ZIRCON PATH project
How do we promote a healthy living in Jakarta. Make Jakarta a healthier city for better life
11 million Jakarta's citizen produce 29.000m3 of garbage each day. This 29.000 m3 is enough to bury a football field on 5 m high. The problem is Jakarta needs 850 truck to move the garbage from Jakarta to Bekasi (25km out of Jakarta), lavish fuel energy and cause traffic jam. But not all the garbage moves to Bekasi. 2000m3 of garbage takes place on 13 rivers in Jakarta. That can make an environmental polution and decrease citizen's health
this Path takes place from Kota Tua (a historical, tourism and meeting point of Jakarta) which is near the Stasiun Beos (Jakarta's city station) to Pluit Dam by crossing along rivers in Jakarta. So when people meeting and enjoying this district, they also can walking to a new urban space (Zircon Path) that give an attractive space for Jakarta's citizen.
Along here we design people is walking on garbage. There is a Waste Avenue Expo, people can learn and experience with their sense, visual, smell, taste, hear, touch the unhealthy. The effect is using digital visualization, photo, until using real garbage which has been treated and place it as an art or installation, there is a waste recycle.
You as citizen can bring your daily waste, garbage and change it with some attractive things and game in this park (TIMEZONE using garbage as the coin).
it is designed iconic to be a new landmark that can attract citizen who saw this tower. It is a water treatment tower and can produce energy by the water fall.
Descripción del Proyecto
It is a project that Health takes a contact with human sense through an experience journey. This ZIRCON PATH project is created from urban spaces with architecture, attractive space, atractive program and recycle system as experience and educated journey. We aim to make a Jakarta a Healthier City to be a Better City, Better Life. The target is try to teach Jakarta’s citizen to care the environment, to have a healthy life through a journey. So in this project people will experience by their sense, make them feel uncomfortable, see the disgusting, smell the stinky, touch the unhealthy living, hear the sound of “yewh or yaks” and the journey end with touch and experience how the healthy living. In that journey we will provide citizen some attractive space with attractive program that can educate Jakarta’s citizen and interest them to recycling, not only garbage,waste but also the water.
Health takes a contact with human sense through an experience journey. We want to create a journey that makes people understand how bad theirs habits are and how danger are their lives. Since citizens are very stubborn people who just care about their own business, they must be push hardly to learn caring their environment. The context is around the river which is one of the life sources in Jakarta, historical place (kota tua) is also a meeting point of Jakarta’s citizen and tourist, dead area, and the big dam of Jakarta. The another issue that become the basic problem which is very related to its context is the contaminated river. On that aim, we chose the Pluit Dam with its river. The dam and the river already takes part as the jakarta core because it lies till half of jakarta. The dam also become the end point of the whole river which is all the garbage and waste gather together. That’s why this project become the recycling project from recycling the garbage till the water that can be tasted directly by the user. Hoping they can learn through the experience of effect and space that we created.
This project will need human five sense. At the first point, the user will start the journey from the kota tua, a historical place of Jakarta. And they will have bike or delman as the transport.if some of them prefer walking, it also doesn’t matter because the trail will be like a park which have benches for taking a rest. At the second point they will meet an avenue but it is being created attractively by the waste or garbage. They will challenge their five sense to cross that avenue, but, it isn’t a really bad part, because the avenue will be designed attractively and it maybe can become one of the tourism object. At the last point, they will see a place like a dream land, which is clean every where and they will have a waste park entertainment and The Water Walk. The Water Walk is a tower, itself will provide drinking water that have been recycled from the river that full of waste.
People can walk and learn how to recycle and treat the water. Inside this tower there is Water Museum, Aquatic Habitat, Water Treatment demonstration, Dispencer for drinking water, and Viewing Terrace on the Top,like water ripple

How? Touch, smell, see, feel, hear, these five sense can be the usefull tools sometimes to punish the human. Make them feel uncomfortable, see the disgusting, smell the stinky, touch the unhealthy living and hear the sound of “yewh or yaks”. Sometimes teaching is not always as smooth as you think, being cruel to teach the stubborn maybe one of the best way. With all of that , are that enough??just one more steps, they must have it. The river, which is placed as the giant rubbish bin, must be tasted by the human. Hoping they will be amazed of the process, from where they had being experience in the beginning , till the recycling area, of course the water can be taste and it is clean, but make people to drink that is hard. They must believe that the water is really clean. So we need to invite them to see the cleaning process. At the end we just can hope, they will change their bad habit and the other side, they become the participant of healthy city healthy life.
