Default Peruri 88 | Mixed Use | Jakarta | 88 Floors | 400 Meters | PRO


Dutch studio MVRDV is proposing a 400-metre skyscraper for Jakarta that looks like a pile of at least ten separate buildings.
MVRDV, alongside American architects Jerde and engineers Arup, designed the 88-storey “vertical city” as a part of developer’s bid for a site in the south-east of Indonesia’s capital.
The architects explain that the building would comprise just four staggered towers, which would rise up from a commercial podium at the base. Distributed amongst these structures would be a mix of apartments, hotels and offices, as well as shops, cinemas, a mosque and a vertiginous amphitheatre accessed by outdoor elevators.
“Peruri 88 is vertical Jakarta. It represents a new, denser, social, green mini-city, a monument to the development of Jakarta as a modern icon literally raised from its own city fabric,” said MVRDV co-founder Winy Maas.
Gardens, swimming pools and terraces would cover the tiered rooftops, which the architects conceive as a jungle filled with local trees and plants. ”Our inspiration for the commercial podium and public spaces was Java’s natural setting; lush jungle and stone surrounded by expansive ocean,” said David Rogers, design director at Jerde.

If the developer wins the bid, construction will start imminently.
