Bintan EcoIsland

Bintan, Indonesia

The ‘EcoIsland’ development model projected for Bintan identifies an innovative approach to a sustainable development, creating a dialogue with the natural surroundings and capitalizing on the economic and demographic strengths of the territory.

This development-based strategy combines various aspects of ‘second nature’ or ‘productive & recreational landscapes’ together with contextual and economically viable ‘urban components’ which are then integrated into the existing complex ecosystem found on Bintan Island. By combining eco-island densities and building typologies, sustainable mobility and diversity of tourism-based activities along with emerging economic clusters; this methodology establishes a strategy for landscape intelligence which underscores the competitive advantages for Indonesian economic development together with synergies and investment potential from nearby Singapore.
