Best Project of Public Space by Student

About the project
Lapangan Medan Merdeka is a landmark of Indonesia that experienced irrelevancy in recent years. Praetervehor aims to reestablish the relevance of Lapangan Medan Merdeka and Monas. Such purpose is achieved by revitalizing its connectivity through the permeability approach. The concept is implemented through JPO/crossing bridge/elevated pedestrian, active frontage and bike lane around the Lapangan Medan Merdeka. These elements serve connectivity in two different areas; Medan Merdeka Barat and Medan Merdeka Timur. Each of them contains modules that respond specifically to the characteristic and needs of each area, affected by the connected surroundings. It is expected such modules would create an active permeability through needs and experience.
