ARCHIPELAGO CITY BATAM
Urbanization of Singapore's Hinterland
Myriam Perret, 2012
Batam Island in Indonesian Riau Archipelago is known as an industrial city on the border, growing rapidly in the shadow of Singapore’s development as global hub. Its urbanism is largely based on Singaporean investments into industrial parks for electronic manufacturing and labor supply from various parts of Indonesia. The project proposes strategies for planning urban growth in these extraordinary conditions.
