Life of Flux: Vertical Living in Takisung for Rising Sea Levels

Best Project of Building or Facility by Student

About the project
Increasing sea levels caused by melting of polar ice due to global warming have made coastal areas prone to flooding. One of the areas affected by the flood is the Takisung area, Tanah Laut Regency, South Kalimantan.
Increasing sea level makes the percentage of water area more than land area. Along with increasing sea level continuously, the human population is always increasing. For this reason, efforts are needed to adapt to these conditions, namely by developing a design in the form of a dwelling using a floating structure (Floating House) with a scale that is not too large. With the idea of ​​the shape of the traditional house of South Kalimantan "Rumah Bubungan Tinggi“, it is designed as much as possible to be flexible to adjust to sea level. Modification of the building model so that it is safe from seawater inundation, especially during high tide conditions and aims to minimize the risk of damage due to sea level rise.
