SIGUS co-hosted a 2-week workshop on Planning Urban Expansion in Solo, Indonesia, June 1-12, 2015. It was a joint offering by the SIGUS Group at MIT, and the Sebelas Maret University, together with the Singapore/MIT University of Technology and Design (SUTD) and the Technical University (TU) of Berlin. 18 students participated. The workshop addressed the critical urban expansion issues in urban areas of Indonesia, using Solo as the reference. Particular interest was in connectivity issues of large organizing frameworks, along with housing strategies to address urban growth. Two types of expansion issues were explored: issues related to the extensive farmland using land farming divisions as basic framework, and issues related to expansion influenced by small villages surrounding Solo.
