b/w public and private thresholds also creating a possible ground level shop front at street level.

EXTENSION + ADDITION

REALITIES - STRATEGIES - OPPORTUNITIES To meet the increasing demands and needs of an expanding population within kampung communities, simple and efficient extension and addition typologies can be developed. Through the development and realization of strategies it is possible to create these additions with minimal or no disturbance to daily life. One key strategy that must be considered is that of incremental construction. The example shown below also considers the issue of available materials, local construction practice, increased ventilation and solar access for drying. The simple and lightweight addition also shows an understanding of the issues related to local flooding and earthquakes.

Stage 1 - Insertion of new concrete block footings within existing building, no disturbance caused.

Stage 3 - Main structural members punched through existing roof, braced and fastened to existing walls.

INSERTION

REALITIES - STRATEGIES - OPPORTUNITIES Urban Kampung’s often consist of large groups of displaced communities and groups looking for greater prosperity, often arriving with little money and belongings. Urban Kampung also offer generations of rich culture, community and purpose often not seen and experienced by the broader population. The proposed micro strategy takes advantage of abandoned buildings, using the shell as a point for the insertion of new dwellings. The structure caters for two people and focuses on the collaborative / communal culture that is a large part of Kampung culture. The structure offers privacy, shelter and storage within existing structures that may be inhabited by many other individuals also. In its essence, the insertion of a structure allows for the shell to become a type of share house, where many people and families live together and for each other whilst still offering a sense of pride and solidarity through the ownership of an individual space.
