Abstract

The dominant paradigm and the practice of urban planning and design in Indonesia has been overwhelmed with foreign idea, Western urbanism. Planners and designers deny the persistence of dual existence of society, that is of modern/ traditional, capitalist/bazaar. This paper will discourse the ambiguity of the [im]possibility of dwelling in the light of the duality of the society. The research is based on theoretical discourse related to the idea of dwelling. The analysis of the study will focus on a single case study of private development of Kota Wisata that is planned as un-integrated the large development of housing area in the suburban Jakarta. The rest occupying densely urban kampung represent those of traditional or non-modern one. In many cases, new modern development may exist mutually exclusive as separate entities against the kampung settlement that has no connection with one to the other. Findings have shown that Kota Wisata is an exemplary model of the city of onedimensional community. It denies the possibility of the low income, let alone the poor, to dwell and share urban facilities within.
