"Very cool (the results of the capital design competition). "The design that the president likes is really cool," Emil said - greeting Ridwan Kamil after attending a presentation on the design contest of the national capital with Indonesian President Joko Widodo.

According to Emil, there are four conditions that are taken into consideration in the selection of the design of the national capital. "This city must have no problems. Second, they must have an identity, that's what's important, "he said.
"We did not design a new city but a new city which is the capital. People will ask the difference between the capital of Indonesia and Brazil or Japan (for example). So identity arises there, historical issues, Pancasila, "he continued.
Third, the national capital must be contextual. That is, responding to nature, especially the region chosen to become the new capital of Indonesia is the tropics. "Because it was chosen there, then the swamps, rivers, mountains, hills must be included as an element in making the city," he said.
