Dreamy spires: Peruri 88, Jakarta, Indonesia by MVRDV with Jerde Partnership.

Looking down.Creating a vertical city is a notion that has tantalized architects for many years, but has it ever truly been achieved? MDVRD's proposal for Peruri 88 is the latest attempt, and it looks more promising than attempts that have gone before it.

The tower will be 400m high with 360,000square feet of shops, offices, apartments, a luxury hotel, four parking floors, a registry office, a mosque, Imax cinemas and an outdoor amphitheatre.

The proposal combines Jakarta's need for more green space, and the need to increase the city's density with existing and familiar urban typologies found in Jakarta.

There is a variety of office and housing typologies from large offices to live work units, from lofts to townhouses, from terraced houses to patio living. All are staked in blocks, each of which comes with semi-private roof park, gardens playgrounds, gyms,spas, swimming pools and restaurants.

MVRDV of Rotterdam worked in collaboration with Jerde Partnership from California who designed the podium levels up to floor 7 and Arup Dublin on engineering.
