BizIn – The new National Capital City (IKN) design will be implemented in the form of the Metaverse where there is an endless virtual community world that is interconnected.
“We were excited about holograms yesterday, but now they are there and we are preparing IKN in the form of a metaverse,” said Suharso Monoarfa as the Minister of National Development Planning/Head of Bappenas in a meeting with the Special Committee for IKN in Jakarta, Thursday (13/1/2021) quoted from suara.com
He revealed that Metaverse could help the government in presenting the new IKN more clearly. He also added that there is a team that will compile the IKN Metaverse which is targeted to be completed in 4 months so that the public can get to know the IKN designs, and concepts more closely.
“Hopefully in four months, we at Bappenas can show approximately IKN if it turns out like this. So it’s no longer in the form of mockups and holograms,” he said, quoted via Antara.
He said that the implementation of the IKN was carried out in connection with the experience of Jakarta and other cities in Indonesia, indeed having a great master plan, but as development progressed, it turned out to be increasingly disorganized.
“Jakarta and other cities have extraordinary master plans, but as development progresses, they are increasingly outside the master plan track. So the urban architecture is important. We want a beautiful and clean city, not a city without a title,” he concluded, quoted from suara.com
