Following the success of the 2012 INUNDATION 1 research studio, JAKARTA's shifting coastline will again be the primary site of investigation during our collaborative design research workshop with Hong Kong University and Universitas Indonesia, where our goal is to identify the localized effects of inundation and to produce proposals among the megacity's unstable geography of water. Prior to this design research workshop, students will participate in a design charrette with StudioMake and intervening critic, François Roche in BANGKOK, Thailand. This one-week project in collaboration with students from Rangsit University will introduce comparative urbanisms for the studio's collective research into inundation and its ecological, social, and spatial consequences in Southeast Asian cities. What can architecture do – as a method for research and as a practice of intervention – among the complicated compositions that shape the experience of climate change in Southeast Asian megacities? How will architecture adapt to respond to 21st century metropolitan ecologies? How can architecture find renewed purpose and meaning among current transdisciplinary efforts to confront the environmental and social consequences of the anthropocene?
