MVRDV: peruri 88 proposal, jakarta

renowned dutch practice MVRDV collaborated with an international array of studios including the jerde partnership, ARUP and local developer wijaya karya to submit their design for a micro-city in one 400-meter tall tower titled ‘peruri 88’ in jakarta, indonesia. the iconic high-rise will host an eclectic range of program, from the usual retail, housing, offices, restaurant, viewing platform, luxury hotel and four floors of parking, to an integrated wedding house, mosque, imax theater and an outdoor amphitheater all under lush rooftop gardens that inject more green space into the developed urban context. the form is the result of several smaller steel-framed blocks of varying sizes and orientations, each dedicated to a separate program, stacked on top of each other creating overhangs and terraces and taking advantage of sunlight from several angles and ventilation.


employees, residents and visitors will be able to enjoy from many residential and office typologies coexisting in one structure and integrated within a vertical forest of reflective water features and native plant cultures. where the construct meets the ground plane, a cohesion of built environment and forest throughoutopen public courtyards and commercial spaces provide a lively social space for the community. despite its rather complex aesthetic, the project follows a rather simple structural logic, rooted in four traditionally-built towers with five cores connected through sky bridges, tweaked to accommodate budgetary and programmaticrequirements.

  • look like alot of building is washed away during flood or tsunami and end up in 1 place….. look scary

    gde says:
  • what a pile of decadent design !
    If this is the expression of architecture today we should worry about our cultural state.

    jf garces says:
  • they even rendered the smog 😀

    cj says:
  • Wow! Cool! Resembles OMA’s buildings. Actually it looks like a collection of OMA’s buildings. Nice!

    JR says:
  • pleeeeeaaaaaaaaase STOP IT

    totoro says:
  • interesting
    and would not work in Vermont

    Paedra says:
  • looks more like Paolo Soleri than OMA to me

    dbkii says:
  • This looks like a mashup of two OLE SCHEEREN projects in Kulala Lumpur and Singapore – in such a striking way that I can’t believe its not Ole Scheeren, but MVRDV…how it that possible??

    Hasenbein says:
  • Yup interlace and Angkasaya Raya. Ole is from OMA too.

    JR says:
  • OMG! did they just searched through their recycle bin and pulled out all previous projects and put them together in photoshop! ??!!!

    cwc says:
  • MVRDV has a design studio in our university (TU delft)……. their students are always playing with LEGO to make models. of course the outcome would be like this.

    PM says:
  • Cannot work in Jakarta, it’s so so so out of context, not only physical context but also, social and environmental context. Pretty sure there will be a lot of adjustment in the implementation and it will be totally different from the concept and vision, hence it will end up destroying Jakarta’s environment again.
