Valerine Chandrakesuma started INDOxMelt in 2018, after witnessing first hand the ever-increasing plastic waste problem in Indonesia.  Her Education in Environmental Biology and Architecture equipped her with the tool to fulfill her promise to design for not only human, but also other members of nature as an equal client. This promise shaped her all her works  which includes designing a living Breakwater for coastal rehabilitation funded by the Federal Government of Canada, and MYCOmmunity Toilet, a low-cost, off grid human waste processing system grown from natural materials and mycelium that won the BioDesign Challenge at the MoMa in 2018.  Her Master of Architecture thesis project “Plastic Monument”, were exhibited in Museum of Vancouver this year. She hope to establish INDOxMELT in 2020, at home, in Indonesia
