CITY OF THE FUTURE

Jakarta, initially a synonym for the block-free states, by the mid 60s was dominated by anti-capitalist violence that cost over one million lives. Today, this multi-religious city with over 14 million inhabitants is a megacity with all the typical contradicting facets. Here, everything appears in extreme form: wealth, poverty, commerce, underground economy, segregation, waste, air pollution, traffic, etc. The city’s foundations are no longer able to support this density; it continually sinks below sea level.
