Latitude at JAT, Jakarta
On December the 12th 2018, Latitude (Andrea Aragone, Federico Gobbato) will intervene as keynote speakers at the Jakarta Architecture Triennale (JAT), hosted by the Indonesian Institute of Architects in Jakarta. Latitude will present the research project Floating Urbanism, a toolbox for living on water designed by carefully surveying, understanding, and redrawing six consolidated large-scale water-based settlements among the Amazon and Mekong Delta. By referring to those forms of urbanity, the research identifies new patterns and urban lay-outs which can cope with hydrologic and environmental change. An exploratory design based on the toolbox has been developed for a floating urbanism site in The Netherlands.
