Envisioning Tatlin’s Tower in JAKARTA, Indonesia by PHL Architects

Friday, February 5th, 2016

Article source: PHL Architects 

Most cities around the world are facing environmental problems as a result of rapid population growth.
Industrial urbanization has also worsened the effect of an increasing population. To fulfill the need for more space, many forest and farmlands have been cleared for housing; hotel and resorts; high rise buildings and commercial areas, resulting in a poorer environment in cities and at large. With lesser farmlands comes a lack of steady food production to support the needs of highly populated cities. The loss of forests also increases global air temperatures and pollutants, deteriorating living conditions.
