Master plan for the City of Pangkalpinang

Landscape architecture students traveled to Indonesia in the beginning of March, where they met with city officials and collaborated with students from the Institute of Technology in Bandung (ITB), working on a master plan for the City of Pangkalpinang.

“We focused on flood prevention, education awareness and ecological recovery on our project,” said Dan Zhu, who is a URP postdoctoral associate. “Students from UF and ITB had a great joint studio experience.”

Below are a couple photos from their trip:
