Reclaiming Reclamation

Living in constant disruption of eviction threats throughout the history, Cilincing Fishing Village is one of Jakarta’s North Coast inhabitants that will face direct ecological and political erasure in the near future. The ability to manage and distribute these conflicts in a strategic, timely approach becomes crucial for aiding the community’s exclusion in the current development plan. By maintaining its ability to adapt and self-regulate, the community of fishermen can reclaim its place, heal the environment, and enhance their livelihood. Reclaiming Reclamation aims to design adaptive urban infrastructure that mainly focuses on mangrove restoration, fish farming through silvofishery, and preserving the activities of the oldest crematorium and columbarium existing on-site. Through the ethics of care as a foundational approach, the fishing communities are equipped with the elements to adapt with both political and environmental scenarios. By giving this agency to the fishing community, they can reclaim their place and livelihood while adapting to the government reclamation plan, not to mention, holding an important role as the frontliners of resiliency in Jakarta’s North Coast.
